Round Two

Bachmann, Chris Matthews Feud On Air

Chris Matthews and Michele Bachmann feuded on air on Tuesday night, with Matthews asking the congresswoman from Minnesota, “Has someone hypnotized you? Because no matter what I ask you, you give the same answer.” He was trying to get Bachmann to follow up on statements she made on his show a few years ago, when she said she’d like the media to investigate Democrats in the House for un-American activities. Bachmann may have gotten the best of Matthews, however, when she told him, “I think people are thrilling tonight, I imagine that thrill is maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore, I’m not sure anymore.” She was referring to the time in 2008 when, after an Obama speech, Matthews said, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.”
