The Week in Politics

American Psychos

This week, escaped lunatic and retiring Congresswoman Michele Bachmann let Marcus out of the closet and let some of her 27 kids out of the basement long enough to pose for this picture:

The photo was then posted on Facebook by Sophia, one of the Bachmann brood, with no other description than “Bachmann Abbey.”

And, indeed, there is a haunting similarity between the picture above and the official cast photo of the hit BBC show, Downton Abbey, a family drama about misguided white rich people and the slaves they tolerate.

Was this a subtle hint that the Bachmanns’ will star in a new surreality TV show? Or was it a cry for help from Sophia? Discuss.
