I don't guys. I have a really good feeling that things are gonna be picking up for Michele Bachmann pretty soon.
Because, to be fair, things can't get much worse…
Michele Bachmann's campaign staff in New Hampshire has quit en masse, frustrated by the Minnesota Congressman’s inattention to the state.
The exodus, first reported by WMUR’s James Pindell, marks the nadir of Bachmann’s free-fall since capturing the Iowa straw poll in August. While an embarrassing development, the defections may also have been inevitable. Bachmann has pinned her presidential hopes on winning Iowa, the state where she was born and where her message best meshes with the makeup of the electorate. But zeroing in on Iowa and its heavily Evangelical caucus-goers, coupled with her invisibility in the first-in-the-nation primary state, amounted to a tacit concession in New Hampshire.
Of course, Bachmann and her campaign are claiming that they don't know anything about, but none of the denials seem to be coming from her New Hampshire staff. (You'd think that'd be a pretty easy thing for them to disconfirm.)
Really, Bachmann has no one but herself to blame for this. She and Marcus should have adopted those campaign staffers when she had the chance.
