Presidential candidate, vaccination expert, and executive level fearmonger Michele Bachmann has impressed many during this primary season with her public poise, debate sharpness, and seeming command of facts. Unfortunately, the facts that Michele Bachmann commands are made up facts from Planet Whackadoo that aren't actually true at all. And more and more people are starting to notice.
A few errant statements by a political candidate are to be expected. Political candidates, after all, are required to command an encyclopedic knowledge and vocabulary of everything from economic policy to international relations to Supreme Court rulings during the campaign, but Bachmann has veered further and further from any semblance of fact as primary season approaches. We were among those who noticed that Bachmann's not very best friends with the truth. Now the LA Times has pointed out a few more whoppers in her arsenal.
