Michele Bachmann: 'I Hope' Higher Unemployment Helps My Campaign

Michele Bachmann thinks that today's crummy jobs report is great news...for her her own political ambitions:

CARL QUINTANILLA (CNBC): Does it strike you that as the unemployment rate goes up that your chances of winning office also go up?

MICHELE BACHMANN: Well, that could be. Again, I hope so.

At least you've got to give her credit for being honest. Not many Republicans are willing to publicly admit that they hope sabotaging the economy will help them win in the 2012 elections.
