    Bachmann Muddles American History, Puts Battles Of Lexington And Concord In New Hampshire | TPMDC

    Rep. Michele Bachmann got her Revolutionary War history a bit screwed up at an event in New Hampshire today, telling the crowd: "What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty. You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord."

    The Battles of Lexington and Concord and the shot heard round the world took place in Massachusetts.

    So what, minor slip up. I hate gotcha games and I'd love to be rid of "See said NORTH KOREA" and "He said Fifty SEVEN states," but I imagine ill get an ear full of bull**** explanation as to why slip ups are just slip ups, but this one is much more than that!

    Honestly, this is just one of those things that really isn't that big of a deal. So she misspoke.

    I agree that it minor, but as the link points out, she made the same mistake the night before at a fundraiser. You would think somebody clued her in.

    she possesses the shrub's "depth", only without the engaging personality
    we have her, palin, huck, newt ... 2012 should be a challenge for Obama, but the gop has no one to run against him

    Must be a slow news day for the Bachmann haters.

    Talk about a non-story considering all of the gaffs from Biden and Obama, among others. Being a native of the Granite State, all I want to know is if she pronounced Concord correctly or not...

    Another 15 miles north and part of the battle would have been in New Hampshire.
