Bachmannistan: The 5 craziest revelations in the new Michele Bachmann tell-all

Long rumored in political circles, the insider expose on Michele Bachmann has finally become available as an e-book called Bachmannistan.

"The explosive first tell all book about the secretive world of Michele Bachmann and her political machinations that led to her dramatic retirement from Congress this year," the text promises. "A behind-the-lines look into Bachmannistan where immoral, illegal and unethical behavior was either condoned or ignored."

The book is available for purchase for $2.99, and it's a breezy read if you don't mind Republican score-settling sprinkled with occasional jabs at Rachel Maddow and Hillary Clinton.

The best parts are about Michele and Marcus. Here are the five craziest revelations.

5. Michele Bachmann once fired someone on Christmas Eve

False information... Check the FEC reports, Patton Boggs was on retainer for $3,000/month... Not $20k.

@mingtran For the first (and probably only) time, I actually agree with you. This book doesn't exactly smack of credentials.

@Onan I wasn't speaking on behalf of her Presidential run. I didn't see anywhere in this article that stated it was about her Presidential run. In that case it's right, she did have Patton Boggs on retainer for $20k month. Who cares? I was talking about her Congressional race, where she had Patton Boggs on retainer long before she ever even thought of running for President.... For $3,000/ month. I can post links too-

@Run26 @Onan  - Nor would I.

"You are so smart. Thank you for your intellect!"

I was just pointing out that perhaps you forgot how to use an internet browser to search for items pertinent to a particular subject. If that makes you feel 
intellectually inferior, I apologize.

PS I would never waste my time reading this book.

@Run26 @Onan - The book itself is about her failed Presidential run. It took one click to discover that was the focus of this book.
