Answer: Because Michelle Bachmann is a headache for Mitt and the left

Ques­tion: Why on earth are sto­ries about Michelle Bachmann’s migraine headaches front page news and being reported on ABC?

For the daily Caller this is a win, the MSM often fails to pick up their mate­ri­als, but as Stacy McCain noted when “con­ser­v­a­tives” attack repub­li­cans sud­denly a Daily Caller piece becomes desirable.

But why the Daily caller? The ques­tion is answered by who this piece ben­e­fits the most, and that Answer is Mitt Rom­ney and the estab­lish­ment GOP. Let’s go back to March 31st and note Romney’s one big advan­tage in this race.

The estab­lish­ment GOP hates and fears any Palin-​like can­di­date and likes him.

Rom­ney needs to keep the Tea Party vote divided (wel­come aboard Thad­deus McCot­ter). Sarah Palin con­tin­ues to wait, Her­man Cain has lost some con­ser­v­a­tives like Yid with Lid, (my guest this Sat­ur­day 10 a.m. WCRN lis­ten live here).

The worst thing that can hap­pen to him is a can­di­date to break out and the can­di­date he wants least to break out if Michelle Bach­mann. Unfor­tu­nately for Mitt he can’t afford to be seen directly attack­ing either a Palin or a Bach­mann. So sur­ro­gates must be called into play.

So the needs of the left and Bach­mann have con­verged. Rom­ney needs Bach­mann to be Palin­ized. As David French put it on the Cor­ner:

Exactly one week ago, I wrote that Michele Bach­mann should pre­pare for the Sarah Palin treat­ment. As Glenn Stan­ton noted today, the Left is com­ing after her with its cus­tom­ary class, accus­ing her hus­band of being gay. But now anony­mous con­ser­v­a­tives have bared their claws. I sup­pose such betray­als are inevitable in pol­i­tics, but they are still intolerable.

The doctor’s note not with­stand­ing the left is going to run whole hog on this. (Carl Bern­stein was hit­ting her on Morn­ing Joe today, Mika thought the whole argu­ment was sexist)

Unfor­tu­nately for the left her story is even more com­pelling than Palin’s French again:

Michele Bach­mann has a per­sonal story that Hol­ly­wood would love if she were lib­eral. A mother of five took in fos­ter child after fos­ter child, grew alarmed at the poor qual­ity of their manda­tory pub­lic edu­ca­tion, and then launched her­self into the polit­i­cal process to improve their lives. They’d pitch Julia Roberts for the part if Bach­mann had only been cru­sad­ing against a power plant or land devel­op­ment. As it is, she has to set­tle for the Palin treat­ment — from the Left and the Right.

and in the Her­ald:

Nobody would ever ask a man whether they thought of them­selves as a flake,” said Jen­nifer Duffy, senior polit­i­cal edi­tor at Cook Polit­i­cal Report, an inde­pen­dent, non­par­ti­san online newslet­ter. Duffy said that while Bach­mann has not been grilled about her hair, makeup or clothes, Wallace’s ques­tion sug­gested a sex­ist lit­mus test. Bachmann’s response: She’s a mother, a lawyer and a con­gress­woman — and the ques­tion was “insulting.”

Expect an awful lot more of this stuff as long as Bachmann’s num­bers con­tinue to run high, why?

There’s only one rea­son for this sort of thing: Mitt Rom­ney is feel­ing the heat.

and as long as the heat is on so will the pres­sure from any out­let funded by estab­lish­ment money.

Question: Why on earth are stories about Michelle Bachmann’s migraine headaches front page news and being reported on ABC?

For the daily Caller this is a win, the MSM often fails to pick up their materials, but as Stacy McCain noted when “conservatives” attack republicans suddenly a Daily Caller piece becomes desirable.

But why the Daily caller? The question is answered by who this piece benefits the most, and that Answer is Mitt Romney and the establishment GOP. Let’s go back to March 31st and note Romney’s one big advantage in this race.

The establishment GOP hates and fears any Palin-like candidate and likes him.

Romney needs to keep the Tea Party vote divided (welcome aboard Thaddeus McCotter). Sarah Palin continues to wait, Herman Cain has lost some conservatives like Yid with Lid, (my guest this Saturday 10 a.m. WCRN listen live here).

The worst thing that can happen to him is a candidate to break out and the candidate he wants least to break out if Michelle Bachmann. Unfortunately for Mitt he can’t afford to be seen directly attacking either a Palin or a Bachmann. So surrogates must be called into play.

So the needs of the left and Bachmann have converged. Romney needs Bachmann to be Palinized. As David French put it on the Corner:

Exactly one week ago, I wrote that Michele Bachmann should prepare for the Sarah Palin treatment. As Glenn Stanton noted today, the Left is coming after her with its customary class, accusing her husband of being gay. But now anonymous conservatives have bared their claws. I suppose such betrayals are inevitable in politics, but they are still intolerable.

The doctor’s note not withstanding the left is going to run whole hog on this. (Carl Bernstein was hitting her on Morning Joe today, Mika thought the whole argument was sexist)

Unfortunately for the left her story is even more compelling than Palin’s French again:

Michele Bachmann has a personal story that Hollywood would love if she were liberal. A mother of five took in foster child after foster child, grew alarmed at the poor quality of their mandatory public education, and then launched herself into the political process to improve their lives. They’d pitch Julia Roberts for the part if Bachmann had only been crusading against a power plant or land development. As it is, she has to settle for the Palin treatment — from the Left and the Right.

and in the Herald:

“Nobody would ever ask a man whether they thought of themselves as a flake,” said Jennifer Duffy, senior political editor at Cook Political Report, an independent, nonpartisan online newsletter. Duffy said that while Bachmann has not been grilled about her hair, makeup or clothes, Wallace’s question suggested a sexist litmus test. Bachmann’s response: She’s a mother, a lawyer and a congresswoman — and the question was “insulting.”

Expect an awful lot more of this stuff as long as Bachmann’s numbers continue to run high, why?

There’s only one reason for this sort of thing: Mitt Romney is feeling the heat.

and as long as the heat is on so will the pressure from any outlet funded by establishment money.
