    So (again) Bachman is proven to be historically accurate, and her detractors laughably desperate to cling to any semantic that can bring her down a peg.



    really. it's a capital city. you would have thought that would have picked at someone's memory.
    Give me a freaking break. I am a native of the Granite State and I have never heard of anyone claiming Concord and Lexington...

    I will not defend Bachman here.

    In fact, I think we'd be tremendously alarmed about how little basic hisotrical knowledge Barack Obama has, too.

    I think we'd be sadly disappointed that this is the case with a pretty large percentage of our elected officials. And shame on many Americans for consistently voting based on personality and looks, rather depth and acumen. Bachman also said our "founding fathers ended slavery". Uh, no, sweetheart, that would be our 16th president.

    I guarantee you Nancy Pelosi probably couldn't tell you with any specificity who Alexander Hamilton or Thomas Paine were. I'd bet my house on it. We'd be shocked at how little she knows about anything, particularly American history.

    The reason so few of our politicians, especially blue-state Democrats, don't respect our Constitution is because they have virtually no grasp of the history of this country to begin with.

    That's why I trust candidates like history fanatic Newt Gingrich (though their are other issues with him). If you could splice him and Romney into the same person, I'd vote for that candidate it a minute.

    I'm from Texas, where we could fit all those little puzzle piece states together and make a panhandle.

    LOL

    New England ruins a child's fun of putting together an United States puzzle. Ten minutes after taking it out of the box, no one can find Rhode Island in the carpet.

    It's a damn good thing she didn't pick the 57th state.

    This is just a totally trivial issue for anyone other than the terminally hyperpartisan.

    She's a congresswoman in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Whatever happen to the best and the brightest?? Whatever happened to exceptional people making it to positions of power and leading by example? Isn't that the ideal we should strive for? People like her need to be driven out.

    That's the problem with certain parts of America -- since W., they keep lowering their standards. Dimwits like her get on TV, say crazy stuff and the far-right base gets all excited...
