Irritable vowel: Alan Colmes tries to make Rep. Bachmann look dumb, fails miserably

Man. It’s been a rough day for Alan Colmes. First he makes an ass out of himself by professing his sympathy for the America-hating mother of the accused Boston bombers.

Then, he attempts to make Rep. Michele Bachmann look foolish for misquoting Shakespeare, only to wind up with all the egg on his face.

Bachmann may not have quoted Shakespeare correctly, but Colmes’ vowel confusion doesn’t exactly enrich his own literary credibility. Pro tip, Alan: Spellcheck can be your friend. Don’t fight it.

Epic fail? Most indeededly.
