Take me to your leader

The really fun thing I learned from Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann's appearance on "Hardball" wasn't her endorsement of neo-McCarthyist show trials--that's boilerplate winger rhetoric by now--but that her opponent in the upcoming congressional election is named Elwyn Tinklenberg. I had no idea Elves were eligible for public office.  I'm not sure if we ought to support this or not.  Given the rate of re-electing incumbents, he could be in Washington for a looooong time.
