Michele Bachmann portrays herself as an uber patriotic American. Why then, does she know so little about American history? That's just one of many questions. I thought that ALL kids learned about what happened at Lexington and Concord (Massachusetts) in grade school. But assuming for the moment that Bachmann forgot (or didn't know) in which state the "shot heard round the world" originated, why didn't anyone on her staff catch such an obvious mistake prior to Bachmann delivering her high profile speech in NH especially since the speech was widely viewed as an attempt to test the waters of a presidential run? NationalJournal.com - A History of Michele Bachmann's Grasp of History - Monday, March 14, 2011 Frankly, I find the anti-intellectual element of the GOP to be a little scary. Our gov't doesn't need to be run by people who reject objective truth in favor of blindly believing whatever suits them at any given moment. After all, that's how Bush got us into the quagmire of Iraq looking for nonexistent WMDs.
