As could be expected in a clash between two of the most outspoken members of their respective parties -- and Fox anchor Sean Hannity for good measure -- the exchange provided a few sparks, often having nothing to do with the intended topic of discussion.
After Weiner attempted to explain his belief that a large chunk of the current deficit problem came as a function of wars, lost jobs and tax cuts for the rich, Bachmann chimed in.
"I had no idea Rep. Weiner was such a reader of fiction," she said. "He's a huge fiction reader because that's all of his numbers."
Weiner quickly shot back, seemingly making reference to Bachmann's propensity to make misstatements.
"Bachmann, I don't think you want to go there. I don't think you want to go there Bachmann," Weiner said, grinning. "And by the way, for her to make fun of me not knowing fact from fiction is a bit ironic to say the least."
Bachmann and Weiner also butted heads in January, when they shared a panel on "Face the Nation" and argued about the potential for a government shutdown.
