Bachmann Admits Migraines Story

Rep. Michele Bachmann yesterday confirmed Daily Caller's story about her long-running migraines, but denied that the condition would affect her ability to be president.
"Like nearly 30 million other Americans, I experience migraines that are easily controlled with medication," Bachmann, R-Minn., said in a statement. "Let me be abundantly clear — my ability to function effectively has never been impeded by migraines and will not affect my ability to serve as commander in chief." The statement followed a story on the website Daily Caller that included comments about Bachmann's migraines being so debilitating that they, at times, led to hospitalization. The Daily Caller alleged two occasions in 2010 in which she visited urgent-care clinics in California and Connecticut for treatment for severe migraines.
According to some aides, Bachmann has bizarrely blamed her migraines on the wearing of high heels.
