Michele Bachmann yesterday:
As Iowans begin the process of caucusing tonight, I am confident that our message of consistent conservatism will resound across all of Iowa’s 99 counties. Iowans, this is our chance to take our country back. Let’s get started.
Michele Bachmann today suspending her campaign:
Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside. I have no regrets. None whatsoever. We never compromised our principles. … While a congresswoman by title, a politician I never have been, or will I ever hope to be.
There may be a hint of regret there, seeing as she also noted that:
I didn’t tell you what the polls said you wanted to hear.
Never mind, Michele – at least your little dog got some darling accessories out of the trip. Don’t let the door hit you on the crazy on your way out.
H/t to commenter JGabriel for the “Dog” meme, which will (I suspect) be entertaining us all (and Josh Marshall) for weeks, and to suzanne, who got there first with “Sunglasses on Dog”, damn her.
