Every once in a great while even Fox News gets it right. On Sunday, while being interviewed by Chris Wallace, Michele Bachmann was asked, “Are you a flake?” She failed to answer the question. The very next day however, on the eve of her official presidential announcement, Bachmann incorrectly identified movie star John Wayne’s origins in an attempt to draw a parallel between her and the American icon. She said,
“I want them to know just like John Wayne is from Waterloo Iowa, that’s the spirit I have too. It’s embracing America. It’s sacrificing for America.”
Problem is, John Wayne the actor never lived in Waterloo, Iowa. The only notable John Wayne that ever lived there was John Wayne Gacy, the notorious serial killer. Gacy, known as “the clown killer” was found guilty of 33 murders in the Chicago area in 1980 and died by lethal injection in 1994.
This is just the latest in a string of embarrassing gaffes made by Michele “Moonbat-Crazy” Bachmann. You might also recall that the Minnesota Rep. said that “The Shot Heard Round The World” which started the American Revolutionary War was fired in New Hampshire. Of course it was actually fired in Massachusetts. Another time she said, “But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.” Apparently Bachmann did not know that most of those founding fathers were slave owners and that slavery was not abolished in this country until some 90 after those men drafted the Declaration of Independence.
If nothing else, the 2012 Republican Presidential campaign will be entertaining so long as Bachmann is around. Who needs Sarah Palin?

(Sung to the Beatles song “Michele”)
Michele, from Hell
These are words that go together well,
Michele, do tell,
Do you even possess one brain cell
One tiny cell?
Just shut up, just shut up, just shut up
You have nothing to say
Would you just go away
And crawl back under that rock from whence you
Michele, Oh well,
You’ve been put under a right-wing spell
A sure death knell
On Fox News, on Fox News, on Fox News
That’s where you’ll always be
With Hannity and O’Reilly
And Coulter, the queen
We mock you…
We want you, we want you, we want you,
To leave the air-waves now
And lose your job somehow
Until you do we’re telling you so
Take with you that foul sulfuric smell
We will say the only words we know that
You’ll understand, “Go to Hell.”
