Bachmann-Thome Overdrive

Over the past few days a couple of interesting things happened.  In Iowa, Michele Bachmann won the Ames Straw Poll in elegant fashion:

…while in Detroit, Jim Thome hit home run number 600 for his career and ruined Delmon Young’s first game as a Tiger:

What do these two events have in common?  Minnesota.  And the fact that they scare me.  I just hope that Bachmann follows in the Twins’ footsteps and slowly dwindles away.




  1. This is a very simple game...

    Well Bachman scares the hell out of me, that’s for sure. Although that photo of her corndog-ly submission is laugh out loud funny. Thome only scares you becuase you’re a Tigers fan. Our centerfielder scares Thome and prevented him from reaching the 600 mark two homeruns ago…then again your Tigers are doing better in the standings right now so maybe a little fear is healthy.
