According to NBC News' Jamie Novogrod, when asked about the raiding of the British embassy in Iran at a campaign event in Iowa, Michele Bachmann declared that if she were president, things would be different: "We wouldn't have an American embassy in Iran." That shouldn't be too difficult to pull off since the U.S. hasn't had an embassy there since the Iranian hostage crisis during the Carter administration. This may sound like another gaffe, but it's actually part of Bachmann's new attempt to set herself apart from the other candidates by thinking of ways to protect Americans from threats that don't exist yet. Do you think that Rick Perry has a plan for ending our bitter war with Portugal, or that Mitt Romney's designed an impenetrable colander hat to protect us from the Russians' thought-stealing laser ray? Don't bet on it!
