Meghan McCain: Michele Bachmann is a “poor man’s Sarah Palin”

Pin it

Michelle Bachmann

There's an old Arab proverb that says "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." In that sense, I actually kind of like Meghan McCain. She broke with her dad on gay rights, she writes for the Huffington Post, and seems pretty clever. Plus, she's a vehement critic of the Tea Party. 

Check out this video last night, where she chews out Michele Bachmann — and CNN for airing her speech — calling her a "poor man's Sarah Palin" who couldn't even look into the camera correctly. It's a refreshing invective against infighting — both within the Republican Party and within our toxic political culture at large — and worth a watch. 

For more humorous Michele Bachmann commentary, here's Jon Stewart mocking her inability to look into the camera.
