To celebrate International Women's Day, former President of Crazyland Michele Bachmann assured the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference that "We will have a woman for president, just the right one." Bachmann went on to attack Hillary Clinton's record as secretary of State, including her handling of Russia and — what else? — Benghazi. The Minnesota congresswoman noted that "we are the party, the only party, that had a woman on the presidential ticket this century." That's true, though the GOP's decision to unleash Sarah Palin on the world doesn't really inspire much confidence in their ability to produce the "right" female president, at least according to one definition of that word.
