Comedian Kathy Griffin shares this delightful story of what she said to Michele Bachmann while sharing an escalator. When Griffin first asked Bachmann if she would support her efforts to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and Bachmann declined, Griffin asked her a more pointed question when one of Bachmann's staffers pulled out a flipcam to record the moment.

KATHY GRIFFIN: "Congresswoman Bachmann, were you born a bigot or did you, like, grow into it?"

REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: "That's a good question. I'm gonna have to get back to ya."

Expect more of those type of responses from Bachmann on the campaign trail to questions she doesn't like.
