The Incredible Michele Bachmann

Unfortunately, the story doesn't hold water, as researcher Chris Rodda ably points out at OpEdNews.

So Rodda, who has a background in genealogical research, decided to do a little digging. Without too much trouble, she found that Bachmann is actually a fourth-generation American, not seventh, as she claimed. And that's just the start.

Bachmann's immigrant ancestors didn't make a pilgrimage straight to the promised land of Iowa. From Quebec, they went to Wisconsin. That's where the 1860 census found them. From there, they moved to the Dakota Territory.
Why is this woman so popular? Do the Obama-haters fear a second term so badly that they've become even blinder than usual?

What do you think? Please leave a comment.


  1. Michele Bachman does something that I thought was impossible. She makes Sarah Palin, Sharron Angle, Mean Jean Schmidt and a host of other GOP Stepfordians look somewhat sane, if only by comparison.

  2. democommie, I really think Michele is right up there with the rest of them. But, if needs be, maybe you have to exaggerate how bad Palin is in order to fit Bachmann into the spectrum.

    The scarey part is the racist conservatives will actually try to push someone like that into the White House.
