A trio of Minnesota bloggers have their own book out, based on about 6,000 posts about the Republican presidential hopeful culled from their website, Dump Bachmann.

It's certainly no secret where the authors behind "The Madness of Michele Bachmann" stand. Ken Avidor and Eva Young of Minneapolis, and Karl Bremer of Stillwater tell the Pioneer Press their goal is to knock Bachmann out of office, but they also say the book is not partisan; they go after Democrats, too. Bremer challenges anyone who opposes their views to find fault with their facts.

MinnPost also takes a look the three, who found a national audience when the Congresswoman stepped into the presidential race, and the otherwise-unreported nuggets they've dug up dating back to her days as an education activist.
