MSNBC’s “Hardball” anchor Chris Matthews got in a parting shot at outgoing Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on Thursday.
“Tonight we’re recognizing her for the many outrageous, absurd and at times downright scary things she has said. It didn’t take long for US Congress[wo]man Bachmann to make a name for herself as the de facto queen of the hard right clown car. In fact, it began right here on this show, ‘Hardball,’ when she questioned then-candidate Barack Obama’s patriotism, and called for a new era of McCarthyism to root out anti-American lawmakers in the Democratic caucus.”
Matthews also ridiculed other statements made by Bachmann on Obamacare and the HPV vaccine.
He concluded by bidding “farewell to the queen of the right wing clown car.”
