    *Bachmann aims to avoid stupid comments *

    Michele Bachmann has taken the cosmetics of her image to a whole new level. Bachmann has not only been certain to take careful consideration of her physical appearance but also to repair her image as a blundering presidential candidate.

    Bachmann has already made herself look like a goof. For those of you keeping score, she recently wished Elvis Presley a happy birthday on the anniversary of his death. Since she can’t take her words back, she now has someone who can limit just who asks her questions and how long they get to probe her for information.

    According to The New York Times, Bachmann’s Press Secretary Alice Stewart compiles a list of reporters who may ask Bachmann questions. The list is designed to avoid “Obama trackers” who are out to get Bachmann to slip up.

    That’s what I look for in a presidential candidate. Some people like to vote for someone they can have a beer with, I want my president to avoid situations that reveal just how unintelligent and empty-headed they are.
