    So Martin O'Malley is making noises that sound like a run against Hillary:
    O’Malley wants to be that new leadership, but in everything that matters, he’s far behind Clinton. He trails in the polls, he trails in fundraising, and he trails in party support. But the former Maryland governor knows he’s not going to overcome Clinton with resources. His plan is to stand as a liberal alternative for Democrats who want a more populist alternative to Clinton’s modest, center-left agenda, and hope that—like in 2008—Clinton loses her grip on inevitability.

    Personally, as soon as I hear any alternative to Hillary, I get interested. But I admit I know nothing about the guy except what's in that article.

    The only thing I know about him is that he somehow managed to the Maryland Governor's spot to

    Fake Edit: I'm kinda glad I just looked him up on Wikipedia. I thought he was the one that managed to lose the Maryland Governorship to the GOP, but it seems I was mistaken (he was term-limited). I had kinda written him off because you'd have to be pretty inept (as a governor or campaigner) to do that, but now I guess I should give him another look.

    True, still better than having the primaries start off with a Super Tuesday type event. I just wish the electorate there wasn't quite so old, white, and didn't worship ethanol as their God-King.

    I wouldn't count her out, she might try and grift her way into veep talks. Though no one in this current field is that fucking crazy to even consider her "Dumber than Palin as if that was possible with no national pull? OH FUCK YEAH LETS THROW BACHMAN ON THIS BITCH!!!"

    That was almost Romney-esque in its expedience.

    The hilarious part is, now that the law has writing in it that keeps businesses from discriminating against the LGBT community by refusing service, it might as well not even exist because that was the entire point of the law in the first place.

    Was leaked audio from a private fund raiser as well.

    Also I think it's in Arkansas (Georgia?) where they changed the bill to prevent discrimination and now it's in limbo because the original sponsor says it no longer does what it was supposed to.

    infact I'm sure of it.
    Bachmann is no stranger to voicing her opinion on the President's dealing with Iran, personally telling him to "bomb Iran" during the 2014 White House Christmas Party.

    "I turned to the president and I said, something to the effect of, 'Mr. President, you need to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities, because if you don't, Iran will have a nuclear weapon on your watch and the course of world history will change,'" she told the Washington Free Beacon.

    The congresswoman, who sought the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, said Obama had a "condescending smile on his face and laughed at me."

    She said he told her: "Well Michele, it's just not that easy."

    yeah, I bet that's true

    Yeah, BUT, a not inconsiderable amount of the GOP base is pretty virulently anti-establishment (or think they are) so bringing in the so-called "political outsider who won't play (read: doesn't understand) Beltway politics" seems like an interesting play, if maybe not such a good one.
