She’s Palin 2.O: Michele Bachmann’s 10 Goofiest Gaffes & Craziest Quotes

July 8, 2011  |  

Locating the Battle of Lexington & Concord — In the Wrong State
Someone get this woman map. No seriously — In a gaffe practically anyone could make (who had never looked at a map), Bachmann told a New Hampshire crowd that “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.” Of course, the battle of Lexington and Concord happened one state away in Massachusetts, but that didn’t stop Bachmann from repeating the same historical inaccuracy several times thereafter. When she finally admitted her mistake a few days later, she did a very Palin-eqsue thing and blamed the “lamestream” media for magnifying her error in anti-Conservative, “double standard” fashion. Way to take responsibility for your own actions, Michele. Definitely presidential material.
