When I saw this Michelle Bachmann ad my first thought was, “Don’t go there, Michele, this will not help you.”  But on second thought, why not?

I have been in favor of niceness so far, but I wondering whether it’s gone on long enough.  Why shouldn’t the candidates face the types of challenges the nominee will face, sooner rather than later?

I’m not suggesting we go all “Voodoo economics,” but at some point the candidates need to be tested by each other not just the mainstream media.
