High School Sophomore Challenges Rep. Michele Bachmann To Debate On Constitution
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann waxes poetic about her love of the Constitution, so you would think she’d relish the opportunity to school a high school sophomore in her knowledge of it. She has that opportunity, as Cherry Hill, New Jersey high school sophomore Amy Myers has written her to challenge her to a debate.
Myers says Bachmann’s frequent errors, misstatements and distortions aren’t just bad for civic discourse — they’re bad for women.
“Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole,” Myers writes.
So to show that Bachmann isn’t a great representative of her gender’s intellectual capacity, Myers proposes a battle of wits.
