Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann said Thursday that she is the "hombre-ette" to represent voters in Washington.
Appearing in Columbia, South Carolina, Bachmann cast herself as "one little fighter."
"We need one strong hombre or hombre-ette, and I'm the hombre-ette to go and stand for you in Washington DC," Bachmann said. Earlier, when Bachmann referenced that she would be a woman in the White House if elected, a cheer went up from the audience.

In the summer of 2011, this is more typical than surprising. For years now, more and more indie musicians have been eager to engage with modern R&B, whether by sampling it, remixing it, singing it, or just claiming it as an influence. Funnily enough, plenty of R&B artists have been coming from the other direction, taking up the cultish style usually associated with indie artists. The acts in between aren’t exactly a genre; every last one of them seems to have a different agenda and a different frame of reference. But there are fans out there, surfing the crosscurrents and drawing lines between things—from bedroom experimentalists like How to Dress Well to quirky soul singers like Solange Knowles and Janelle Monáe.
