• Not-So-Friendly Fire: Neil Cavuto Explodes on Michele Bachmann

    "Rome's burning and you're filing!"

    Well, that was unpleasant. Don’t you just hate watching mommy and daddy fight like this? Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) certainly had no idea what she was in for when she sat down with Neil Cavuto to discuss House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to file a lawsuit against Barack Obama. Something had clearly gotten into Cavuto’s Snickers® Bar on Wednesday, because he completely flew off the handle. It’s understandable, considering the fact that branches of government filing lawsuits against one another is a surefire distraction…but it’s not like Congress was going to get anything done anyway this year. If anything, Cavuto should support Boehner’s lawsuit, since it will probably encourage voters to throw all the Congressional bums out and start fresh next year.

    Neil returned after the commercial break that followed this cringe-worthy segment, apologizing for cutting the Congresswoman off. “But I don’t apologize for my sentiment for the fact that we are wasting time filing lawsuits against one another,” he said. “These types of charades — and I’m sorry, that’s what I call them — are just that, charades.”

    That’s absolutely right. Because, you know, shouting matches on TV are never charades.
