Specter to Bachmann – ‘Act like a lady!’

Jan 21, 2010 4:21pm

ABC News' Z. Byron Wolf reports: Here’s a heck of a rhetorical exchange on a Philadelphia talk show yesterday. The combatants – Sen. Arlen Specter, R turned D, seeking reelection, and Rep. Michelle Bachman, R-Minn., who has done as much as anyone in Congress to channel the zeitgeist of the tea party movement. It gets a little heated when Bachmann cuts Specter off several times. He gets frustrated and, at several points, tells Bachmann to “act like a lady” and quit interrupting him. “Now wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk," Specter said. "I'll treat you like a lady. So act like one." Check out an edited version on the Minneapolis Star Tribune website. Later, as they argue about government, Bachman said she is for prosperity. Specter shot back that “prosperity is not a bill.” “Well, why don’t we make it one,” said Bachmann.
