Even if it hadn’t been published in the Daily Caller, I would give only minimal weight to the latest hit-piece on Michelle Bachmann.
Yes, the Presidency is a demanding job, which means that candidates’ medical history is relevant information for voters. And yes, it’s possible to have such debilitating migraines as to be a disqualification for the job. But the story doesn’t really make that case, and the snide reference to “pill use” is really over the top.
However, a Mafia-like approach to inquiring reporters is a different matter.
Footnote And yes, one could hope that the Bachmann-friendly wingnuts outraged by the DC story would draw the proper inference when the DC picks on one of its usual liberal targets. But one would hope largely in vain.
Bonus question Was the DC just doing routine tabloid hackery without any ulterior political motive, or were they carrying water for the Romneyites or – more plausibly – for Rick Perry, the official wingnut-waiting-in-the-wings-for-Bachmann-to-stumble?
