Michele Bachmann vs. Chris Wallace: It’s Still On

By now, this kind of story would have run its course. But, alas, it hasn’t.

About 24 hours ago, on FOX News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked presidential candidate Michele Bachman: “Are you a flake?” Later yesterday, in his weekly “Wallace Watch,” Wallace apologized: “I messed up. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean any disrespect.”

ABC’s Jon Karl interviewed Bachmann this morning before she announced her candidacy for president in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.
