WATCH: Countdown to Iowa with Michele Bachmann (Cartoon)

| Tue Apr. 12, 2011 2:01 AM EDT

Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, Saunders takes on Michele Bachmann as she prepares to enter the Iowa caucuses. All of Bachmann’s quotes in the cartoon are actual statements by her, except for mixing up Iowa and Idaho. So far she’s confined her geographical gaffes to New Hampshire and Massachusetts. As always, that's Saunders doing all the voices. —The Editors
