Still: @MicheleBachmann/Twitter

Michele Bachmann, a mother-of-five in town from a flyover state, successfully operated a New York City subway turnstile this morning, and on her first try no less—much better than can be said of Hillary Clinton.

Bachmann—who owns a Christian counseling business, makes a mean hotdish, and enjoys uncomfortable conversation about “fascist” liberal politicians like Clinton with anyone willing to listen—took just one swipe at the card reader as she entered the station this morning, assuming this was the first take of the video. It’s not every day an out-of-towner makes it through the turnstile without holding up a single harried commuter.

Just that easy, just that quick. Agree with her strange midwestern views or not, New Yorkers should be thankful for tourists like Michele Bachmann.
