Lawrence O’Donnell: Michele Bachmann’s District Might Be Country’s Dumbest

It’s fair to say that MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell is none too impressed with either Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), nor the people in her district that elected her. During a recent trip to New Hampshire, which many saw as an exploratory mission for her presumptive presidential bid, Bachmann made somewhat of a gaffe, mistakenly noting that the “shout heard ’round the world” had occurred in the Granite State. O’Donnell did not let her constituents off the hook, describing them as possilby “the most ignorant in the country.”

This is not the first time that MSNBC on-air talent has targeted Ms. Bachmann, and it’s likely not the last either. One wonders if there was some sort of memo that went through MSNBC’s offices to lambaste the potential Tea Party candidate for president, or more likely, the hard news coming out of Japan has created a dearth of political opinion fodder, save Bachmann’s New Hampshire gaffe. Nature abhors a vacuum, and to opinion media personalities (and the sites that cover them!)
