Move Over, Sarah Palin — There’s A NEW Mama Grizzly Ready To Sink Her Teeth Into 2012

Just when you thought Michele Bachmann’s unchecked (and wholly unhinged) egomania would finally be satiated (and silenced) by a House Intelligence Committee appointment comes this Hindenberg of a trial balloon:

ABC News has learned that Bachmann, R-Minn., also is seriously weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run. Bachmann, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, also is set to deliver a keynote speech at an Iowans for Tax Relief PAC fundraiser Jan. 21 in Des Moines, Iowa.

[…]

Although aides in Bachmann’s congressional office said she has received frequent encouragement from supporters to challenge President Obama next year, they would not confirm quite yet that she officially was throwing her hat into the ring.

However, Bachmann’s senior staff did admit the Minnesotan is not ruling out a presidential campaign. “Nothing is off the table,” Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish told ABC News when asked whether the Iowa trip signaled Bachmann’s intent to run for president. “The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year.”

Every political campaign season needs a comic relief cartoon candidate to lessen tension on the stump, like Mike Gravel, or the ‘rent is too damn high’ guy.  Sounds like Bachmann is seriously [sic] mulling her future prospects as 2012’s universally-ridiculed YouTube sensation. I for one am firmly in her corner.
