Michele Bachmann & Cameragate: closure at last

Remember when Michele Bachmann gave the Tea Party response to the State of the Union Address? And remember how that big dum-dum was looking in the wrong camera? Er, um, well, actually, no she wasn’t.

Breitbart.tv reports:

So, what was really up with the televised feed of Rep. Bachmann’s State of the Union response?

Our sources tell us that CNN had originally agreed to use the live feed set up by Tea Party Express, which had a teleprompter running on the lens in which Rep. Bachmann was delivering her speech. But, when Rep. Bachmann left the camera set-up and sat in the House chamber to hear Pres. Obama’s speech, CNN set up a camera of their own, just off to the side of the main, tele-prompter/camera. Thus, when CNN provided their network feed it ended up skewed and off-kilter…

Sources now confirm that the pool camera providing the feed for CNN was Fox News. The Fox News pool camera was set up off-kilter from the tele-prompter feed despite the protestations of the Tea Party Express production team…

Here, we present the direct, Tea Party Express feed as was originally broadcast to on-line viewers (including viewers at Breitbart.tv) the night of the speech.

So she was doing what was planned all along, and some other guys came in and futzed with it. Oh well! I’m sure the people who thought this was a substantive criticism of Bachmann’s speech have actual, you know, substantive criticisms.

LOL! At least SNL got a really funny sketch out of it:

Well, she does kinda look like Bachmann.

Glad that whole camera thing is cleared up. It’s almost like the libs don’t have any other ammo. Er… so to speak!
