Michele Bachmann To O'Reilly: I've Got "Stalkers" At MSNBC! (VIDEO)

On the O'Reilly Factor Wednesday night, Michelle Bachmann dished on one of her favorite subjects: Michelle Bachmann.

O'Reilly noted that Bachmann was "second to Sarah Palin in far left angst," and added, somewhat obscurely, that "they're after you now."

Bachmann nodded and called this "an interesting phenomenon."

"I think it happened with a competing cable network that took an interest in me, and it's only grown," she went on. "Now, it's almost like I have personal stalkers, only they have TV shows, so it's kind of an interesting phenomenon."

Does it bother her that these networks are "making her life difficult?" O'Reilly asked. Not so much, Bachmann said.

O'Reilly went on: "Both you and Sarah Palin are good-looking women ... attractive, young -- relatively young -- women" who "drive the far left crazy."

UPDATE: MSNBC's Keith Olbermann didn't think too much of this exchange, and told TVNewser he thought Bachmann owed an apology to men and women who had been stalked.

"Having had an actual stalker myself, I think the Congresswoman needs to apologize to women (and men) whose lives are blighted and ruined by such terror and threat. Not even in the mildest of senses - of journalists whose aggressiveness might verge colloquially into 'stalking' - is she anywhere close to being such a victim."
