Michele Bachmann is BFF's with Joe Wilson
You know the rude heckler everyone hates? Yeah, turns out he's Crazy Michele Bachmann's best friend in Congress. Surprised?
Even fellow Republicans were slowly backing away from Congressman Joe Wilson after he rudely yelled "You lie!" at Barack Obama.
But not Michele Bachmann. No, she took to the pulpit this weekend to proclaim that "Joe Wilson is my friend," that he was the last person she talked to before she left Washington, and that "Joe was right" about Obama.
Dusty Trice has the video, which is sure to bring riches showering on Tarryl Clark, who is running against Bachmann for control of the 6th (as well as to silence Minnesota's biggest congressional embarassment).
