Winstead, on Twitter: "I am supposed to leave MN Today but I may stay and celebrate with my peeps!" 
As you'd expect, Twitter has been blowing up this morning in response to the news that Michele Bachmann won't seek reelection to Congress next year.

Some tweets made erudite observations, like pointing out that Bachmann's retirement might be a net positive for the GOP. But for the purposes of this post, we're only concerned with the LOL-worthy ones. Below the jump we've compiled the 10 rip-roaringest zingers we saw in response to Bachmann's big announcement.

10. 9. 8. 7. 6.

There is something missing, a puzzle piece that will come out sooner or later, as to why she went from running ads for her congressional campaign one week to quitting with a 3 am video the next.

We don't know what it is yet, but it can't be anything good for or about Bachmann.

She must have listened to her advisers because I seriously doubt she is smart enough to make that wise decision on her own.

Wade, I don't think she is done with politics.

The big question is will she refuse her pension and lifetime healthcare entitlements?

"I have gay friends! I just don't think they should get married. It's okay, they don't realty care about marriage equality." Heh.

BTW, Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican as well as Abe Lincoln who freed people from the government control. Would you be interested to know my black grandfather who served in WW2 and married a white woman in the 1940's? No, you wouldn't, because it's TRUTH! Liberals want to bash everything and stick to a truth that never happened. Have fun being liberal, I am going to go put my blindfold back on.

Would it entertain you to know I am mixed with African and Native American? Would you also know, as a righty, I have gay friends? Would you also know that they are Republicans? Gays don't care about marriage as much as the governing system. Global cooling/warming/climate change ... If you choose to lie, stick to it. The lefties are full of attacks, rarely a solution. Again, thank you ;)

I expected some blast back, but you make my point. "FUX"=fucks and you are being insulting. I certainly hope you are joking. I could not have made the point any more clear myself.

"How did the people of the great state of MN elect her if the first place?" By accident, from what I've gathered. Then we just couldn't get rid of her...

Nice slam job. I always hear liberals talk about how kind they are and all that junk. You people are racist, hate mongering, God hating folks who turn around and call everybody else what you are. If you can't stand Obama, you must be a racist. Are you opposed to gay marriage, you must be a homophobe (do you know the definition of a phobia?), and basically everything you stand for gets turned into some kind of hate. From me driving a truck, to me owning a gun, to me not wanting to be FORCED to buy my health insurance from the government. Nothing but hate from the ever so "tolerant" left.

@Chris Peden  You agree that Obama care is all about death panels and is secretly plotting to kill your grandmother?

@Eric Kanzenbach MLK was NOT a republican despite what commonly circulated internet BS says.  As has been pointed out COUNTLESS times the Republican Party of Lincoln's era and today's GOP are so radically different that these days Lincoln (or Reagan for that matter) couldn't get an endorsement to run for dog catcher much less POTUS.  

Your grandfather is lucky to have lived in a state that allowed mixed race marriages.

Funny how you talk about "truth" after posting a flat out falsehood, a disingenuous comparison of ttoday's GOP to the Republican party in the mid to late 1800s and an irrelevant piece of info about your grandfather. 

You apparently have some blindfolds of your own.

@Eric Kanzenbach No one does the persecuted victim quite like a new republican.  Short on information and long on self pity.  At least you guys are good for a chuckle.

@Eric Kanzenbach Are you chanelling Andy Kaufman or do you really believe what you just posted? Either way, it's pretty funny.
