Adieu, Michele Bachmann

Adieu, Michele Bachmann


Gigantic tears into our eyes now well
As we prepare to say farewell, Michele.
We pliers of the small-joke trade are grieving.
We so regret to hear that you are leaving.
Oh, sure, we often managed to make merry
With gaffes by Sarah Palin or by Perry.
And Cain was grand; with Trump we had a ball.
But you, Michele, were wackiest of all.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply-reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish everyday at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
