Video of the Day: Bachmann Plays GOP Word Association With Jimmy Fallon

This went a lot better than Michele Bachmann's "pray away the gray" appearance on Jay Leno. As it turns out, Bachmann isn't too egregiously unfunny, for a politician at least.

When Jimmy Fallon asked her to associate words with her current 2012 rivals, the Tea-Party congresswoman was quick enough to mock Rick Perry's "oops" moment, and when Fallon said "Gingrich," she uttered a confusing-yet-eerily-apt "Newwwwwt." It sounded like she was telling the former speaker, "You've been bad." Which he possibly has been, by some accounts.
