Even The American Spectator has unkind things to say about Bachmann

That’s a conservative publication, remember. After running down the things her detractors say, with snarky comments here and there, the April 12 article actually makes some criticisms of Bachmann herself. First it talks about the high turnover rate in her office. Then:

Still, Bachman’s headline-grabbing stunts, time spent on talk radio and cable, and even labels from staff and peers would be worth it if she could put her money where her mouth gabbed. This is her second term as a U.S. Congresswoman. She has yet to sponsor and pass any effective legislation at all, let alone any related to the issues that put her in the spotlight — though in her defense she’s outnumbered, and to her credit, she has co-sponsored some good bills.

Is the author referring to the bill seeking to stop the phase-out of incandescent lightbulbs? Or her nonbinding resolution saying hydrocephalus is bad? More:

She’s one of Hannity’s favorite conservatives and she knows how to draw a crowd, but a November Rasmussen poll showed Bachmann’s district may not love her as much as everyone else does. Fifty-one percent of likely voters said they somewhat approve of Bachmann’s job performance and 45% disapprove. That could be more due to the fact that the district has been trending left in recent years, as local Democrats have picked up several state seats, rather than Bachmann’s vocal conservatism.

Music to our ears.
