Bachmann claims the phrase, "frugal socialist"

Eric Ostermeier weighs in on "frugal socialism" comment.

"Smart Politics is not suggesting Rep. Bachmann or her campaign were aware of previous usages of the phrase. She may want to reconsider any thoughts she may have of ordering in bulk 'End Frugal Socialism' T-shirts for her campaign website," Mr. Ostermeier observes. " Because Herman Cain is likely to come up with a phrase that is just as memorable over the next 24 hours."
