When I heard Wallace ask Michele Bachmann if she’s a flake I cringed a little, and I’m not surprised Wallace ended up apologizing. (Update: Apology not accepted?)

You know, when I think of political figures who have made questionable statements and embarrassing gaffes in the past few days, Michele Bachmann isn’t the name that springs to mind, but she’s obviously the candidate in this race so far who is going to be unfairly tagged as the gaffey one.

Are Chris Wallace and Chris Matthews swapping gigs this month or something?

Here’s how it played out:

*****

My “wishful thinking” response was something like, “I’m the least flaky person in all 58 states, Chris.”

If Bachmann’s a flake, then flake-on:

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann sit atop the standings in the year’s first Des Moines Register Iowa Poll on the Republican presidential field.

Romney, the national front-runner and a familiar face in Iowa after his 2008 presidential run, attracts support from 23 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers. Bachmann, who will officially kick off her campaign in Iowa on Monday, nearly matches him, with 22 percent.
