Rep. Bachmann, R-MN

Why does Rep. Bachmann remind me of Kathleen Harris? They are both way too wacky for even the main stream press to ignore.

From The Hill:

"Ten of the 14 people Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) hired early last year have left the freshman’s office, according to public documents and sources familiar with the personnel changes.
The casualty list includes two chiefs of staff, a district director, a press secretary, two legislative assistants, a staff assistant, a caseworker, an outreach and grants coordinator and a district scheduler."

What is the deal with Kathleen Harris? I recall that a lot of people made fun of her lipstick, and partisans hated her for insisting that all actual votes and only actual votes be counted in Florida. But other than that?

She was a bit crazy to say the least. She used religion as a platform, and went through somthing like three campaign managers in six months, as each of them figured out how nuts she was. Wiki has more info.
