Is Michele Bachmann smarter than a high school sophomore?

Michele Bachmann is famously reluctant to put herself in positions where she might have to talk to someone who disagrees with her.

But Jesus God do we hope she makes an exception in this instance.

Amy Myers, a high school sophomore from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging the Minnesota Representative to a debate and public test on the constitution, U.S. history, and civics.

From Amy's letter to Michelle Bachmann...

Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:

I, Amy Myers, do 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.

It is so very interesting that a Minneapolis public school sophomore would feel confident enough to challenge a Congressperson to a civics debate.

...but do you suppose there is a chance in hell it will happen?
