Sometimes it's just like shooting fish in a barrel with the crazy things that come out of GOP presidential primary contender Michele Bachmann's mouth. From our friends at News Hounds -- Michele Bachmann: I’m Not A Politician:
Michele Bachmann visited The O’Reilly Factor Wednesday night (12/28/11) and made the ridiculous statement that she’s not a politician and never wants to be a politician. Of course, Bachmann is a three-term Congresswoman in the U.S. House of Representatives. Prior to that, she served in the Minnesota state senate for six years. If someone who has served in politics for 12 years and is running for president is not a politician, I don’t know who is. But guest host Eric Bolling made no comment.
Bachmann said, “I think a lot of people are going to be shocked on January 3rd because when people see me, when they hear me, one thing they know about me is that I’m an authentic, real person. I’m not a politician. I never want to be a politician. They’re seeing in me a person who’s very competent, who’s going to do what I say.”
As they noted, O'Reilly fill-in Eric Bolling didn't challenge her and just moved on to the next question on what she needs to do to win or at least improve her standing in the Iowa caucuses next week. O'Reilly's producers really have been scraping the bottom of the Fox barrel this week with Bolling filling in this Wednesday night and his cohort on The Five and Fox's really, really, extremely unwatchable late night show, The Red Eye, Greg Gutfeld filling in the night before.
Note to hack Eric Bolling. If Michele Bachmann doesn't want to be or thinks that she is not a politician, do you think it's worth asking her why she wants to be elected to the highest political office in America? And at least as a footnote, what the hell she thinks she's been doing for the last umpteen years both running for and holding office in the United States Congress and in the Minnesota state government?
