    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.
    Where on earth did you come up with this poppycock? I thought you were the party of personal responsibility, willing to stand up and say you were wrong? Wait, you are a conservative, where did I come up with that poppycock?

    You obviously shared the same textbook with Michelle Bachmann. Spend a few more dollars and buy a geography book written by someone that actually knows the topic.

    Well... except the one that Bachmann was speaking in... that one actually turns red from time to time... as it did in the most recent mid-term elections and almost certainly will again in the next Presidential election unless the GOP really screws up in its choice of candidates (not out of the realm of possibility)

    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.
    Yet, four of those states were among the original 13 and played such a vital role in the country we all love...

    This isn't so bad. Her assertion that immigrants to America were treated the same regardless of skin color is laughable. Tell that to the African slaves that were forcibly brought.

    If Bachmann thinks she has a chance at getting elected, she's more delusional than anybody thought. She barely wins re-election in a district that is drawn specifically for a Republican to win. (Anybody with a basic knowledge of the geography of Minnesota knows this.)

    I hope she does run. It will make the Republican primary debate highly entertaining (and slightly scary).

    I've always wondered how someone that clearly unqualified and out of her league gets elected to U.S. Congress.

    The people who scout for GOP candidates actually met with picked Bachmann and Palin. Unbelievable.

    I have to believe it's because they were electable and easily manipulated and controlled once in office. They moved W. up the ranks and got him in the WH, but found out he wanted to be 'the decider' in the 2nd term. Now Bachmann is a loose cannon in the house.

    I'd just like to bring up something real quick here.

    Now I want to say first off, I don't care. if I knew every detail of my countries history my brain would explode. There are plenty of legitimate complains against Bachmann, this is far from one of them.

    But I'd please like everyone to remember what they did when Obama got a quote given to the wrong person on the oval office rug
