MSNBC’s Schultz hits Bachmann for ‘slit our wrists’ psycho talk

MSNBC “Ed Show” host Ed Schultz took Minnesota U.S. Rep Michele Bachmann to task last night on a regular segment called “Psycho Talk,” in which he attempts to deconstruct egregious examples of right-wing hyperbole. Bachmann’s comments in Denver Monday at an event hosted by the Independence Institute made perfect “Psycho Talk” fodder. Bachmann asked anti-health reform Americans to “make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing..[to do] whatever it takes” to make sure health reform legislation does not pass.
