Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin: Politics or Heartburn?


In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Bachmann said of her presidential ambitions, “I’ve had this calling and tugging on my heart that this is the right thing to do.”

Sarah Palin, in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, said “I have that fire in my belly.”

Michele Bachmann has a tugging on her heart. Sarah Palin has a burning in her gut. Instead of assuming they are being called by God,  perhaps they should assume they have heartburn. Get some Tums. And both women can afford to see a good internist—and are proud that they are such good Americans that they can go see a doctor whenever they want.

Go to your concierge physician, ladies. Make sure to step over, not on, the unwashed masses, lest you get poverty on your pricy shoes.
