bachmannMINNESOTA – Our favorite tea partier is doing her best to stay relevant. She’s made some silly remarks since ending her run for the republican presidential nomination, but nothing worth talking too much about.

Wednesday, she made this announcement:

“I have decided next year I will not seek a fifth Congressional term to represent the wonderful people of the Sixth District of Minnesota.”

But who is going to replace those wonderful campaign moments?

Bachmann assures her decision has nothing to do with the presidential run, or her concern over being reelected.

She said, “I have every confidence that if I ran, I would again defeat the individual who I defeated last year.”

Now we will never know.

But surely this won’t be the last we see of the ultra-republican.

Who we could see on a ballot is Anthony Weiner.

Mister hardball himself is taking a different political approach in his attempt as mayor of New York City.

He says he’s a changed man after his Twitter picture pickle.

In the latest Marist poll, Weiner is just five points behind his democratic competitor Christie Quinn.

But will it be enough?

If nothing else, Weiner can just continue to be the butt of political jokes.

And there are no bones about that.
