Herman Cain stole the thunder from Michele Bachmann as the far-right, Anti-Mitt Romney, tea party fave in the Republican presidential primary. With lagging poll numbers, she's now hitting the pavement in Iowa in an attempt to regain her mojo with GOP voters. Yesterday, she even held a teleconference town hall with The Donald, desperately seeking donations and attention.
Bachmann has been firing back at naysayers — including Ed Rollins, her former campaign manager and tonight's guest on The Last Word. The Congresswoman expressed disappointment at his comments saying she's not ready to go the distance all the way to the White House.
"When it comes to personnel issues, I act professionally and respectful of former employees. I just assume that's a two-way street. It's disappointing when it's not," Bachmann told a reporter over the weekend. "I guess I should have done that Google search." A coy response to what the The New York Times described as Rollins' "history of speaking sharply about candidates who once employed him."
Rollins shot back, "Well, if I would have Googled her, I would have found out she had six chiefs of staff in five years." Snap!
Though these days, isn't that the first thing you do when you either hire or work for someone? This is the 2011 job market, baby. And clean up those questionable pics on Facebook while you're at it.
After bailing from the job in September, Rollins practically declared her campaign dead due to lack of funds — unless "she somehow for some reason could win Iowa than she could get another look."
At least no one Googled "Santorum."
