I Didn't Say What I Didn't Say I Said?

Rep. Michelle Bachmann is still spinning her 'anti-American' statement from last week, now trying 'blame Chris Matthews' on for size, saying that Matthews used the phrase in his question, and she followed suit.

But then she goes for the gold and repeats that Obama's views are somehow dangerous to America or aren't American values.

That darned Chris Matthews put Nancy Pfotenhauer on the spot as well, having the temerity to ask her what the Vice-President's duties are under the Constitution.

Pfotenhauer started with, "I'm not a Constitutional scholar ..." but avoided answering the question - either because she doesn't know, or didn't want to step on the vice-presidential toesies, either Cheney's or Palin's, by giving an answer that implies limits to the veep's magical fourthbranch maverickyness.

And in an interview with People magazine, Sarah Palin tries to hide her know-nothingness behind a claim that she reads a lot. Lots of books, on all sorts of subjects. Including *cue appropriate scary terrorism leitmotif* Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower.

All too reminiscent of George W. Bush's famous 'reading contest' vs. Karl Rove, in which Dubya claimed to have read over 80 books in a single year.
