Perhaps some good news?

Clark vs. Bachmann: This race is red hot

Money is surging through the election battle between U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and her Democratic challenger, Tarryl Clark, who reported totals on Wednesday that eclipse previous state fundraising records for a U.S. House race. Clark, a state senator, said she had raised a whopping $910,000 since April in her effort to unseat Bachmann, the Stillwater Republican who has become a conservative favorite nationally. Bachmann countered Clark’s news with an even bigger bombshell: She had piled up $1.7 million in the same three-month period.

I want to believe that some of the wingnuts have gone so far out on a limb, and Bachmann is certainly out there, that there will be a backlash against them by reasonable thinking people who are looking for competence in governance.
