Like, totally I know I called Michele Bachmann a 'poor man's Sarah Palin' one time, but like, I've totally changed my mind:
“I famously said a statement earlier where I said that Michele Bachmann was the poor man’s Sarah Palin, and after meeting this woman I am completely wrong,“ McCain said Thursday on ”Now With Alex Wagner.“ ”This is the thinking man’s Sarah Palin.”
“I didn’t know what to expect and I’m a person who has been around politicians my entire life,” she added about meeting Bachmann. “I connected with this woman and I thought, this is what she should be doing, she’s talking about being a mother and on foreign policy things….I loved her.”
Asked later to further compare Bachmann to her father’s 2008 running mate, McCain had a grammatical hiccup when she said she found Bachmann “more smarter.”
“I think she’s — this is going to get me in trouble — but I actually I think she’s just more smarter. I think that she’s more — on foreign policy I mean I just think all the things she’s done in the debates, I’ve been very impressed,” McCain said. “I just thinks she‘s older and more established and you know she’s been a member of Congress for a very long time.”
