Bachmann responded on Sean Hannity's show, saying, "I was patronized and basically told to sit down and shut up."

In other news, Rasmussen reports: "Republican Pat Toomey now leads incumbent Senator Arlen Specter 49% to 40% in Pennsylvania’s race for the U.S. Senate."

Specter's poll numbers continue to sink, and he continues to reveal himself as a man unhinged.
