Bachmann Tingle Overdrive

Michelle Bachmann stays on message when the always divisive Chris Matthews tries to make the election about scary Republicans and their subpoena power. She gets him on his tingly leg.

Chris Matthews and Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann engaged in a feisty sparring contest on MSNBC, with Matthews getting so frustrated with Bachmann that he asked her is she was "hypnotized," and Bachmann's supporters holding up signs mocking the MSNBC host.

"Will you use the subpoena power to investigate the Democratic members of Congress for un-Americanism?"

Bachmann dodged the question, saying instead that she wanted to reduce taxes and federal spending. "That's Job One for the United States Congress," she said.
