Michele Bachmann is an extremist who spouts weird conspiracy theories, garbles history and foreign policy, and tells untruths with such conviction that she’s less a liar than a denizen of an alterative reality. She burns through staffers and appears to have a megalomaniacal sense of her own destiny. She built her career by demonizing gay people, and even as she touted her passion for liberty, she planned to use the presidency to intrude on the sex lives of American citizens.

The conventional wisdom is that as a social conservative who was born in the state, Bachmann could well win the Iowa caucuses—though she is likely to falter after that. But the enormous media attention she would attract in the process could make her a wild card, and her gender and sharp tongue virtually guarantee she will stand out in a sea of blandness.
