Whoopsie Daisy of the Day: Rep. Michele Bachmann was in her birth town of Waterloo, Iowa this morning to announce her candidacy for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Speaking with Fox News, Bachmann compared her spirit to that of another Waterloo native — John Wayne.
One tiny hitch, tho: John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa — about three hours away. Waterloo, meanwhile, is famous for another sort of John Wayne: John Wayne Gacy, the “killer clown” responsible for rape and murder of 33 young men.
That’s not who she meant, right?
Also, as Wonkette notes, launching a presidential campaign in Waterloo? Eesh.
