    She'll have a lot more than 15 minutes. Girl's got chutzpah, and she'll likely go much further than Bachmann.

    REALLY? you think she will make it to Congress and become nationally famous

    Somehow I think the odds are against her

    today was great

    I find it silly to worship kids who have done nothing of any real standing just because some people have serious derangement issues over right wing polticians.

    As a history major, I just want Bachmann to be smacked. As a liberal, I want this girl to totally school her.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I was going to say, Turtle (such a perfect name for so very many reasons); do you really believe that if somebody is on the right, they are therefore sheer perfection, and nobody may speak ill of them? Do you know anything about Ms. Bachmann?

    “She makes Sarah Palin look like Count Metternich,” groaned longtime GOP consultant Mike Murphy on Twitter after reading about the Concord confusion.

    that is rather stupid

    I find it amusing that the loony left lionizes some HS kid with a big mouth. I know plenty about Bachman and she isn't going to get my vote in the GOP Primary but the hatred the loony left has for her is hilarious.

    Are you the alleged attorney?

    Why do you insist on believing that anybody who isn't "on your side" either hates or fears everyone who is?

    now if the Headline was "girl who challenged Bachman kidnapped" now that would be newsworthy

    but an insignificant hs kid who already had her 15 minutes of fame?
    I kind of agree with you. Everybody knows Bachmann would not have a chance against the girl so why is this news? I doubt if Bachmann even knows HOW to debate. She probably thinks all she has to do is stand there and pontificate about what she believes without offering any evidence or verifiable support. Even a high school kid knows better than that.

    It's sad that the HS kid with a big mouth possesses more sense than a career politician. Makes one wonder: who is more stupid, the ignorant politicians, or the people who manage to keep voting them into office?
