Michelle Bachmann Speaks

Just three weeks ago, Minnesota representative Michelle Bachmann was on Hardball telling Chris Matthews that Barack Obama might have “anti-American” views. Despite the ensuing brouhaha—in which Bachmann’s opponent raised over $1 million and launched a spirited challenge for her seat—Bachmann won re-election. She also seems to have had a change of heart. Speaking with Politico, Bachmann says she was “extremely grateful that we have an African-American who has won this year.” She also emphasized her hope that “this will send a national signal across our country that America is not a nation made up of racists.”
