Bachmann Officially Tosses Hat in Ring for 2012

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann announced at tonight's CNN GOP presidential debate that she is filing paperwork tomorrow to officially join the ranks of the Republican presidential candidates, who, at this point comprise former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Ga.; former Sen. Rick Santorum, Penn.; former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Rep. Ron Paul, Tex; and Georgia businessman Herman Cain.

So far, Bachmann is doing better than her colleagues in the debate. She seems to be most adept at the union-bashing, Obama-smacking, and tax-cut loving demanded of the candidates.
