Minnesota’s 6th is represented by Freedom, and Freedom takes its oath of office today. Michele stands ready to address the concerns of America’s corporate leaders!   The book the liberal media doesn’t want you to see! Which is why you’ve had such a difficult time finding it:   Rep. Bachmann’s totally heterosexual husband Marcus simply cannot keep his paws off her! Get a room, you two!   Michele was truly moved this Christmas when fans from across America sent her…
