Well, the hits keep on coming. Michelle Bachmann on the suspicious re-emergence of swine flu “under another Democratic president”:
“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter,” said Bachmann. “And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.”
Er, Michelle. That incident of swine flu occurred under Gerald Ford, not Jimmy Carter. And while it turned out to be less than lethal, Ford’s response was. Swearing he would inoculate every American, he gave up after killing over 40 of them, and causing extensive neurological damage in others that survived.
Keep it up, gal. We’re rooting for ya!
