News Roundup for 1/21/11

Is her name really Michelle Bachmann?

-Headline of the day-
"PolitiFact: Bachmann’s claims ‘false’ more often than any other politician."

Rep. Michelle Bachmann lives in a different world from the rest of us. And it's costing her, because that world doesn't look anything like the world we live in. See, Shelly has some weird hope that she stands a chance in hell of becoming president, so she took a trip to Iowa, to seed the fertile ground in advance of the caucuses.

"Only a day before the congresswoman's Friday visit to Iowa," the report tells us, "the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact noted that she had made false statements more often than any public official."

"We have checked her 13 times, and seven of her claims to be false and six have been found to be ridiculously false," PolitiFact editor Bill Adair told Minnesota Public Radio. Do the math. It turns out that Shelly tells the truth... Let's see... 13-7-6=never. A trip through PolitiFact's file on Bachmann confirms my math. Rep. Michelle Bachmann, representative from the great state of Minnesota, is not on the record as ever having said anything true.

So, if she says she has a chance of ever being president, well... you know. (Raw Story)
