Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
Oh baby, is the media crazy for Michele Bachmann. The starlet of the Iowa straw poll joins the ranks of an elite few in pulling a Full Ginsburg, appearing on all five major Sunday news shows. Frankly, I don't get it. When the rest of the world is scratching their collective heads at her rise to prominence and even her own party subtly tries to torpedo her campaign, a real media would pronounce the Iowa straw voters a largely irrelevant and out-of-touch bunch of bozos (Remember their last winner, President Huckabee?) and be as befuddled as the rest of us. But no, instead they will turn their slavering attention to Bachmann and treat her as a Very. Serious. Candidate. Sigh.
