Bachmann Hearts John Wayne

Now this is truly hilarious. Michelle Bachmann announced her presidential bid in Waterloo, Iowa on Monday and she told a reporter that she was only following in the footsteps of conservative icon (and complete fraud) John Wayne, who was also born in Waterloo.

“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.”

Except John Wayne is from Winterset, Iowa, about three hours away. But guess who IS from Waterloo, Iowa? John Wayne Gacy. Brilliant. Bloody brilliant.
