Last year, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota, grabbed some headlines for a smooch with President Bush on the way out of House chambers after his State of the Union speech.
Apparently, she’s positioned again, according to the blog, Politico. She’s among a handful of “squatters,” who arrive early to get a good seat near the aisle, and a chance to shake the president’s hand, or whatever.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
