Specter tells Bachmann to 'act like a lady'
Michele Bachmann had been asked by the host at a radio talk show to highlight the policies of Arlen Specter that she had supported over the year. Her answer angered Arlen Specter who demanded that she 'act like a lady'.

A RADIO appearance in Philadelphia has created waves all over the net, when two politicians took a debate too far. Senator Arlen Specter who was on the debate with Representative Michele Bachmann became angered over an interuption by the former and, in what has become a highly controversial statement, demanded that she “act like a lady.”

Arlen Specter and Michele Bachmann had been debating at a radio talk show by Dom Giordano on the first year anniversary of the Obama administration.

Michele Bachmann had been asked by the host to highlight the policies of Arlen Specter that she had supported over the year. Taking an economic turn in the answer, she had remarked that prosperity would happen when the income tax rate would be cut to 22 per cent and capital gains tax and estate tax would be finished.

At this point the Arlen Specter interjected, criticising her reply. When she started to explain, he said, “Now wait a minute. I’ll stop and you can talk. I’ll treat you like a lady. So act like one.”

To this Michele Bachmann quipped “I am a lady”. He began counter questioning her about whom she had voted for. When she replied prosperity, he commented that it wasn't a bill. Michele Bachmann commented that it should have been one and Arlen Specter lost his temper, making the comment, “I didn’t interrupt you. Act like a lady.”
