Michele Bachmann too busy for House votes


Michele OBachmann's got things to do, people to see, hands to shake, naps to take, money to rake in, gaffes to make.

What was that they were saying about then-Senator Obama?

Via Taegan:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) "has missed nearly 40% of votes in the House since she formally launched her presidential campaign," The Hill reports.

Bachmann's absentee rate is significantly higher than the two other House members running for president, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI).

    I think she's a freak, but this is ridiculous. She is serious about running and the other two aren't. Did anyone criticizing her for missing House votes engage in any similar criticism of Obama or Clinton for their Senate attendance records?

    We accuse right wingers of making silly arguments and blowing trivia out of proportion, and then you come out with this kind of stuff?
