The Republican presidential candidates brought their appetites to Iowa last night and the people's diner served up some heaping morsels of democracy. While Rick Perry liked the taste of defeat and is going back for a Texas-sized scoop of seconds, Michele Bachmann however has asked the waiter for her bill.
Yup. After a paltry showing at the Iowa caucus yesterday, the first casualty of the Republican primaries is Michele Bachmann. If only we'd barely knew ye.
Instead, you gave the world a plethora of source material that supplied endless jokes. In this respect, your presidential campaign was a roaring success. Bachmann Turner Overdriver. "The Queen of Rage." The odd Wonder Woman component to an increasingly weird Republican-inspired Elseworlds version of The Justice League. The self-applied Iron Lady (although I doubt you know that's not a reference to the Iron Man movies). Comedians will surely miss your contribution to the reality show circus that is the electoral process of deciding the President of the United States. And so, as a parting gift, like a lost bouquet dropped upon the shore to be swept out to see by the spring tide, I present to you some of the more amusing tweets reacting to Bachmann's exit. Enjoy.
