Quote of the Day

Matt Taibbi on Michele Bachmann’s ability to misunderstand something innocuous and turn it into a full-blown kerfuffle:

Imagine Joe McCarthy dragging Cabinet members into hearings and demanding that they publicly disavow the works of Groucho Marx, and you get a rough idea of the general style of Bachmannian politics.

It’s like Emily Litella is running for president.

HT to digby.
