The day the column ran, she sent out a fundraising letter saying that I had savagely attacked her son.

Here’s what I said about her son:

“[He] must be a smart kid, a caring kid. Must have been raised well.”

I guess we had a little miscommunication there.

But it is the simple beauty of her miscommunications, elegantly delivered — in pumps and dancing backward — that I will cherish most when she’s gone.

So happy birthday, Elvis. Hello Waterloo’s most famous son, John Wayne (Gacy). So long, Congress, now raise your hand if you are anti-American because it’s off to the death panels with you.

You be da man, Michael Steele.

No, Michele, you be da man. You be da man.

In the end, Bachmann left us as only she could: looking fab-u-lous in purple satin and a string of pearls in a soft-focus video somehow shot in the 1950s and released just after 2 a.m. as she fled to Russia, where Sarah Palin could no doubt see her from her house. • 612-673-1702
