Jim Graves very nearly defeated Michele Bachmann.

At 4:00 this morning the difference between the two was about a quarter of a percentage point. Apparently she pulled it out. The Strib wrote that Bachmann took 50.59% of the vote to Graves’ 49.41%. After initially saying in the wee hours that a recount was likely, Graves conceded the race around 10:00 this morning.

Hard to fathom, though, considering that Mitchie doesn’t do political speeches.

To paraphrase Bill Maher: for me, it’s a win-win. If it’s Graves, Minnesota wins. If it’s Bachmann, comedy wins.
