Yeah, right. And Sara Palin used her tits to get what she wanted.
Michele was/is a hard-driving pol when she believes in what she is fighting for, and Palin dragged big oil back to the bargaining table and made them pony up more money for the oil spill cleanup. Palin also raised taxes on the oil companies when many wanted to give them breaks for their continued business. She knew, like Any thinking person knows that, while they can move their corporate offices to another state, they have to pump the oil out of the ground before they can take it with them.
Saying that women pols are trading on their looks is cheap sensationalism.
You're right, if "politician" means "fund-raiser" or "firebrand". But Bachmann as a legislator? Eight years - one piece of legislation, and that to commemorate MN's 150th birthday? Not so much.....

Tea Party and Democrats Team up to Block Lawmakers Looking for Gun Perks
May 29, 2013

Apologies in advance to anyone who's offended that this article comes from "FAUX" news which as Democrats have recently discovered and much to their comedic dismay, FAUX News isn't all that FAUX. Turns out, they've been getting a whole bunch of stories right while the liberal mainstream media was busily engaged in their Obama love-fest.



Anyway- Here 'tis!(Tailored for length)
====

WASHINGTON – It’s not a political alliance people are used to seeing. But in states like Texas and North Carolina, Tea Party supporters have been teaming up with Democrats to defeat measures that would expand gun rights for lawmakers but not the general public.

In Texas, the House defeated a measure that would have given prosecuting attorneys and lawmakers permission to carry guns anywhere they wanted to in the state.

Current Texas law restricts concealed handgun license holders from taking their weapons into schools, bars, sporting events and federal buildings.

Democratic state Rep. Ryan Guillen originally introduced a bill to loosen those regulations for prosecutors. But when an amendment giving lawmakers the same rights was tacked on the bill, many backed out and accused Guillen of pulling a bait-and-switch.

Not only were Texas Tea Party backers upset, but members of Guillen’s own party turned on him.


“We face a higher degree of risk because we’re known and people might not like our opinions,” Springer said.

Both Springer and Guillen cited the attempted assassination of former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords as an example why lawmakers should be given special gun rights.

“If we’re going to push for gun rights we need to push for equal gun rights,” he told FoxNews.com , adding that a Texas mother going to a grocery store should have the same right to protect herself and her children as a lawmaker would.

Calls to Guillen for comment were not immediately returned.

The general assembly session ended with the bill being buried in a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

If it had passed both chambers and gotten the governor’s signature, it would allow anyone elected or appointed to a North Carolina public office to carry a handgun or pocket knife to any location in the state.

In New York, state lawmakers there are trying to pass a provision in their gun laws that would allow retired police officers to keep assault weapons and high-capacity magazines they bought and used when they were on the force.

If any low information Americans are confused by the article, I'll sum it up for you.
It's typical Orwellian politics embraced by liberals and if you don't know who George Orwell was, I can't help you.
The gist of it is:

"Not surprisingly, there has been yet another revelation in the unfolding of the James Rosen investigation scandal. On Tuesday, it was discovered that Attorney General Eric Holder went “judge shopping” to find someone who would sign off on a subpoena of Fox News Correspondent James Rosen’s personal records. Apparently, Holder went to three different federal judges before he found one that would agree to sign the subpoena without telling Rosen or Fox News.

However, the only morning show coverage of this important development in this scandal was found on the Fox and Friends; no other network or cable show devoted a sentence to educate the public about this discovery."

That IS excellent advice. Perhaps you should consider taking it yourself.
Folks, I'm going to suggest that we stop feeding Yellow's tantrum. I'm sure we all have better things to do than to keep rewarding a spoiled brat with even more attention.
Yellow, I'm sure you have a lot to offer, but until you've learned civility, I for one am not interested in hearing anything else you might have to say.
I'm intrigued by his stage name.
Yellow Star Seed is ----> BACK!

Wouldn't that imply he thinks posters have missed him? No offense to Mr. Yellow but I didn't know he left.
In fact, I didn't know he was ever here.

Reminds me of the the discomfort someone might feel when coming through the front door and yelling, "I'm home!" and no one responds or looks up because no one gives a flying fig.

May I make a suggestion to everyone on the thread for today?

I think we should all be on our best behavior towards Catcher today. Today is the brightest day of the year for him, its like a national holiday, I'm sure he's started his day early and has the day all planned out, the caterers called, The bar filled, the ice machine all checked over. All in anticipation for the National Spelling Bee competition being held today..........

Lets all make this day special for the catcher..........

He deliberately sought out a judge "that would agree to sign the subpoena without telling Rosen or Fox News" ?!?

I can believe--if only barely--that Holder signed the subpoena without being aware of WHAT he was signing. But after this I don't see how ANYONE, not liberals, not Willie, not Obama or Holder himself, can deny that Holder knew exactly what was going on from the very start.

I wouldn't even do that for his birthday. Besides, I happen to be a champion speller myself and could probably whip his butt.

Obama still maintains he "has confidence in Holder"....and why would that be? Maybe because this is trickle down thug-style liberal politics at work and it all came from the top.

The bread crumbs everyone is following seem to be creeping closer and closer to 1600 Pennsylvannia Avenue.

Along the same lines, I wish someone would tell me why
former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House 157 times thus far during the Obama administration and 118 of those visits were during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits.
That's alot of visits. They must really like each other!

However, I am troubled that the IRS and the AP scandals are getting so much press. Benghazi not so much. I believe this is Obama's plan and it's working. Working with delinquents I am well aware of the general/lieutenant relationship. The general stays very quiet and lieutenants are expendable.

Benghazi will be front and center again when the House Oversight and Government Reform Commitee has it's final findings. The commitee is currently pushing to get all the relevant WH emails and also the names and access to all the survivors who were there. And eventually the WH will have to turn them over..... they have no choice. The committee has also issued more subpoenas just yesterday to past and current State Department officials in the ongoing investigation and the chairman (Issa,) has sent subpoenas to 10 officials including a spokesman and the number 2 official in the agency.

John McCain & Lyndsey Graham and others KNOW there is some damaging goods on this administration in it's handling of Benghazi or they wouldn't be holding onto it with their teeth but it could be weeks or more likely months before it's completed.
I think it will be worth the wait.

It took woodward and bernstein two years of hard digging to finally bring the truth out with watergate. But the will to get the truth has to be there. These days, too many either forget the issue, or lose interest, or just plain give up.

Eric said he never did such a thing...

I note that few that talk or confess to care about the homeless problem ever seem proud that Bachman was once homeless and didn't stay that way. Politics aside she did quite good.
