    Why on earth is CNN giving air time to this vile loon?
    Why is it that America's news media feels it has to suspend any intelligent judgment when choosing what politicians are given a soapbox?
    I hate to use it since it is so over-used and inappropriately, but:
    Would CNN have given air time to Adolf Hitler in 1932?

    Sure, sure ms. revolution bachman herself. The one who was already told to cease and desist on any plans of becoming anything but what she is, just a rep from MN.
    If that face got any tighter she won't be able to talk about Pelosi!

    Yawn – more boring news!!! Now I see what Jon Stewart means about the Media... They set the stage to allow the news to move in their favor!!!! It's NOT about real journalism anymore – it's predictions!

    We all should be N2 Moving America Forward with our current leader President Obama!

    Not only is she smart but also annoys liberals. Got to love Bachmann.

    it is not a tea ......., it is a movement, just like the ocean tides: high and then very low, nothing more.

    Michele Bachmann was re-elected but the questions still remains why she has so much support. She did not debate her opponent and spent a good amount of time outside of Minnesota. She made her way by keeping her opponent on the sideline. Her ridiculous charges against Taryn Clark were mean and nasty. Take a look at the statements Bachmann made during the campaign.

    Sooner or later the TEA Party will realize that they need a person with good debating and political skills to get their agenda across. Rep. Bachman's wild ideas will not work. It will be interesting to see how John Boehner will work with Rep. Bachmann.

    20% support from the people for the tea party (as is also proven by Sarah Palins .200 batting on her candidates who got elected), is really not a majority. What this is going to do in the future (after Boehner plows on with the real Republican agenda of obstructionism) is split the Republican party into two...

    ...this is not to say that Republicans will do what Democrats did in 2000 and let their ideology take over when it comes to voting (Ralph Nader), Republican will fall in line and vote for a Republican candidate, but it does mean that even Republicans will hold their noses when they vote for their God chosen candidate...

    Falling in step always beats idealism...are you listening Democrats....
