Michele Bachmann and Mrs. Potatohead: Friends forever

Michele Bachmann is known for tilting at windmills. She's launched crusades to protect old-timey light bulbs as well as assailed Michelle Obama for her stance on providing breast pumps to new mothers.

But M-Bach may have just gone into overdrive with her latest quixotic defense of spuds. In a tweet just moments ago, Michele cited the Constitution to defend the right to keep potatoes in school.

High school student Amy Myers has challenged Bachmann to a quiz and debate on the Constitution. Obviously, Michele has boned up and won't be fooled with any of your questions about french fries.

Your move, Ms. Myers. Your move.
