John McCain is Michele Bachmann's sugar daddy

McCain is planning a D.C. fundraiser to help Bachmann pay down her million-dollar debt.
Friday, it was revealed that Michele Bachmann is more than $1 million in debt following her ill-fated presidential run.

Bachmann is traditionally a strong fundraiser, but this time around she faces the unique and unenviable challenge of trying to pay down significant debt while raising funds for a U.S. House reelection run.

Thankfully for her, John McCain is apparently willing to play the part of knight in shining armor. Over the weekend, Bachmann staffers announced that McCain will host a fundraising event for Bachmann this week in Washington.

Bachmann predicted strong first-quarter fundraising numbers for her reelection campaign.
That McCain is coming to Bachmann's rescue is a little curious. Just last summer, he dissed her with just about the worst insult one Republican can hurl at another -- discussing her staunch opposition to raising the nation's debt ceiling, he said she was acting "sort of like Senator Obama did" when Barack voted against a debt ceiling increase back in 2006.

But they've apparently buried the hatchet since then. And with the Arizona senator's support, Bachmann is confident that the million-dollar debt won't hamstring her reelection prospects.

"No other member of Congress in the history of the United States Congress has ever raised more money for election" than the $13.5 million she raised in 2010, Bachmann told MPR this weekend. "And I'll do it again this time."

Correction -- An earlier version of this piece didn't properly attribute the quote in the final paragraph to an MPR report. We apologize for the error.

So Bon Jovi is Hillary's knight in acid-wash-jeans armor?  He did a big fundraiser for her failed presidential bid debts.  According to the books Bill Clinton still owes money from his campaign in 1996.  Show disdain for Bachmann is you must, but using the term sugar daddy is just plain gross.

Looks like the man just can't resist lunatic bimbo brunettes.

deep calling to deep - both failed presidential candidates.

What's in it for him?

Would have thought Sara Punkin would be the one to give a hand out.

So Bachmann is looking for another handout.  Why am I not surprised?

Rupar is a sexist pig. Did you call Obama a sugar daddy when he paid hillary clinton's bills as well. Were is Klobuchar and the NOW organization to put you in your place you pig. You are a sexist pig aaron rupar.

Rupar needs to apoligize for using a sexist headline when this is very typical of all politicians for gods sake. Rupar you are a pig. He needs to be fired for sexism.

Mn Voter:  Mr. Rupar keeps on reporting these non-stories about Bachmann because he secretly has a "thing" for her.......;)

She's in immense debt from her own decision to try to do something she couldn't handle, and expects people to just pay it down for her... yet she is against people who are laid off being able to do the same thing with food or medicine.
