1. If I were a woman I’d be getting pretty pissed by now. The impression I’m seeing in the media is that all female politicians are batshit crazy and/or clueless about history. I’m sure there are levelheaded women in politics, but the only one (and only other major female politician) I can think of is Hillary Clinton. Soon enough, any woman wanting to move forward in politics will be dismissed by many, merely because, “oh, she’s a woman… pass.”

    Come to think of it, I’m a man, and I am getting pissed because this bias will eventually cost us some worthy politicians. These 2nd rate nutcases need to go away.

    1. OK, I’m a woman and my first thought was far from how this was going to reflect on all females. Thirty years ago, yes, I would have thought that. Bachmann’s thought process seems to reflect on her ultra-right Tea Party views more so than her sex.

      At least, I hope so.

  2. Anderson Cooper away from his scripts and teleprompters is no genius either. He really has no place throwing stones here.

    Catch his appearance on Celebrity Jeopardy (in re-runs) sometime and be prepared to see just how dim he really is for far-ranging topics.

    1. Two things.

      1. Anderson Cooper doesn’t promote himself as an expert on the Constitution or much of anything. He’s a journalist. The way he knows a thing is to research it, and then he tells you that thing. Bachmann has shown no aptitude for this, relying instead on bold assertions based on nothing but opinion.

      2. Anderson Cooper isn’t even being considered for federal office. His responsibility to be an expert on the constitution and American history is much less than Bachmann’s.

      And (okay, I lied, three things) a lot of people would be bad at Jeopardy; it hardly means he’s an idiot. I can only imagine that if Michele Bachmann went on that show, she’d be soundly defeated by a kitten and a sack of flour, and immediately blame it on the liberal media and the Democrats.

  3. It really doesn’t matter what Anderson Cooper says on CNN, because Michelle Bachman’s followers only watch Fox News. Clearly, they’re not very concerned about facts anyway.

  4. The cadence of her speaking makes it sound as if she were reading a bedtime story to some wee sprouts. But that is her target demographic.

  5. Michele Bachmann is like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Linda McMahon, they are just not right but funny. I especially like the clip of Bachmann saying that the founding fathers abolished slavery, wow, what a liar, not the first or last time that will happen. Does anyone with self-respect real believe her?

    Her response failed to say how we got here from eight years of poor leadership, two wars without end, diminished Civil liberties. Its like she crawl out from under a rock just to complain about our current President. We all know that Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works started the Tea Party, grasroots, please.
