Bachmann Faces Republican Write-In Candidate

Michele Bachmann's suspicion that anti-American sentiment lurks in the halls of Congress resulted in an infusion of cash for her Democratic opponent, Elwyn Tinklenberg. Today the fallout from Bachmann's McCarthy-like rant continues, as a Republican announced his intent to run a write-in campaign that, with luck, will draw enough votes from Bachmann to give Tinklenberg the victory.

Aubrey Immelman is a psychology professor who lost to Bachmann in the primary. Immelman is a South African immigrant who, like many immigrants, has a greater appreciation of American values than those who were born in the United States.

"I gave up everything to come here, which is why I feel so strongly about the direction my country has been taking," he said Monday. "I'm a proud, patriotic American. And I cannot tolerate this festering brand of neo-McCarthyism Michele Bachmann is pushing."

It's time for Michelle Bachmann to go home.

    I already donated to Tinklenberg campaign.  I wonder if donating to Immelman's write-in campaign would help Bachmann lose?

    we got rid of our own nitwit republican senator, george allen, in 2006. i'd say there's hope for MN.
