Was the debate de-Bachmann'd?

TPM is reporting that Michele Bachmann was not too happy about an email that CBS political director John Dickerson-- oops!-- accidentally CC'd her communications director, which said that, because her poll numbers are so bad, the moderators probably wouldn't ask Bachmann many questions in last night's Teabate.

Oof!

Which is worse, the poor standing or the snub?

The debate sponsor, SCGOP, responded with (in part) this:

 "The SCGOP had no input on how questions were developed or to whom..."

CNN has more:

Bachmann's campaign manager Keith Nahigian stormed through the spin room, where he said, "John Dickerson should be fired. He is a piece of shit. He is a fraud and he should be fired."

But in a statement obtained by CNN, the news network described the email chain as a "candid exchange."

Bachmann is calling it media bias:

Asked about claims of bias, debate moderator and CBS "Evening News" host Scott Pelley said he didn't know about the chain but that he and co-host Major Garrett of National Journal tried to be fair with time to all the candidates.

You think that's media bias? Here's your media bias.

    Aww. And she'd just bought a new pair of clown shoes and a really cool rubber nose, just for this 'debate'.
