How Did Politicians Fare? Key Voting Results


Chris Matthews to Michelle Bachman: “Are you hypnotized?” A combative Chris Matthews accuses Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) of being “hypnotized” and under a “trance” because he said she keeps giving the same answer.

As Matthews mocked Bachmann, she said that we’re out of this “nightmare” and “we’re thrilled … I think people are thrilling tonight, I imagine that thrill is maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore, I’m not sure anymore,” Rep. Bachmann told Matthews. Chris Matthews also denied saying ‘tingling.’

Matthews: I felt this ‘thrill’ go up my leg.
