It was the type of shout-fest debate that would not have been out of place in the original Crossfire. But instead of taking place on the reboot of that show, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went head-to-head on CNN’s The Situation Room Monday afternoon. Once they got going, all host Wolf Blitzer had to do was get out of the way as these two ideologically-opposed lawmakers went at each other’s throats for nearly fifteen minutes straight.
It really is something to watch. Blitzer to Sanders: “More taxes on the wealthy?” Sanders: “Yeeeeessss! My goodness!” Crazy Eyes: “Well. I happen to be a former tax litigation attorney…blah blah blah.”
