(Newser) – Marcus Bachmann is "the best campaigner" in the family, wife Michele said in a speech thanking supporters after the Iowa caucuses, but he wasn't exactly campaigning while the rest of the team was out stirring up support on Main Street in Des Moines. No, "he was out buying doggie sunglasses for our dog, Boomer," Michele Bachmann revealed for no apparent reason. New York notes Marcus Bachmann's classic reaction to the revelation, which you can watch in the video at left. But more such moments may or may not be coming your way: Michele Bachmann said she would stay in the race despite a less-than-impressive finish in the caucuses, but this morning canceled a trip to South Carolina and scheduled a press conference for 11 EST.
