Rep. Michele Bachmann is a constant source of embarrassment. Her latest antics were caught on CSPAN.
Representatives from the CIA, including newly-installed Director John Brennan, didn’t quite know what to make of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) this week when they sat down to answer questions from the House Intelligence Committee.

What scares me the most is that Bachmann does things like this:
But the most bizarre moment came at the end of Bachmann’s time when she asked about Iran’s “heavy water reactor.” The CIA men conferred amongst themselves for several seconds before politely informing Bachmann that it would be better to have that discussion in a “closed session.”
How hard is it to know the difference between something you can discuss in public and something you must discuss in private?
