Michele Bachmann: People want to see me 'mud-wrestling' with Sarah Palin
Politico ^ | June 29, 2011 | JAMES HOHMANN

Posted on 06/29/2011 10:41:50 AM PDT by Second Amendment First

CHARLESTON, S.C.—Michele Bachmann downplayed tensions with Sarah Palin here Wednesday morning.

“They want to see two girls come together and have a mud wrestling fight,” the Minnesota congresswoman said. “And I’m not going to give it to ‘em.”

The first question at a morning rally came from a woman who wanted to know if media reports of divisions between the two tea party darlings are true.

She said she has “great respect” for Palin.

“This race is wide open,” Bachmann told the crowd of more than 200. “We can accommodate all the candidates who want to come in. We’re going to stick together, and we’re going to see this thing through.”

Clearly Bachmann has read one of the pedophile teacher threads here.

For a lot of freepers, one’s actions (good or bad) and agenda take a back seat to hotness.

Mud fights play right into the media and leftist thinking. Leftist thinking is you only need one black, women and hispanic running for President. All else crowd the field because, since people really can't think and only vote based on race and sex, please only one candidate per minority.

Unfortunately, this leftist mentality seems to be prevalent on the FR site.

Michelle is correct. Men are men (sigh) and no matter how serious the conservative man might be, in the back of his mind, he wouldn’t mind seeing two really beautiful women, like Michelle and Sarah, mud wrestling. The metrosexual lefty men would probably rather see more photos of Anthony Weiner.

Well, seriously now... do the progressives actually have "darlings?" "Bovines" would be more appropriate.

That is entirely hypothetical. You can't name two progressive politicians that even lefties would want to see mud wrestle. OK, let me amend that, you can't name to female progressives that lefties would want to see mud wrestle.

We'll never know, since they can't come up with two attractive female progressive politicians. :-)

One thing you will discover about Michele Bachmann (if you haven't already) is that she is far more gaffe-prone than Sarah Palin. Bachmann’s gaffes are self-induced rather than something Tina Fey says on TV or the Paul Revere statement, which many historians say was correct.

How did rumors of a Bachmann-Palin feud start again? Oh yes, Michele's campaign manager, Ed Rollins.

Partial quote from Waterloo...

Outside a sun-splashed historic mansion in Waterloo, Bachmann told a crowd of more than 100 family members, friends, supporters and others that she is waging her campaign “not for vanity,

Now this. I think she has some self perception issues.

crowd of more than 200

Mrs. Palin would draw ten times that if she announced she was going outside her house to water and weed the garden.

Of course, 200 of that number would be press waiting to report that she cut back the roses in a savage and sadistic manner.

I used to think “Man, I wish we had some serious candidates.” Then I realized the serious candidates would never poll out of single digits. There’s a reason that arguably the greatest President of the last 100 years was a story telling actor. Thirty years later it’s who’s the most likable reality TV character.
