David Gregory calmly feeds Michele Bachmann her own ass on Meet the Press

...And apparently the answer to "Do you consider a gay couple with adopted children a family" is "I believe marriage is between one man and one woman." There's very little I can say to illuminate this awesome and refreshing piece of newsmedia, wherein Meet the Press host David Gregory makes Rep. Bachmann listen to a small selection of anti-gay clips from her own speeches, then asks her such straightforward questions as "is this is the view President Bachmann would have of gay Americans?" "Would you ever consider appointing an openly gay person to any post in your administration?" and "Do you consider a gay couple with adopted children to be a family?" 

Bachmann somehow manages to avoid answering every single question, btw; but Gregory manages to keep holding her accountable for her non-answer answers without getting huffy or combative, which, hats off to you bro. Sitting there calmly asking your questions and not taking "I am running for the presidency" as an answer. You so get a cookie. Check out the video...

I would really love to hear a journalist ask a politician to please just answer the question. And not let up on them until they do. It would be so satisfying.

I agree.  I would love a question-answer session where this was possible.

It was really satisfying when Rachel Maddow nailed Richard Cohen (the "cure the gays" guy), but she had to ask to go overtime on her show to do it.  Politicians know that TV shows only exist in five to ten minute chunks these days so all they have to do is run down the clock by repeating non-answers.
