Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann jumped on the Tim Tebow bandwagon and is being compared to the Denver Broncos quarterback in an ad paid for by a group of her supporters.

In the days leading up to Tuesday's Republican nomination in Iowa, the TV spot portrayed the Minnesota Congresswoman and Tebow as targets of a political and sports "establishment" which "love to hate" their strong Christian views.

Last time I looked, she was the establishment.

The ad even takes an indirect pot-shot at Detroit Lions star Ndamukong Suh for stomping on the head of a Green Bay Packers player during a nationally-televised game on Thanksgiving.

The Tea Party ad also says Tebow "just keeps winning" even after the Denver Broncos had a three-game losing streak and backed into the playoffs.


The ad mixes photos of Tebow looking at the heavens with "40:31" (Isaiah: Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength) written on his eye black inter cut with a smiling Bachmann.

A narrator says the "establishment" hate the out-spoken Bachmann and Tebow because they make the "experts" feel sinful and then takes a minute to throw the unnamed Suh under the bus:

"Maybe they're so invested in his failure because he makes them all feel guilty.  He doesn't drink, smoke, cuss or even kick his opponents when they're on the ground.  He has no baggage and, oh yeah, he's a Born-again Christian."

While the Tea Party may be looking at the religious quarterback for support, they might want to give Tebowing a second look.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry previously compared himself to Tebow and his campaign has been third-and-long since.

Right now, the Broncos are 80-1 longshots to win the Super Bowl.

Just like Tebow's passes, the ad isn't very accurate.
