As was expected, Republicans seized control of the House on the night of Election 2010. The highest profile move featured Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) bumping Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) from the speakership Something that wasn’t exactly expected came of the interview CNBC’s Chris Matthews attempted to conduct with winning incumbent Republican Sen. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, reports Mediaite. “Senator Bachmann, have you been hypnotized tonight?” is the question an exasperated Matthews asked after Bachmann continually ignored his questions about subpoena power and investigation into un-American activities. All the re-elected senator could muster was repetition of the Republican talking points.
Michele Bachmann wanted no part of her own witch hunt
Republicans achieved several victories in the Election 2010. Michele Bachmann may have been trying to be happy about that. Now “the American people have spoken,” which means that there will be lower taxes and more jobs, Bachmann told Matthews over and over again. The political television was quite humorous, though, because Bachmann wouldn’t even recognize what Chris Matthews was asking. The responses that Michele Bachmann gave were things that Matthews wouldn’t let slip by, which is typical of the commentator from shows such as “Hardball.” “Has someone hypnotized you? Because no matter what I ask you, you give the same answer,” his response was. Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and others on CNBC were chuckling as he said this.
‘Not quite so tingly on your leg’
Once Sen. Michele Bachmann (hypnotized or not) realized she could no longer press rewind and still save face in the interview, she made reference to the American people “coming out of their trance,” which was at least a partial recovery, suggested some pundits. She then said one last thing to Matthews. She said, “I think people are thrilled tonight. I imagine that thrill is probably maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore; I’m not sure about that.” Matthews then explained the tingly leg reference after the interview. Chris Matthews was quoted as saying he got a “tingle of excitement” when Obama spoke during the 2008 presidential elections. Matthews said he was excited, but he did not use the word “tingle.”
