So Michele Bachmann (R–Crazytown) gave a speech at CPAC this weekend in which she (a) slammed President Obama over his scandalous mishandling of Benghazi, and (b) slammed him again for his lavish White House lifestyle, including his use of a full-time dog walker. Her entire speech was some serious bullshit, putting the fact checkers at WaPo on serious overtime. In the end, she racked up a full eight Pinnochios.
CNN's Dana Bash trekked over to the Capitol to get a comment, during whichi Bachmann literally ran away. Here's how it went:
Bash: You talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker, which is not true.
Bachmann: The big point of my speech was about Benghazi….[Crosstalk plus some outraged histrionics, while Bachmann coughed up, like a hairball, the word, Benghazi and how everyone should focus on that.]
Bash: But if you want to focus on that, why bring up the other things?
Bachmann, in indignant tones: You want to talk about dog handlers and there's four Americans that were killed?
Bash: But congresswoman, you're the one who brought it up!
It bears reminding that this woman recently ran for President, and was once in the lead.
Anyway, If you have some time, watch this Anderson Cooper takedown
