How sad is it when even your former chief of staff says they won't vote for you if you decide to run for president? Apparently that's the case with Minnesota wingnut Rep. Michele Bachmann who just announced that she's forming a presidential exploratory committee by this summer. Let the dragging of the field of Republican primary candidates even further to the right (if that's even humanly possible) begin!

Bachmann’s Former Chief Of Staff: I’m Voting For Tim Pawlenty:

Thrilling tea partiers and liberals alike, CNN reported today that right-wing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) will form a presidential exploratory committee by July. Boasting a pseudo-firm grasp on U.S. history, policy priorities, and reality, Bachmann hopes to secure America’s vote of confidence come 2012. Unfortunately, she’s already lost one vote: her most recent chief of staff’s. Serving as her fifth Chief of Staff before resigning last summer, Ron Carey said he intends to vote for Tim Pawlenty in the GOP race for President because “electability is a very, very high attribute you have to have”.

Go read the rest of their post and Ed Schultz did a mash-up of some of Bachmann's greatest hits in the video above.
