Michele Bachmann has ended her race for the presidency.

After finishing a distant sixth with 5% of the vote in Tuesday’s Iowa caucus, the Congresswoman from Minnesota said today that she would give up the campaign.

“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside.”

Her campaign “cratered like a rock tossed off a New Hampshire cliff,” says the Christian Science Monitor.  Michele Bachmann had “no viable way forward,” says the National Journal.

Bachmann did, however, continue to accuse President Barack Obama of an “agenda of socialism” with no proof that he has any such agenda. But you don’t have to be a candidate to make that claim.
