A presidential candidate is hoping comparisons to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow can resurrect her campaign.In a new TV spot, U.S. Rep.

Michele Bachmann portrays herself and Tebow as victims of the “establishment” because they are both out-spoken Christians.

A voiceover says, “The establishment sports guys just love to hate Tim Tebow. He’s not smart enough, his mechanics are no good, he’s not accurate enough. Still he just keeps winning . . . He has no baggage and, oh yeah, he’s a born-again Christian. Well, the same could be said of Michele Bachmann. No baggage, Christian and, like Tebow, she just keeps fighting and she just keeps winning votes.”

This comes less than a month after Gov.

Rick Perry compared himself to Tebow when he said, “[Tebow] won two national championships and that looked pretty good. We were the national champions in job creation back in Texas . . . Let me tell you, I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses.”
