Michele Bachmann: The Media’s Persecuting Me By Quoting My Words

The ever popular media persecution whine
Wingnuts • Views: 26,239

You may have heard about the latest hilariously stupid gaffe by Michele Bachmann (R-Mars); during a trip to New Hampshire, she waxed nostalgic over the beginning of the Revolutionary War, in Lexington and Concord, New Hampshire.

Only problem is that the war actually started in Lexington and Concord, in Massachusetts. And for extra bonus derpitude, Bachmann repeated it twice.

Who could ever have guessed that her defense would consist of complaining about being the victim of media bias?

Bachmann, the Tea Party darling who’s considering running for president in 2012, acknowledged that she made a mistake when she said (incorrectly) over the weekend that the Revolutionary War started in Concord, N.H., not at Lexington and Concord in nearby Massachusetts, where the revolution actually got under way.

“I made a mistake; I should’ve said Massachusetts rather than New Hampshire,” she said Tuesday. “We all know that there’s a double standard in the media.”
