Well, it's a novel approach, I suppose, especially when you are such a woman-killer as Marcus Bachmann. Or maybe it's his outfits that drive women crazy.

Today he was wearing a ribbed, pale green top, capped by a dark blazer. When he gets to be First Man, I can confidently predict the fashion world will explode in Washington like nothing since Nancy Reagan.
