were all Michele Bachmann had said ...
I haven’t had a gaffe.
... it would have been enough, especially coming the day after she claimed a seven-foot tall doctor told her that the IRS had to pre-approve medical treatment under "Obamacare." But that wasn't all she said. She added this:
I haven’t had a gaffe or something that I've done that has caused me to fall in the polls.
Yeah, I guess she just collapsed in the polls by magic. But never fear: When you're in the party of Joe Miller, Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell, there's always hope if you're batshit crazy.
