Bachmann: I Invited Nancy Pelosi To Join My Tea Party Caucus (VIDEO)

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Rep. Michele Bachmann says her new House Tea Party Caucus is open to anybody – in fact, she’s even invited Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to join.

Appearing on Fox News this morning, host Bill Hemmer asked Bachmann whether more people would be joining. “Oh absolutely. The very first member to join the Caucus is a member of the Republican leadership,” said Bachmann, referring to House GOP Conference Chair Mike Pence (R-IN). “I’ve written a letter to invite Speaker Pelosi to join as well. It’s bipartisan, open to everyone. And it’s really — the Tea Party is not a political party, like Republican Party or Democrat Party. It’s a set of ideas. And the ideas are very simple.”

What exactly would Pelosi do if she joined the Tea Party Caucus? Hang herself in effigy?
