Chris Wallace asks Michele Bachmann: Are you a flake? [VIDEO]

If you want to be president of the United States, like Michele Bachmann does, voters need to be assured that you've got the necessary brains, common sense, and principles to run the country.

So Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace laid out some of Bachmann's more recent noteworthy gaffes, lies, and inconsistencies for the sake of a little illumination.

For example, Bachmann says she supports states' rights, unless a state passes a law she doesn't like -- such as gay marriage in New York.

WALLACE: You would support a constitutional amendment that would overturn the New York state law?

BACHMANN: Yes, I would. I would.

And Bachmann rails against health care reform because it reallocates a half-trillion dollars from Medicare to a different program. But it's OK to gut a half-trillion from Medicare when her side's doing it.

WALLACE: But you voted for the Paul Ryan House budget, which also takes away almost half a trillion dollars from Medicare.

BACHMANN: Well, what we -- what we need to do is revise and change what we're doing in Washington, D.C.

Look, Wallace finally says,
"The rap on you here in Washington is that you have a history of questionable statements, some would say gaffes, ranging from -- talking about anti-America members of Congress -- on this show -- a couple of months ago, when you suggested that NATO airstrikes had killed up to 30,000 civilians.

Are you a flake?"

Wait a minute, you can almost hear her thinking, I'm on Fox News and they're not supposed to say bad things about Republicans on Fox News. Then she responds:

"Well, I think that would be insulting, to say something like that, because I'm a serious person."

Being asked if she's a flake on national TV, and having to insist that she is a serious person, on the day before her big Iowa debut probably isn't the kind of thing she was hoping for.

Check out more insanity at, and then watch:

UPDATE: Wallace has been forced to issue a video apology, having learned that Fox News viewers don't hold with treating Bachmann with anything more than kid gloves. Watch:

Ahhh, to eat your own....

Where are them phony "women's rights groups".  Figured they would have camped out on Chris Wallace's steps by now.Oh ya, they're phony.They could give a f**k about women in general, just their agenda.

I'm sure if anyone has their finger on the pulse of feminists it would be you kirk.   Since I'm a liberal and deal in things like facts and logic I'd point out that Jezebel is covering this story, its actually all over almost every liberal political site I've been to today so it appears you are nothing but a liar again.  Plus its quite the double standard you put on feminists.  I didn't see any right wing Christians defending Obama when Republican assholes constantly question his faith.   In fact its the right wing "Christians" who love to push the lie that Obama is a secret Muslim or wasn't born in this country.   I'm sure that makes Jesus smile.   Bradlee Dean and the rest of the right wing bigots really understand that whole endless love of Jesus Christ thing.

So let me clue you in people as to the deceiver phony MB is.Just looked at the site "jezebel" as phony MB statedFrom their sit,e under the headline - Keeping Up With Michele Bachmann"the Minnesota Congresswoman, lest we forget that, at her core, she's really, really, really out there, ideas-wise."So where are they praising her for her "strong female presence" phony MB?Like I said before - They could give a f**k about women in general, just their agenda.

Yes MB and saying things like - "Since I'm a liberal and deal in things like facts and logic"What "logic"?What "facts"?All I see is arrogance. Get over yourself!Saying things like - "Since I'm a liberal and deal in things like facts and logic" show that, you, like many other "liberals", are champions of "stereotyping".  Don't you dolts even champion that as a bumper sticker?Is this the extent of your "logic"?Bumper stickers?

MB, you do nothing but spew empty talking points that can not be backed up by "facts" and "logic".

Here's a bumper sticker for ya MB-

Liberals:Mostly wrong, but still damn pleased with themselves!

kirk once again you prove that conservatives have no limits on how stupid they can be.   That article on Jezebel is pretty critical of Chris Wallace for example "If there's anything I dislike more than Michele Bachmann being a serious political candidate, it's Chris Wallace talking to her like she's a stupid high school cheerleader running for city council. Stupid people have no problem making themselves look stupid without any help."   Your original post said no feminists were going after Chris Wallace for what he said, I proved you wrong.  Notice how I used a fact that can easily be checked and proven true to show that everything you type is a stupid lie?    That's how I deal in facts and logic, you deal in lies and stupidity.   It's all laid out there.  You can't refute it.   It's factual.  You just pulled something out of your ass without thinking, its the Republican way.   I deal in facts and logic, its the Liberal Progressive  way


ok, once agin I translate from the jerkese to something non-jerks can understand. First the jerk belabors the obvious by pointing that bachmann did not really post the above comment. Then he belittles a website, and asks why they are not praising her strong female presence(again it is obvious).He then attempts to engage the writer's sarcasm, missing the fact that it is sarcasm. The jerk then reveals much about himself in the freudian like line"MB, you do nothing but spew empty talking points that can not be backed up by "facts" and "logic"." clearly referring to himself.He then ends with a futile attempt at humor.
