This is quite funny! You cant navigate FaceBook, Twitter or the cable news programs without hearing about this New Jersey high school student who challenged Michele Bachmann to a constitutional duel. Considering popularity of the show "Think You Know More Than A 5th Grader", I suspect the fresh civic teachings in her public school give her the edge, and considering Michele has has decades of distorting the document. 
Always one to proclaim her constitutional conservative roots,  she cherry-picks lines to make her arguments when she's attacking the middleclass. So much so, that Amy Myers has thrown down the challenge to the Congresswoman. 
 In this "open letter", Amy states: "I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted. I, hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics."
This may be her blog, when Bachmann responds I'm sure we'll all hear some more of her zany commentary. It's always ripe for the news cycles because the content is always juicy. Frankly I'd pay-per-view any such constitutional match if she decides to accept the challenge. But don't hold your breath. 
Note: When asked, Trump said he didn't know what the 13 stripes on the flag represented.

Mike, you always make me laugh. You bring some of the most bizarre issues out for us to read. Not always pertaining to our county, but funny.
I would also like to see such a match. If it happens, make an effort to find and post it here. I'll have the popcorn ready.

BatShitCrazy is right. What has happened to the Republican Party? She would have been taken out and shot by the GOP leadership 20 years ago. Now she simply blends in.
