Michele Bachmann Collects Over $2 Million in First Quarter, Tops Romney in Presidential Fundraising

From Rachel Weiner, at Washington Post, "Michele Bachmann collects $2 million in first fundraising quarter" (via Memeorandum).

I'm a huge Bachmann fan, as long-time readers will recall. I still get a kick out of this clip, so here's a flashback:

I covered Bachmann's town hall event at Knott's Berry Farm last year, although I didn't have a chance to meet her personally. But she'll be speaking this weekend at David Horowitz's West Coast Retreat, at the Terranea Resort at Palos Verdes, so perhaps this time. I'll be attending events there through Sunday, so blogging will be spotty. Here's the line-up:
Charles Payne, Dennis Prager, Victor Davis Hanson, David Horowitz, Congresswomen Michele Bachmann, Renee Ellmers, Marsha Blackburn, Congressmen Steven King, John Eastman, Tom McClintock Thaddeus McCotter, and Ed Royce, Kansas Sec. of State Kris Kobach, Andrew McCarthy, Ralph Peters, Tammy Bruce, John Yoo, Pat Caddell, Steven Emerson, Robert Spencer, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and Andrew Klavan.
Tonight's the opening banquet. I'll try to post a few pictures later this evening.

Until then ...

I don't think I can vote for her considering her last month in office. She voted for the Patriot Act, and didn't cite, from what I have seen, any Constitutional violation of Obama's illegal war in Libya.

I love that you're a Bachmann fan Don, it's just too perfect. And I'm so happy that she's thinking of running: an oblivious, nut-ball Christian Stepford wife is just what your party needs at this point.

Palin's an opportunistic light weight who won't run because it's easier to be a reality show star millionaire than a real politician but I think Bachmann has the wingnut chops to bring that good crazy I love to see from your side of the aisle.

C-note, yo, C-note (just speaking the vernacular of the peasantry; I know you can relate, dawg). Keep winning, Chubs.
