CNN: Michele Bachmann faces toughest test yet against challenger Jim Graves


http://www.wtsp.com/news/national/article/279503/81/Michele-Bachmann-faces-toughest-test-yet

Annandale, Minnesota (CNN) -- Jim Graves strolled down Main Street in his pressed shirt with French cuffs and skinny jeans, a dapper enigma in a land of flannels and Wranglers. He stuck out his hand to introduce himself to a ruffian in a wheelchair scooter.

The two talked politics before the stranger confessed he's an anarchist who believes Americans should be allowed to kill three people a day. "That would take care of the idiots REALLLLLL fast," the man said with a chuckle.



Not the typical conversation for a millionaire hotel magnate, who's more prone to discuss bed-sheet thread count than shooting folks. But when people know you're running for Congress, apparently no topic is off limits. A bit exasperated, Graves wished the man well and quickly departed.

Graves isn't gunning for just any seat. He's the Democratic challenger to Michele Bachmann, the firebrand darling of the tea party running for a fourth term.

4. Bachmann, West, Akin, Mourdock, England....

All they need to do is just keep talking, their ridiculous-American Taliban-fear mongering crazy-ass-forgot-my-meds-lying will eventually screw them.

I've said it before, I'll say it again and I'll stand by it.
