A funny thing happened to Michele Bachmann yesterday.

And no, I’m not talking the fact that Occupy Charleston hijacked Mad Michele’s campaign speech aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown.


I’m talking about what she said afterward about those meddlesome kids once she retook the stage:

“It was really ironic that you had a group of young people in what was really a very disrespectful and ignorant move, to take that kind of action in the midst of veterans who have fought to give them the right to do that,” Bachmann said.

Now, here’s the thing: I agree with Michele. The Occupy Charleston kids acted like assholes. She was right to wag her little finger at them.

But the funny thing is she didn’t seem to mind it when South Carolina’s Joe “You Lie” Wilson hijacked President Barack Obama’s healthcare speech to Congress. Nope. Not at all.

In fact, Bachmann praised the disrespectful asshole, proclaiming that he “spoke the truth.” Hell, she even asked the Almighty to bless him.

Apparently, in Michele Bachmann’s world, it’s OK to act like a dick to the president when you’re addressing both Houses of Congress, but don’t you dare do it to her when she’s on the stump.
