The war of words between Howard Stern and Michele Bachmann reminds me recent Fox attack on the Muppet movie.
In a nutshell, if you are arguing with the Muppets, you are losing your argument. There is no way to win an argument with a Muppet because if you make a well thought out reasoned argument, that well thought out reasoned argument was just made to a Muppet.
Bachmann can not win this. Either she will be made ridiculous by Stern or she will make herself ridiculous responding to Stern.
