"Serious person" Michele Bachmann continues to be serious.
One might even say deadly serious…
Mrs. Bachmann grew up in Waterloo, and used the town as the backdrop for her campaign announcement, where she told Fox News: "Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too."…
The only problem, as one eagle-eyed reader notes: Waterloo's John Wayne was not the beloved movie star, but rather John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer.
To be fair, the actor John Wayne was from Winterset, Iowa, which is only a few hours drive away, starts with a "W" and has three syllables. And the actor John Wayne has killed a whole bunch of people on screen which looks a little like killing people in real life.
So, you can totally see why Bachmann might get confused.
