Is Michele Bachmann smarter than a high school sophomore?

Let Amy debate! Let Amy debate!
Michele Bachmann is famously reluctant to put herself in positions where she might have to talk to someone who disagrees with her.

But Jesus God do we hope she makes an exception in this instance.

Amy Myers, a high school sophomore from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging the Minnesota Representative to a debate and public test on the constitution, U.S. history, and civics.

Myers says Bachmann's frequent errors, misstatements and distortions aren't just bad for civic discourse -- they're bad for women.

"Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole," Myers writes.

So to show that Bachmann isn't a great representative of her gender's intellectual capacity, Myers proposes a battle of wits.

This seems like a terrific idea. The public interest is there. Box office and pay-per-view revenue would be enormous. Some enterprising promoter needs to start putting this together STAT.
