    Obama's migraines.  Are you kidding me?  He got the press colonoscopy the day the rumors started about him running for president.

    Come on.

      The question wasn't WHETHER Obama has migraines--the question was if we'd be calling for his impeachment IF HE DID.

      I suspect nobody here, including you, would.

      Apparently we are fine with double standards, as long as they impact people we don't like.

      Sad to see us sink so low. But then, our partisan crazies have always been just as frothing-at-the-mouth as their partisan crazies. Same bird, different feathers.

        comparing a democrat's press scrutiny with a republican's press scrutiny is like apples and oranges.

        That Bachmann is getting this kind of scrutiny is a good thing, in my opinion.

          It's a double-standard, and you can't defend it.  And redirecting everyone to "the press likes them but not us boo hoo hoo" doesn't help you any.

          If Bachmann should be disqualified because of migraines, why shouldn't Pelosi or Reid or Obama be too?

          Your answer: (sound of crickets chirping)  LOOK OVER THERE !!!!!!

          We're supposed to be better than they are.
