Rep. Bachmann was explaining to Jay Leno her belief that "innocent
twelve-year-old girls" shouldn't be "forced" to have "a government
injection" against HPV.  Leno said "You're very strident about this." (He
meant "passionate" or "insistent" or something like that.)

Bachmann said, "I'm convicted! I'm convicted!"

She holds a conviction, in other words.

No OED, which offers the religious forerunner.

"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
