Michele Bachmann's staff lies to cover up her Teabagger trip to Hawaii while her district freezes
When Bloomberg reporter and former Time magazine White House correspondent Margaret Carlson called Michele Bachmann for a comment on the peoples uprising in Egypt, Carlson wrote that Bachmanns office told her the Minnesota congresswoman wouldnt be giving any interviews this week while she concentrates on district work.

But according to the Grassroot Institute Hawaii, Bachmann is scheduled to give a luncheon talk at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu today4,476 miles and 80 degrees F. from the subzero temperatures her constituents in Minnesotas 6th District woke up to this morning.

Read the rest of the story on Bachmann's latest lie at Ripple in Stillwater:

1. Typical. She's rarely in her district.

2. Yep, she is never there, even election time is a quick bus stop tour
And she never talks about the 6th in her comings and goings. It is all narcissistic stuff to try to raise her personal profile. The 6th is literally left out in the cold now and in the summer it is figuratively left out in the cold. It is like they are not represented at all.

7. True for 2006 and 2008
But she did get 52% in 2010...the best Republican year in decades. So that may be her high point.

8. Eventually her 15min of fame will decline
and her faddish style will go out of style and she will have nothing to show the 6th. Yet even though Tarryl Clark campaigned on local 6th CD issues she still lost.

11. Sarah's time is coming
and so is Michele's. This Tea Party fad has at least two more years to it, then there will be reckonings after 2012. While it plays to the base, the return will only be 30% or so in the general election and Palin will fade away. When the anti-intellectual sound byte gimmick wears off, both will be gone. Michele has already pissed off the GOP House leadership so she will not have a track to any real power. Soon the 6th will be sick of her doing nothing but spouting sweet crazy nothings on right wing media outlets.

4. Lying liar & how awful to work in that office
Agree with all of you - she's never in the 6th, never concerned about her constituents,, has never gotten 1 bill passed on either the State or Federal level, and yet...they keep voting for her anyway.

Doesn't she have an incredibly high staff turnover too? Now, what sane or even semi-sane person would work for her is a question (unless you're undercover), but she must be absolutely horrible to deal with on a daily basis. Not that you'd see her daily, what with her high travel/appearance/event schedule. I bet she won't commit because she's always going to "find something better", has to get Marcus to approve, etc. And probably has nonsense fits. I can't even imagine.

I mean, seriously, when has she ever "concentrated on district work"?! Other than to make occasional fundraising appearances?

Also, Ripple in Stillwater is a great blog, and he (is it Karl?) is doing excellent work. Along with Dump Bachmann, of course.

9. How come she is not in DC
congress on vacation again??

If she can be bothered to be at work then she should step down and
let someone that wants to work for the people have the job
