Bachmann diminutive in character?

So said Tom Emmer at the CD 6 convention, according to Larry Schumacher at the SC Times.
"We have good fortune of having person represent us, who may be diminutive in character, but who speaks with a loud voice for us in Washington D.C.

"Did I make a mistake? (crowd yells, "Stature, not character!"). "Well, I assure you, it was not a freudian slip. She has great character."

Hurries to end and intros Bachmann.

I bet it was the "other Tom Emmer" that said it though...

Also from Schumacher's live blog of the CD 6 GOP Convention...
Mike Bauman, Vets for Freedom Minnesota state chairman, addressing crowd immediately after Bachmann:

"My fellow Minnesotans, my fellow Republicans, distinguished delegates ...

"I am an Iraq War veteran ... proud Republican and committed Christian believer.

But their efforts in Forest Lake were non-partisan...right.

According to Schumacher, Bachmann left during this Veterans speech.

This was excellent coverage by Larry Schumacher. TW Budig mentioned how this was unusual for the Republican Party to ban media video/audio taping of the convention.
