That which does not kill her, makes her hotter.
She has tapped into a power that turns stark adversity and suffering into aesthetic refinement. We can only pray she uses this power for good and not evil. Given her continued association with the traditional American values of fiscal responsibility and limited government - so far, so good.
Not sure we’ll see the likes of Michele Bachmann again gracing the halls of Congress. In honor of her 8 years of public service, a brief retrospective on the ascent of Bachmann.
