"Are you a flake?"

Chris Wallace interviews Michele Bachmann.

Posits the question quoted in the title of this post.

Jim Hoft (who commented it first) calls it, “Awful.”

Ed Morrissey wonders out loud:

We have yet to hear any serious coverage from the national media of Obama’s hundreds of gaffes while in the White House, just as we heard little of his “57 or 58 states” remark and other gaffes on the campaign trail….

I wonder what sort of world it would be like if Barak Obama ever got the same scrutiny as, say, anybody else on the planet.

Question: why do liberals have a problem with Rep. Bachmann suggesting that NATO airstrikes have killed 30k civilians when they spent the entire Bush Administration pissing and moaning about, according to the Lancet, U.S. forces killinf 100k, then 300k, then 1 million, then 1 bajillion Iraqi civilians?

Chris must have been thinking: "What would they ask her if she were giving an interview on MSNBC?" A little too fair and balanced.

You know, I think he had already published his apology by the time this was published. Checking timestamps, that is not the case, but by the time many of us saw this story, the apology has been out there See Fox News

Michelle Malkin has the whole story up on her site, maybe linking over would be best.

Or is this another ironical post a la Jay Tea?

I dunno, I think that's a valid question to ask ANY politician. And if she can't handle THAT question, methinks her steel spine needs more tempering.

Art W:

From "the top 10 stupidest things uttered by Michelle Bachmann" (a work in progress):

(1) BACHMANN WARNED ‘THE LION KING’ WAS GAY PROPAGANDA: At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmann said the “normalization” of homosexuality would lead to “desensitization”: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”

Although she'll fit right into the fringe corners of the world populated by Wizbangers -- yes, she's a flake.

Having flakes recognize that fact -- not so easy.

Jim Crane:

Bachmann seemed surprised, and maybe a little hurt, and no doubt thought she was in friendly territory. I do think that conservative women are getting mostly bad treatment.

Art, if you are trying to raise awareness and normalize the perception held by the majority of a minority group, that is exactly how you do it. You hold up examples of laudable achievements then point out that the minority in question is responsible.
It's why millions of white kids learned about George Washington Carver in the 70s.

On second thought, I do believe Chris Wallace goofed yesterday. In 2011 the proper question to ask ALL of the candidates is, "Exactly what KIND of flake are you?"

"Shocking that you weren't so offended when Obama was asked, "Are you a socialist?"

The truth seldom ever is shocking accept to family, friends and the offender. The public at large already have these louts pegged from day one.
