Michele Bachmann announces she will not seek reelection

With a voice that made my ears bleed in only 3 seconds, Michele Bachmann has announced she will not be running for a fifth term as congresswoman from Minnesota.

She especially makes clear that this decision TOTALLY has nothing to do with the fact that her 2012 campaign in currently being examined for ethics violations. She also mentions that even though she ran a clean campaign and has “no reason to believe that that was not the case,” she knows that she can wear as a badge of honor that the media hates her:

“I fully anticipate the mainstream liberal media to put a detrimental spin on my decision not to seek a fifth term. Since I was first elected to Congress many years ago they always seem to find a dishonest way to disparage me. But I take being the focus of their attention and disparagement as a true compliment of my public service effectiveness.”

I will note that she does look into the correct camera this time.

Who knows what she’ll say in her remaining year and a half in Congress now that she isn’t concerned about reelection.
