Bill Clinton hurts Michele Bachmann's feelings, and money makes her feel better
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann may put on a brave face everyday, but underneath it all she is a delicate flower. So don't call her stupid. It hurts her feelings.
While former President Bill Clinton was in town stumping for Bachmann's Democratic opponent Tarryl Clark, he was quoted saying that Bachmann is the "ultimate example of putting ideology over evidence," and that "it's pretty stupid."
Bachmann pouted today in an e-mail to supporters, saying, "Bill Clinton took the opportunity to attack me personally by calling me and other Tea Party acitivists 'stupid.'"
Is there anything that can kiss that boo-boo better?
As a matter of fact there is.
Bachmann says she'd feel a whole lot better if her supporters will just "make an emergency contribution of $25 or more."
Apparently, being called stupid now rates as an emergency. "I must have the resources to defend myself," she writes.
And that wasn't enough. She had to plead for even more cash because the first $42,000 she raised in 24 hours wasn't nearly enough. Another $40,000 by midnight might be in order to really help her feel whole again.
Which makes us wonder, if $82,000 makes up for calling somebody "stupid," how much should Barack Obama have banked after Bachmann accused him of "infantilism"?
