Someone must have sat down with Michele Bachmann to have a strategy session about the 2012 electoral math and this person is my new favorite person. The conversation had to have gone something like this:

Michele, you know you need 270 right? California has 55 and you can completely forget about them. New York has 29 and you’ve heard the expression when pigs fly?

I wouldn’t hold your breath with Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

Michele, regardless of what the media is saying to stir the pot in efforts to sell newspapers, beating the incumbent Barack Obama is a statistical improbability of the highest order. But remember, math is a deceptive liberal device to keep Christ out of Christmas. I think you should run.
