Yarmuth Eager to Support Bachmann Presidential Bid—Sort of

Speaking to the Louisville Courier-Journal's editorial board Wednesday, U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., made it clear he's supporting Republican colleague Michelle Bachmann in next year's presidential election.Well, sort of."Strictly from a partisan perspective, I hope she's the nominee of the Republican Party," Yarmuth said. "Because (President) Obama will win 50 states."Ouch! No response from the Bachmann campaign.As a columnist for LEO Weekly, Yarmuth's sarcastic wit has been a staple of his personality long before he ran for Congress in 2006. Rising in the polls, Bachmann might want to think twice before jousting with her congressional colleague.From the Courier-Journal (h/t B&P):Go here for part II of that interview.
