Today, Bachmann's campaign is paying for a promoted tweet linked to a new ad alleging that Graves is a "D.C. robot that won't work for us."

Here's a transcript of the ad, followed by the footage:
Narrator: Why are the big spenders in Washington supporting Jim Graves? Because he's programmed just like they are. Graves supports Obamacare, the failed trillion-dollar stimulus, and the $700 billion Wall Street bailout -- just like all the other big spenders. [Cue images of Nancy Pelosi and Obama]

If we put Big Spendin' Jim Graves in Congress, he'll just keep listening to Washington's liberal leaders, following their commands. Big Spendin' Jim Graves -- another D.C. robot that won't work for us.

Michele Bachmann: I'm Michele Bachmann and I approve this message.

Graves, for his part, insists he's a flesh-and-blood job creator:

I love robots of any kind and he has my vote!


Since Michele Bachmann said it, my first thought was, "Okay, is this a metaphor?  Or does she really think that Jim Graves is an actual robot?"


You can never be sure with her.


The people that are robots are the ones who keep voting for this self serving, bigot bachmann!


@citypages isn't funny when a candidate is not smart and has nothing to really run on, She ends up making childish claims and commercials
