After I finally forced myself to quit gawking at her legs, I was happy to see Michele did an outstanding job in her appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” She handled the questions like she always does, showing that she is at least ten percent smarter than the person asking them.
“If you become president — and you seem pretty strident in your views…,” Jay Leno said, before Bachmann interrupted him.
“Convicted. I’m convicted,” she said.
“Convicted?” Leno replied. “No, you don’t get convicted until after you’re in office. That’s later. You have to get elected first.”
Jay asked Michele about the debate when she nailed Perry for trying to make pre-teen girls receive controversial inoculations against a disease that could could cause cervical cancer.
“I wasn’t speaking as a doctor,” Bachmann said. “I wasn’t speaking as a scientist. I was just relating what this woman said. She came up and — I wasn’t soliciting that information, she gave it to me. But the bigger issue in all this was the abuse of executive privilege and also just the connection of crony capitalism if you have a political donor that is giving to you and an action is taken by a government official that could potentially benefit that donor, that’s really the issue right now. That’s what people are worried about.”
