Michele Bachmann Guarantees She Won't be the VP

What is the best way to make sure no one will ever want to be affiliated with you in national politics again? Just ask Michele Bachmann, she seems to be full of ideas lately.
Her current "fundraising idea" to tell her supporters that she's going to smoke the Muslim Brotherhood out of the US government might be her worst move yet.
From what I have gathered in various reports (cited below) she sent out fundraising letters that she claims were  “unfortunately being distorted.”
I can't believe I am actually disappointed that I unsubscribed from her email list 6 months ago. 
Now she says, “The intention of the letters was to outline the serious national security concerns I had and ask for answers to questions regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical group’s access to top Obama administration officials.”
In the letters she raised concerns about the State Department’s decision to grant a visa to a member of the Egyptian parliament who, despite his membership in Gamaa Islamiya, a group designated as a foreign terrorist organization, was allowed to attend high-level meetings last month with administration officials. (The State Department is investigating the situation.)
“This is just the latest example of the dangerous national security decisions made by the Obama administration,” she said. “I will not be silent as this administration appeases our enemies instead of telling the truth about the threats our country faces.”
She also claimed that Islamists have infiltrated the highest levels of the federal government.
Result: Lots of angry Congresspeople sending her "shut it, woman!" letters. Even Senator McCain went on CNN to call Bachmann a little ridiculous.
Does Bachmann shut up? Oh no. Instead, she manages to get a couple of other GOPers (I'd really like to know which ones, so that I never support them) to send letters to various agencies demanding investigations of a conspiracy to influence American foreign policy to favor the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes.
Bachmann's foreign policy experience is truly a wonder to behold. Remember a few months ago when she "accidentally" applied for dual citizenship with Switzerland? (I think it was Switzerland. Austria? Sweden? I don't know. One of those countries with a lot of descendants in Minnesota. Doesn't matter now. She supposedly "un-did" it.)
Anyone want to guess how many Muslim members of Congress there are? 
Representative Keith Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat. Yes, her own fellow statesman.
It is as if Bachmann doesn't want to have friends in Congress. Like she actually wants to be ridiculed and called a lunatic.
One thing is for sure, she's not on the VP short list, and she sure ain't in the lineup for Secretary of State either.
