Michele Bachmann: I'm 'A Lovable Little Fuzz Ball'

In an interview with the Minnesota Post, Michele Bachmann said she doesn't understand why she inspires so much outrage:

"I don't know. I'm a lovable little fuzz ball! I have no idea what they would have to fear. I guess you would have to ask them; they would have the better answer to your question. I am doing my job. That's what I was elected to do. I don't fear the left, and maybe that's part of the loathing that they feel toward me. I'm not afraid to speak out on conservative positions and on issues.

It could be because she thinks Obama wants to put people in re-education camps, suggested she wants an "armed and dangerous" mob against tax reform, told supporters to "slit our wrists" to defeat health care reform and called for an investigation of "anti-American" members of Congress. But she's "lovable."

The Minnesota City Pages is annoyed that the paper gave Bachmann a free pass.
