“At a debate against Democratic challenger Jim Graves on Tuesday, antigay Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann made the crowd laugh out loud when she said she doesn't partake in political speech. “It's insulting to say that these are political speech,” said Bachmann. “Because that's one thing I do not do, is political speech.” The audience of approximately 400 broke out in uproarious laughter before the congresswoman had finished her sentence, according to the MinnPost. The debate, the first of three Bachmann agreed to in the final 10 days before the election, took place at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.”* Cenk Uygur discusses the story, showing that Bachmann's senate race against Jim Graves might not be as clear cut as everyone thought.
