This sounds like something Politico, Huffington Post, Salon or the Daily Beast would publish; not Daily Caller. I swear some days it seems that's who Tucker Carlson is trying to compete with.

Get used to it, sister, you’re sitting in the Sarah Palin seat.

Actually it looks more like an attempt to inject a suggestion into the public.

Unfortunately some on the right have adopted the left’s manipulation tactics.

Who cares? Obama doesn’t seem to have a brain, and that hasn’t stopped him from being president.

Bachmann isn't my #1 choice, not even my #2 choice; however this is just patently ridiculous! Picking on someone who suffers from migraines? Migraine sufferers aren't qualified to be president, because they get debilitating headaches and takes meds to relieve them? REALLY?

America has had presidents who were drunks, illegal substance abusers ( JFK, to name just one ), while being president, those who were seriously ill ( Wilson's second wife acted as president, while he was far too ill to do much of anything; also just one of a group ), and even a cripple. Of course, they were all men.............

Well, are we surprised? Look what the media did to Sarah Palin AND her family. I still say we need to nominate Sarah. She has been vetted to the max. There are no more lies they can tell. What else can they dig up after digging for 3 years? NOTHING.
If the GOP nominates Sarah Palin, there will be no "October surprise". George W.'s DUI conviction, exposed the last weekend before the 2000 Election, almost gave us Al Gore for President.

Which is precisely 100 times the information we have about the CURRENT President of the United States.

This kind of crap makes me HATE the media!

There is no doubt in my mind that given the choice of Barack Obama or Michelle Bachmann, the American electorate would re-elect Barack Obama.

You forgot Barry’s use of cocaine....and possibly other drugs. (I’ll bet if he can’t get a “drag” every once in a while, he’s just a b*tch!!)
Not to mention his predilection for those of the same sex.

ACORN is still alive and just got more funding from Obama and they aren't the only group who will do whatever it takes to keep the horror in office. That's why we have to do everything we can, to oust him.

I keep saying that it's doable................just NOT "easy" and that no, "your dog can't beat him".

Add to the media mix Bill O'Rasputin who tonight trashed both Bachmann AND the Tea Party in his sly but not too subtle manner.

What's funny is that he regularly dumps all this venom and garbage on Brit Hume during their segments...and it's obvious Brit doesn't agree with all O'Reilly's attacks. Hume doesn't like Michelle, either, but he DOES like the Tea Party.

However, Brit has few choices....pretend to agree with O'R, pretend to half-agree, or go blind.

He generally opts for the 2nd choice.

Where are you seeing Obama 2012 stickers, if I may ask? I was in Minneapolis yesterday and I didn’t see one and that’s saying something.

“I am already seeing Obama 2012 car stickers.”

I live in Sarasota, FL, a city of approx. 100,000 people. I’ve been counting Oh Bummer ‘12 stickers for the past 14 months. I saw one today, a GLBT sticker. So far, in 14 months, that was the ninth sticker. I do believe The Messiah is going to sink in the Ocean he wants to lower; Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish!

I don’t have a problem if she has a treatable medical condition; however I am more concerned that she doesn’t know things like that Lexington and Concord are in Massachusetts, or else why would Paul Revere have been signaling from Boston. Also saying that the founding fathers ended slavery, when actually it happened more than 60 years later, when all the founding fathers were already dead.

Also, questions have been raised about her husband’s education credentials. Is it true that she went and studied law at her husbands orders as a subservient religious wife. This then would make her husband our true president if she were elected. In this case we really need to know more about him.

I’ve had migraines for almost my entire life. If this is a true story and not just the usual hit piece, it’s a concern. But I have huge doubts that this “article” is anything but a nasty smear job.

” I’ve had migraines for almost my entire life. If this is a true story and not just the usual hit piece, it’s a concern. But I have huge doubts that this “article” is anything but a nasty smear job. “ <<<

Anyone dealing with chronic migranes is in real trouble and deserves plenty of sympathy. If this is true it can really hurt her in these dangerous times. The presidency is the last place the people are going to want to deal with a chronic illness if it actually debilitates. I feel sorry for her on that kind of suffering, and if it’s a smear, I hope it is traced and put away. Big concern if the frequency is really and truly once a week? Wow.

I've suffered with the worst of the worst migraines, since I was 6 and back then, there weren't any meds at all, that worked on them.

As I have posted, the fact that she has had five children and is the age she is, either makes this thing a complete smear job, or Bachmann an extreme rarity.

During an extreme attack, migraine sufferers will usually have an "aura" ( light dots or zigzag line, or even blanked out splotches which affect ones vision ) first and then the pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light, sound and smell. When someone talks about a "blinding headache"......that's a migraine!

Lack of sleep, too much sugar and/or some kind of exercise ( walking, running, dancing ) on an empty stomach, in any combination, are known triggers; though some are still unknown.

Cluster headaches are supposed to worse, but people who have those don't get an aura and neither are they light, sound, and smell sensitive.

If Bachmann does get such a headache once a week, at her age, while still on the new meds.........it is a concern; especially for her.

Oh yes, and guess what? Those new “green light bulbs” and any kind of fluorescent light will also trigger a migraine; a very bad one!

Already happened. A staffer quit and she had a nervous breakdown. She ended up in the hospital, and is heavily medicated.

Sounds like she needs an inhouse doctor and pharmacy to deal with the problem discreetly, like, you know, Hussein...?

Daily Caller is on par with Politico, the Huffington Post, Salon and the Daily Beast.

Only more subtle.

Tucker Carlson is a symptom of Fox News drifting to the left.

He was fired from MSNBC for being too much of a poofter, if you can believe that.

His charade as a conservative is just that, a charade.

It makes me laugh every time he puts on his serious face and tries to appear relevant.

The daily caller is his way of undermining conserativism.

Oh I think there will be one, if not a seris of them.

Most likely 100% made up, or 90% made up with the rest based on some shaky "truth."

They won't make the same mistake again---like back with Bush (putting it out too soon and leaving enough time for Free Republic to expose it.)

Our main problem is voter fraud, as with ACORN which was mentioned above.

Plus all the illegal alien insurgent criminal invading colonists that the dems have been paying to vote for them (not to mention their plantation full of welfare voters) and the GOP's lack of desire to stop vote fraud and tighten up security and checking for citizenship at the polls will make it necessary for the need of millions more legitimate votes to ever get an honest election result.

Both Clinton and Obama were voted in by buying votes and other fraud. As was JFK.

Which will all be a big ol’ moot point when Palin declares.

Romney et al are using their resources to marginalize Bachmann as practice for doing the same to Palin.

Oops, Romney has been doing that all along.

Flashing his nice smile all the while having his unscrupulous hit men attack Palin ever since she was picked for the VP slot by the GOP.
