At the beginning of the week, I read about the little spat that Botox Batshit Bachmann was having with her ex-campaign manager Ed Rollins. Ol’ Ed was a bit critical about her batshittery about the HPV vaccine causing mental retardation, and he remarked that she didn’t really have a snowball’s chance in Hell after the Iowa caucuses. Well, of course, Botox Batshit Bachmann was quite surprised. She would have looked like it, too, but with all the Botox, she is no longer able to raise her eyebrows. When asked about Ol’ Ed’s disloyalty to her and how he had previously dissed other candidates he had worked for, she said, “I guess I should have done that Google search.” She would have furrowed her forehead at that point, but, once again, the Botox. In response, Ol’ Ed said, “Well, if I would have Googled her, I would have found out she had 6 chiefs of staff in 5 years.”
Well, while they were busy regretting not googling each other, there are some new developments in the Botox Batshit Bachmann campaign ranks.
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s entire New Hampshire staff has quit her campaign, another dark omen for the GOP candidate who has lost several senior officials in recent weeks.
Five staffers, including Jeff Chidester, a longtime friend and conservative talk-radio host, have left the Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign.
The departing staff members also included Nicole Yurek, Tom Lukacz, director of operations Matt LeDuc and Southern New Hampshire Field Director Caroline Gigler, as first reported by ABC affiliate WMUR.
Gigler has already found a new job with Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign, according to a report in the National Journal.
The staffers said they quit the campaign because Bachmann had not paid sufficient attention to New Hampshire.
Bachmann has seen a steady decline in her poll numbers since winning the Iowa Straw Poll in August. Many of Bachmann’s top aides have left her campaign in the weeks since the poll.
Among those to leave were campaign manager Ed Rollins, deputy manager David Polyansky and pollster Ed Goeas. Soon after, longtime adviser Andy Parish left the campaign to return to work in Bachmann’s Washington congressional office and spokesman Doug Sachtleben quit.
Bachmann, in an interview with the New York Times, said last week she would focus her efforts on Iowa.
