It’s here.  Michelle Bachman, on FoxNews, compares herself to John Wayne, who was also from Waterloo, Iowa.  Sure, Bachmann didn’t know history enough to know Lexington and Concord happened in Massachusetts, but she’s sure to know the history of her own hometown, right? 

Sadly, no.  John Wayne, born as Marion Robert Morrison, was born in Winterset, Iowa.  John Wayne Gacy, however, was born in Waterloo, Iowa. 

Recent polling shows Bachmann is in a statistical dead heat with Mitt Romney in Iowa.  Conclusions?  Well, I posed with a picture of a clown yesterday.  My son thought it was funny.  But I can’t find a way to make this funny at all, and certainly the thought of a candidate for President throwing this kind of stupid out there is mind-numbing. 

Please provide the punchline for me.  Please.
