Michele Bachmann's Parting Request To Obama: Bomb Iran

What will we do without Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), now that she's retiring from Congress? Known for her zany comments, Bachmann went out with a bang–or advocated one, asking President Obama at the White House Christmas party to bomb Iran. She told Fox News that she tried to have a "substantive conversation": “I asked the president to be very serious and to think about this because if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon on his watch, the course of history will change.” One supposes it will also change if Obama bombs Iran tomorrow morning. Anyway, Bachmann came away annoyed with Obama's refusal to heed her foreign policy counsel: “He smiled and laughed and was fairly patronizing, and said, ‘Well, you know, it just isn’t that easy, Michele, but that’s OK,’ like I’m some little woman who doesn’t know what I’m talking about.” Watch her interview with a sympathetic Fox host:
