Are you sick of hearing about Michele Bachmann? No one cares, because she's not going anywhere and she will soundbite her way into media ubiquity and maybe even the Republican nomination.
If the last couple of days of the campaign cycle have seemed appreciably stupider, it's not your imagination. Last night, Sean Hannity had Bachmann on and defended her confusing John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy by playing a reel of shocking Obama gaffes. The gaffe game burns out fast, but Bachmann keeps feeding the flames — today she insisted, despite George Stephanopoulous's assurances otherwise, that John Quincy Adams was a founding father who fought slavery. (He was nine years old at the founding.)
