Bachmann's anti-American fears instigate more than $400k in contributions to her opponent

From The Crypt at Politico:

It’s unlikely that the American media will produce the “penetrating exposé” into whether members of Congress are “pro-America or anti-America” that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) called for Friday, but there has been at least one consequence she may not have expected: Her congressional opponent, Democrat El Tinklenberg, has been showered with cash from all parts of the country — America, that is — as apparently insulted Americans respond to Bachmann’s request.

“I can absolutely confirm that we have had in the last 24 hours donations from hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country,” said Tinklenberg campaign manager Anna Richey. “It’s coming in so fast I can’t get a hold on it and can’t give a precise number. It’s still coming in.” At minimum, she said, $150,000 has so far been donated and she expects the total, which the campaign will release later today, to be far higher.

Update: $438,346.57. That’s how much El Tinklenberg says has flooded in so far. He’s aiming for half a million.

  2. I love it when the nutbars self-destruct. And Tweety just let her hang herself. Beautiful. Hey, by the way did you see the 100,000 in St. Louis for Obama today? Jaw dropping photo over at Huffpo. Could Grandpa McGrumpy even hope to draw anything like that?
