Bachmann and Anderson Cooper talk Tea Party

Rep. Michele Bachmann spoke with Anderson Cooper Tuesday about her role as founder of the Tea Party Caucus. Cooper quotes an except from MinnPost’s Derek Wallbank where he talks about high-ranking politicians who are joining the movement. “This is not political, it’s about listening to what people have to say to us,” Bachmann said. Bachmann speaks further about how the caucus has been received by Washington and who has supported the idea.

    Another example of Michelle Bachmann focusing on national attention while the 6th District back here in Minnesota basically goes without representation.

    Please! Elect Tarryl Clark in November to replace this Diva and save us further embarrassment.

    Every act of a politician is political. The most interesting aspect of this may be Bachmann’s backpedaling on her relationship to the Tea Party, perhaps in response to Clark’s attacks.
