The Miracle That Never Happened: Michele Bachmann's Failed Presidential Bid

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was always a long shot in the Republican bid for the presidency, but the candidate never gave up hope.

Indeed, she predicted a miracle, one that would bring huge numbers of Iowa Republicans to her cause. 

All that ended last night. Bachmann finished a weak sixth in a field of weak candidates, including the hapless Rick Perry and the ethically challenged Newt Gingrich. 

Today, Bachmann abandoned the race.

This is the same candidate who had God on her side—or so she claimed. A graduate of ORU's now-closed law school in Tulsa, Bachmann was the darling of some on the Christian right. As the Tulsa World noted last week week, a group of ORU students went to Iowa to work on Bachmann's campaign.

Alas, no miracle materialized for Michelle Bachmann. But have no fear, Bachmann fans: It's clear that the good Congresswoman will keep spouting bad ideas and conspiracy theories for the foreseeable future.

God had so many swell choices, he must have been like a kid in a candy shop.
