"When your captain's crazy, it's time to find a new ship."

Bachmann aide quits

An aide to Rep. Michele Bachmann quit her communications position, Politico reported on Wednesday. Michelle Marston had been responsible for helping Bachmann get a copious amount of air time on cable news shows.

“I’m just not talking about it, and frankly I don’t think there’s a story here,” Marston told Politico in an email. “Now, the thousands of people calling our office to tell us coming to Capitol Hill tomorrow – that’s a story.”

Bachmann is hosting a “House Call” and urging Tea Party activists to storm the Capitol on Thursday to oppose health care reform.

Politico spoke with an anonymous conservative Republican House member who said, “When your captain’s crazy, it’s time to find a new ship.”

Bachmann’s office has seen a fair amount of turnover since she arrived in Congress in 2006, losing more than a dozen in her first two years.
