Self-described future one-term president Michele Bachmann pushed ahead with her crusade against eyewear/abortion providers. No one has alerted the president that he might accidentally nominate a Democrat to be defense secretary. Citi employee Peter Orszag refused to sell out by working for the man at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.

Whatever the case, Mitt’s settings have officially been switched from “sleep” to “campaign.” Good luck, governor. [HuffPost’s Jon Ward]
