The hardest part of your afternoon editor adjusting to being your afternoon editor has been spelling Michele Bachmann’s name. Surely it should be “Michelle Bachman,” no? But apparently this is a problem for people who actually work for Michele Bachmann too. When they submitted the Federal Election Commission paperwork for her awesome new Michele PAC last month, they mistakenly spelled it “Michelle PAC” and had to correct it later. Which was no problem, because anti-abortion groups still gave it lots of money right away in spite of the misspelling.
So we all know that Michele PAC (MICHELEPAC?) stands for “Many Individual Conservatives Helping Elect Leaders Everywhere,” but this gives us an opportunity to wonder what the acronym of “Michelle PAC” would be.
