Chris Matthews To Michele Bachmann: “Has Someone Hypnotized You?”

Chris Matthews just had a action-packed interview with triumphant congresswoman Michelle Bachmann during which one brave soul brandished a sign making fun of Sarah Palin, and another wandered through the second half of the interview with a big sign asking ‘How’s the tingle Chris?’ complete with the NBC peacock symbol.

Otherwise the interview consisted of Matthews asking Bachmann whether, if the GOP took the House, she would follow through with her promise to use the “subpoena power to investigate the Democratic members of Congress for un-American activities?”

When Bachmann continued to refuse to answer Matthews finally asked her if she was “hypnotized tonight? Has someone hypnotized you? Because no matter what I ask you you give the same answer.”

Responded Bachmann: “I think people are thrilling tonight, I imagine that thrill is maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore, I’m not sure anymore.”

Said Matthews (with a smile, it should be noted): “Yes your sign holder’s already raised that issue.” Watch below. And hear more about Chris Matthew’s thrill (not tingle!) here.

Have a tip we should know?
