Rep. Michele Bachmann Misquotes Shakespeare From Hamlet! (VIDEO)


Rep. Michele Bachmann spent her ninety seconds on the House floor criticizing the speeches made by some of her Democratic colleagues. She tried to impress the audience by quoting Shakespeare.

Bachmann hinted at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) for being "extremely passionate" regarding sequestrationthough it was a democrat, President Obama who signed on the sequestration bill.

Bachmann said, “There were numerous Republicans that voted against the sequestration because we knew all of these calamities were in the future. And so it reminds me of the Shakespeare line: 'Thou protesteth too much’.”

The line, which comes from Shakespeare's Hamlet, is in fact, "The lady doth protest too much."
