I was initially incensed that Bachmann was being dissed in favor of someone that the Republican leadership must think they can control.
But I just saw Noem interviewed by Stuart Varney, and Kristi kicks ass. I love Michelle, but the Left hates her (Go, Michelle! great enemies!). They’re going to dismiss what she says out of hand.
Kristi was principled, poised, low-key and appeared unable to rise to the bait, and Varney did dangle a lot of raw meat.
Bachmann’s virtues make her a lightning rod. People who don’t agree with her have no problem finding reason to hate her because Bachmann doesn’t step away from a fight. God, I love her.
But Kristi’s got game.
