Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who has a weakness for violent rhetoric, suggested on Monday that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would bludgeon some lawmakers to death.

Asked on Fox News Radio how Pelosi would get conservative Blue Dog Democrats to vote for health care reform, Bachmann responded: "She'll either beat them to death, bludgeon them do death ... or she'll try to buy them off."
