Michele Bachmann, Dana Bash, and ... Macklemore?

During her eight years in the public and political spotlight, Michele Bachmann has been a lot of things. Boring, however, is not one of them.

Watch the video above for Bash's lively interview with Bachmann, including the 58-year-old mother of five's nod to hip-hop's Macklemore.
