It is Church Night, Truthseekers, and nothing makes us feel closer to the Lord than the news that one of His Precious Lambs, Michelle Bachmann, is straying from the Congressional fold.

Representative Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican whose status as a leading voice of the Tea Party movement in Congress has faded in the wake of a failed presidential bid and a widening investigation into her campaign spending, said Wednesday that she would not seek re-election.

From The NY Times:

"Mrs. Bachmann, defiant as ever as she insisted that she would have won re-election had she tried, also said the legal inquiries had nothing to do with her decision. She vowed to continue to fight for the principles she said she holds dear -- religious liberty, traditional marriage, family values and opposition to abortion.

"'I fully anticipate the mainstream liberal media to put a detrimental spin on my decision not to seek a fifth term,' she said in a gauzy network-television-quality video posted on her campaign Web site. 'They always seemed to attempt to find a dishonest way to disparage me. But I take being the focus of their attention and disparagement as a true compliment of my public service effectiveness.'"

Awwww, shucks, Shelly. Don't take it that personal! We just like funnin' ya because, well, you're so cute and psychotic an' you oppose gay marriage but it seems you're in one an' all that.

Who is going to screech all that hypocritical BS about Obama's death panels now? Or lament the fact that the war in Iraq (ordained by GOD) is ending just when the bodies count was really adding up? Gonna miss you lots, maybe even more than your dingy doppelganger Sarah Palin.

In an 8-1/2 minute video released on Wednesday, Bachmann says...

"Be assured: My decision was not in any way influenced by any concerns about my being reelected to Congress. ... I have every confidence that if I ran, I would again defeat the individual who I defeated last year, who recently announced he is once again running."
