Watch the above video of Michele Bachmann dancing, and tell me you’re not thinking “romance.”
Author Tréy Sager was so stirred by Bachmann (R-MN) — the congresswoman who was briefly a frontrunner for the 2012 GOP nomination for president, then barely won her own seat — that he wrote the romance novel Fires of Siberia.
Of course, the idea that Bachmann could be transported to Siberia and lured into a sadomasochistic relationship is a lot less far-fetched than the “ex-gay therapy” performed at the Bachmanns’ counseling centers.
You can watch Sager try to explain to The Huffington Post what inspired him to answer the question, “What do you get if you combine Michele Bachmann and Fifty Shades of Grey?”
