The scoop from Washington

Michele Bachmann casts herself as "Iron Lady"

| No Comments

DES MOINES--GOP White House hopeful Michele Bachmann needs not to come in last in Tuesday's Iowa caucus if she wants to continue in the race for the 2012 nomination and polling shows her in bad shape. Her Iowa spot stresses her Iowa roots and implicitly compares her to British former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, (no, not Meryl Streep) via the title: "Michele Bachmann for President: America's Iron Lady."

Defination of Iron Lady, from Wikipedia:
"Iron Lady is a nickname that has frequently been used to describe female heads of government around the world."

Not to be confused with the new movie about Thatcher staring Streep, "Iron Lady."
