Huge difference. Bachmann can't win a national election. She's unelectable.

I think she is right. Like Reagan and Thatcher, she's a crack pot who interprets historical forces in whatever way suits her current needs.

Congresswoman Bachmann is no Margaret Thatcher, or Ronald Reagan. These player's were of major league caliber, while Ms. Bachmann has a long row to hoe to reach the minor leagues. How foolish to even suggest such a comparison.

This is coming from a Republican: Michele reminds me more of Emily Litella.

Ms. Bachmann, please us tell just how we're in a situation similar to the end of the Cold War, with a completely different economic and fiscal climate. Or are you just kidding again?

Well, Reagan wasn't quite as bad as I thought he was gonna be but...and Dame Maggie wasn't as bad for Britain as some thought. The main thing, they did not govern from a religious point of view. I would never vote for Shelly for the simple reason that the Christian right have never read history and therefore never learned what religion and government do to each other; as I have said to the bible belters before, if you lie down with dogs, you will rise up with fleas. Amazing they don't get it...
