The following Bachmann characterizations and assessments fly into the public realm: the “thinking man’s Sarah Palin”; “very candid”; “more smarter”; “older and more established”; “she is very experienced, very knowledgeable”; “she does come across as the thinking person’s Sarah Palin”; “her intelligence comes through.”
