Bachmann’s “McCarthy” Moment and its Repercussions.

October 21, 2008

I just happened to be watching Chris Matthews’ “Hardball” last week when Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann came on for a good old fashioned orgy of Talking Points.  But something happened along the way, and she veered wildly off track.

“What I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America? I think the American people would love to see an expose like that.”

Well, thanks to that little episode of verbal diarrhea, a congressional race that was long considered a done deal has just gotten a little more interesting.  Her Democratic opponent, Elwyn Tinklenberg, received $800,000 in donations in the days following Bachmann’s comments.  And now the Republican that Bachmann beat in the primaries, Aubrey Immelman, has resurrected his campaign and announced that he will be running as a write-in candidate.

And they say nobody watches MSNBC…
