Michele Bachmann to Brody File: 'I’m not queen of the Tea Party'

(By David Brody, The Brody File) - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann tells 'The Brody File' that she is “not queen of the Tea Party,” but if she gets into the 2012 presidential race you can bet that her Tea Party “street cred” will come in handy.

Here’s the political reality: If she jumps in, she would have a check next to the Tea Party box and the Evangelical box as well. That might not make her the queen of the Tea Party, but it sure makes her a strong “Teavangelical.” (A Brody File original word. You won’t find it in Webster’s Dictionary)
