An email suggesting that Michele Bachmann would have a limited role in Saturday night’s debate was mistakenly copied to the Bachmann campaign.

In the e-mail hours before the debate, CBS News’ political analyst John Dickerson wrote:

“OK, let’s keep it loose though since [Rep. Michele Bachmann] is not going to get many questions during the debate and she’s nearly off the charts in the hopes of getting someone else.”

As a result, Bachman’s campaign manager Keith Nahigian (pictured) made his feeling known.

“John Dickerson should be fired. He is a piece of s—. He is a fraud and he should be fired,” Nahigian said.

Nahigian later expressed regret for the phrase after saying he could not recall his choice of words in the description.

A CBS spokeswoman did not apologize for the email.

“It was a candid exchange about the reality of the circumstances — Bachmann remains at 4 percent in the polls,” the spokeswoman told Fox News.
