Bachmann (R-Minnesota) returned to Waterloo, Iowa on Monday June 27 where she spent the first 12 years of her life, in order to announce her presidential candidacy.

The last two paragraphs of the New York Times report on her Waterloo visit illustrate Bachmann’s grasp of facts, in general, her monumental stupidity, and are a microcosm in the macrocosm of why her candidacy is doomed.

As the NYT reported: “’John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa,’ Mrs. Bachmann told Carl Cameron of Fox News in an interview. ‘That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.’ 

“The actor was actually born in Winterset, Iowa, which is about 150 miles southwest of Waterloo. It was John Wayne Gacy, known as the killer clown who raped and murdered 33 teenage boys in the 1970s, who lived in Waterloo.”
