I think the opposite. I think she makes her real buck knowing that she drives liberals up the wall with her insane ********. Controversy sells. Although personally I don't think that convincing the world you're an idiot is a very good job, but eh, she's making her buck.

Pays well, and it appears to be a rather large market with no sign of saturation to this point. (Beck, Coulter, Jones, etc).

And I have no doubts what so ever that she believes every word she writes or speaks.
Completely agreed. Fortunately Coulter only writes for the masses...unlike Bachmann that can actually influence law.

I think there is some truth to this. I've heard stories that she's actually told people she doesn't believe half of what she says, and someone did once flat out ask her on a TV show if she was just an act, and it was almost a "Toto just pulled back the curtain" moment because she appeared speechless, then just plowed ahead with whatever she was talking about.

It's frightening that this woman (and other pols like her) are making decisions for the country.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that Bachmann is one of the least effective House members, so it might indeed be more apt to compare her to Glenn Beck et al., as it appears she causes more damage through her public statements than her achievements as a legislator.

Don't worry, one more year til the ***** is gone. She's at least smart enough to not seek re-election.

She openly admitted once she does little for her district.

She's also now under investigation for campaign fraud. Of course, she's a Republican, which practically ensures she will never be punished.
