(Newser) – More modern politics: Michele Bachmann sent an email to supporters today with a novel approach to asking for money as she considers a presidential run, notes Politico: "If you want me to continue fighting the Big-Government Obama agenda in the U.S. House of Representatives, please make a generous donation of $25," she writes. "If you want me to seek the presidency, please make a donation of $50 or even $100 to let me know I can count on you." Dave Weigel's blog at Slate has the full email.
