The Day After

Saw Bachmann on a couple of the Sunday morning interview shows.  Dr. Schramm pointed out to me her interview with David Gregory on NBC.  She was terrific (and I say this as someone who is not a supporter.)  Gregory thought he was dealing with a crude dummy and she made him look like a liberal and partisan, out of touch elitist.  She couldn't have asked for a better foil.  She knows exactly what to say to obscure the consequences of not increasing the debt ceiling and having to balance the budget in one year with no tax increases (and cutting taxes on top of that!), without cutting Social Security spending or funding for Afghanistan.  That is good for her but bad for the country.  She was also good (though not quite as good) on the tougher and smarter FOX Sunday morning program.
