Michele Bachmann answered as follows when Chris Wallace asked her yesterday if she was a flake:
“Well, I think that would be insulting to say something like that because I’m a serious person,” Bachmann said. “[W]hat I would say is that I am 55 years old. I’ve been married 33 years. I’m not only a lawyer, I have a post-doctorate degree in federal tax law from William and Mary. I’ve worked in serious scholarship and in have worked in the Unites States federal tax court.
My husband and I have raised five kids and 23 foster children.
We’ve applied ourselves to education reform. We started a charter school for at-risk kids.
I’ve also been a state senator and a member of United States Congress for five years. I’ve been very active in our business.
As a job creator, I understand job creation. But also I’ve been leading actively the movement in Washington, D.C., with those who are affiliated with fiscal reform.
And you, Chris Wallace, what are you? A jackass.
I see he has made an apology, so good for him. He came off as unprofessional, ungentlemanly, and childish. Maybe too much silly soup.
When reporting this, MSNBC, cut her statement after “federal tax court.”
Chris Wallace is married to Lorraine Smothers, the f0rmer wife of comedian Dick Smothers. She recently published a book entitled Mr. Sunday’s Soups with her soup recipes.
