Comedian Stephen Colbert this week paid tribute Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., who on May 29 announced she would not run for a fifth term.

"Yes, it's true, the Congresswoman who represents Minnesota's Valley of the Dolls. She broke the news in a web video recorded at I believe the Sears portrait studio..." the satirist said, introducing a clip from Bachmann's announcement video.
