Doctor’s note about Bachmann’s “good general health”

GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann took a question this morning about the “migraine story” and this afternoon her campaign has released a letter from a doctor  attesting to her “good general health.”  Rival Tim Pawlenty addressed Bachmann’s fitness for the presidency during a Q&A with reporters early this afternoon, saying candidates for the office must prove “they can do all of the job, all of the time.”  The statement from the Bachmann campaign is below:

Des Moines, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann released a letter today from The Attending Physician of the United States Congress addressing her health in regard to experiencing migraine headaches. Dr. Brian Monahan, MD, MACP, describes the Congresswoman’s status as “overall in good general health.”

Dr. Monahan further notes: “Your migraines occur infrequently and have known trigger factors of which you are aware and know how to avoid.” The doctor adds that Bachmann is “able to control” those infrequent occurrences with prescribed medication.
