Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s new book, Double Down, which focuses on the 2012 Presidental election, has revealed that Michele Bachmann knows what we know: that she’s a loser. The book, which is a followup to the duo’s telling of the 2008 election, highlights Michele Bachmann’s rise and fall during her campaign. Bachmann, who managed to rake in just 5% of the vote in Iowa after winning the straw poll, broke down. According to the book, the scene on Bachmann’s campaign bus was dismal as Michele finally realized that people just [email protected]#$ing hate her:
Sitting in her campaign bus, in the same seat where she cried with joy in August, she now sobbed over her drubbing. “God, I’m a loser,” Bachmann said. “God, I turn people off.” With two debates ahead in New Hampshire, some of her advisers thought she should consider staying in the race. Bachmann wanted no part of it. Let’s draft a withdrawal speech for tomorrow, she said.
Bachmann withdrew from the race the day following this exchange.
Yes, Michele, you are a loser. Yes, you do turn us off. You’re so awful that the Associated Press, according to editor Jim Drinkard, “had to have a self-imposed Michele Bachmann [fact checking] quota” in some debates.
However, this may be the one bit of honesty we ever see from you.
