Michele Bachmann Refuses Chris Wallace’s Apology For “Flake” Question
Way to stay classy:
Via POLITICO’s Jennifer Epstein, Michele Bachmann isn’t accepting an apology from Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace for asking her yesterday, “Are you a flake?”
ABC News’ Jon Karl, who’s been getting face-time with Bachmann in Waterloo in advance of her formal campaign announcement, played a clip of the web video in which Wallace said, “I messed up. I’m sorry.”
When Karl asked if she accepts the apology, Bachmann brushed aside the question this way: “I think that it’s insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious.”
Trying the question again, Bachmann replied, “Those are the small issues. I’m focused on the big ones.”
Of course, it makes sense because playing the perpetual victim is something that works well for a politician like Bachmann.
therby proving that she is indeed…A FLAKE
“Of course, it makes sense because playing the perpetual victim is something that works well for a politician like Bachmann.”
I think you meant to say “Obama” there at the end.
I knew it. All staged and scripted, from question to response.
Viva la propaganda!
Falze plays the always effective “I know you are, but what am I?” defense. And the crowd roars.
I don’t think she plays a victim; she’s convinced she is a victim. The whole Left Behind crowd perpetually sits on the edge of its chair waiting for the godless ones to begin their purge. I think it’s fairly obvious she has psychotic tendencies.
“…playing the perpetual victim…”
Palin is going to be upset Bachmann is stealing from her playbook…which of course would allow Palin to play another victim card. It’s really a perpetual cycle. This is going to end in a hair-pulling face-scratching cat-fight. Mark my word.
“I think that it’s insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious.”
Just because something is insulting doesn’t make it wrong.
She should demand that Chris Wallace should be fired for this.
My father wasn’t a great fan of apologies. He seemed to think that the apology was more to the benefit of the transgressor, kind of letting him or her off the emotional hook. The transgression and its subsequent discomfort, having been completed, were immutable. Apologies can, like most vices, can become habits.
