Bachmann doesn’t like McCain or global warming

The Pi Press' Political Animal points out (via the West Sherburne Tribune) that GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann is not so happy with John McCain as the party's endorsed candidate. Bachmann said: "He is not my man," she said. "Our candidate was chosen by the media. But there are other races out there."

She also called global warming a "hoax":

"The big thing we are working on now is the global warming hoax. It's all voodoo, nonsense, hokum, a hoax," Bachmann said. "The tax cap and trade system for limiting emissions is just another tax on businesses. By 2012, incandescent light bulbs will be no more. Fluorescent bulbs are more polluting because of their mercury content. We are working on the light bulb bill. If the Democrats can hose up a light bulb don't trust them with the country."

Do comments like this help or hurt Bachmann among Republicans? How about in the general election?
