The Bachmann file…

Hotdish horror! U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is leaving office, just lost her last chance to win the annual Minnesota “hotdish” contest this week.

Her “Polar Vortex-Mex Hotdish” lost out to a casserole entitled “Turkey Trot Tater Tot Hotdish,” baked by a guy: U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, a Democrat. (The contest was started by U.S. Rep. Al Franken.)
