Michele Bachmann is apparently trying to challenge Sarah Palin (see blood libel comments) for the status of biggest moron in politics. Bachmann wasted little time blasting President Obama after his State of the Union Address last night and made herself look like a complete fool in the process.
Also, Michele Bachmann in her "speech on Monday" brought up slavery with regards to our founding fathers putting an end to it, which is about as historically accurate as chess legend Bobby Fischer's theory on the Holocaust.
Congresswoman Bachmann stated, "the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States....Men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country."
I don't need to rehash this because anyone who has a clue knows that slavery wasn't abolished by the founding fathers. In fact, slavery wasn't abolished until January 31, 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified. On a side note, John Quincy Adams wasn't a "founding father", but the son of John Adams. Apparently you don't need a knowledge of history to serve in the Federal Government anymore. Bachmann appeases to the lowest common denominator in this country anyway, so those people are a lost cause. Many of the Tea Party types (Tea Baggers if you will) she appeases to rejected Obama before he ever set foot in office because of the color of his skin. It's still a pretty embarrassing faux pas nonetheless.
