JOE BIDEN IS CONFUSED  8:56 pm March 15, 2011

Michele Bachmann: Reporting On Dumb Things I Say Proves Media Bias

by Riley Waggaman

Michele Bachmann, just tryin' on the latest Springtime Fashion (Ugg boots not shown)Heartfelt chuckles and patronizing sighs were enjoyed by all when Michele Bachmann told a New Hampshire crowd on Saturday, “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.” (New Hampshire is also the state where United States Marines “raised the flag at Iwo Jima.”) It was an honest mistake — only a fool would believe that someone in China could hear musket shots fired in New Hampshire approximately 1,000 years ago. But alas, the media reported this gaffe anyway, proving once and for all that there is a blatant liberal bias in the media. Michele Bachmann is hardly surprised though, since she’s already well aware that “the 3,400 members of the mainstream media are a part of the Obama press contingent,” whatever that means. This news story is a bias within a bias, which is the plot of Leonardo DiCaprio’s next romcom thriller.

But can Michele Bachmann support her whining with evidence? You better believe it:

Bachmann highlighted moments when President Barack Obama misspoke as a candidate. In one instance, in May 2008, then-Sen. Obama said, “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.”

Later in the day, Obama told reporters that he misspoke.

Bachmann suggested that helps prove a liberal media bias.

“Of course, that wasn’t considered newsworthy,” she said of Obama’s remarks.

Are you sure about that, Michele? “Obama says there are 57 states” turns up about 15,900,000 results. But what the dickens? There’s only 11,000 search results for “Michele Bachmann has a STD in her brain”!

So basically there is a huge pro-Michele Bachmann bias in the Jew-run mainstream Islamic homosexual media, and Peter King must investigate Michele’s brain STD before there is another 9/11, the end. [CNN]

CNN, that's moment, no 's'; and Michele, the fact that you can count Obama's major gaffe on one finger is why yours get reported on a lot more.

DustBowlBlues March 15, 2011 at 10:09 pm

See? Proves it. His millions of gaffes are all covered up by the lamestream media.

mumbly_[redacted] March 16, 2011 at 8:43 am

Also, I'm pretty sure that connotation of the word "gaffe", which implies unintentionality or an error originating in clumsiness, rules out prepared remarks to New Hampshire that get New Hampshire history wrong this badly. She clearly *thought* it was New Hampshire, until the Lamestream Media pointed this out.

This isn't hard: she was speaking in New Hampshire, and said "you". Replace "you" with "Massachusetts" and her speech is incoherent and makes no sense in its context (speaking/pandering to New Hampshire)- not that that strictly rules out it being a normal Bachmann speech, but calling such a thing a "gaffe" is an insult to Bidens everywhere.

BerkeleyBear March 16, 2011 at 9:49 am

She actually said the line on consecutive days as part of a prepared speech. Then insulted Massachussetts by claiming NH was where they still care about Lexington and Concord (and bashed Obama while admitting she uses teleprompters too, just for the hell of it). Not a gaffe – more like proof she is the inspiration for Ron Burgundy.

OneDollarJuana March 16, 2011 at 11:02 am

Remember that New Hampshire and Massachusetts were not the United States back then, thus they were effectively the same to the Brits, a foreign country. Ipso facto, Lexington is in NH.

The_Great_Gazoo March 15, 2011 at 11:47 pm

I suspect that, in this case, the blood-brain barrier is not particularly resistant to infiltration by a whole host of infections. Therefore, I would advise her against sucking on Dick Morris's toes, lest she get some sort of esophageal fungus that easily crosses over. Or maybe that's the problem here already?

After seeing her State of the Union rebuttal speech I am pretty sure that she spent her whole time in high school history, looking to the right of the chalkboard.

The_Great_Gazoo March 16, 2011 at 12:18 am

That's very funny Babs. But, in all seriousness, if her teacher had hung the portrait of Founding Father Ronald Reagan someplace else other than to the right of the chalkboard we might not even be having this discussion.

MilwaukeeKent March 16, 2011 at 4:00 am

That or maybe she has a glass eye. I had a boss years ago who was one-eyed and a coworker clued me in to the nasty trick of looking him in the glass eye when talking to him and it did indeed throw him off. Didn't stop him from asking if he could urinate on my head. I'd tell him he couldn't and he'd suggest I could urinate on his head which met with a similar rebuttal. Apparently no one can bring themselves to tell Bachmann she can't run for president because plainly she spends most of her time on a distant planet, but they'd be doing her a favor and saving her a lot of embarassment.

Tundra Grifter March 15, 2011 at 9:16 pm

First of all, Mr. Obama was referring to the number of Democratic Presidential primaries. Actually, there were only 56. Yes, he said "states." It was a mistake and he admitted it.

Ole Crazy Eyes said " “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.” That simply makes no sense. If the shot was "heard 'round the world" then it wasn't heard at Lexington or Concord, now was it?

Additionally, how could "a shot" be fired in two places at the same time? Not to mention "You're the state…" Although, clearly, her natural state is confusion.

"One 'L'" ("What the L?") Michele should know the words by heart:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled.
And here the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard 'round the world.

Really listen to the what Duh Gov'Nuh says – won't make much sense, either.

教授 Zoom March 15, 2011 at 11:25 pm

I'm fairly sure it wasn't a reference to 57 primaries, but an even simpler "I'm so tired I can't remember my name" moment, where he meant all but one of the continental states. Brain starts with a familiar phrase "all 50 states" and then flubs the downshift. See also the Snopes article.

BaldarTFlagass March 16, 2011 at 8:37 am

Snopes is a Soros plant. I know because it was reported here that it was reported at some right-wing website.

Andrew Drinker March 16, 2011 at 9:08 am

No, it was reported in an forwarded email screed complete with Comic Sans and Pedobear animated GIF signature!

Beowoof March 16, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Well if you debunk conservative, neocon, republican bullshit then you must be a left media operation. Facts have a known liberal bias.

TrollsRUnion March 16, 2011 at 9:00 am

I don't know, Grifty. Because of Barry 'misspeaking' (as if he does anything unplanned!) I think we should forgive all conservative gaffes past, present and future.

By the wee, why did he really say 57 states? Because maybe that's how many states there are in the country of Africa?! Hm? Hm? Check and MATE, sir!

OC_Iodide_Surf_Serf March 16, 2011 at 10:38 am

He meant to say Heinz 57 cause he was wanting some lunch.

At least when and if Barry ever 'misspoke' we didn't invade the wrong country…

TrollsRUnion March 16, 2011 at 10:46 am

Can you imagine (without going into sweats) an actual MB presidency, we'd probably end up invading Greenland instead of Iceland or something. "I always mix those two up! But remember when Obama said 57 states?!" Forget about the diff between Iran/Iraq, Libya/Liberia, etc.

And she home schools her own kids as well as foster children!

Tundra Grifter March 16, 2011 at 2:34 pm

I'll Check but I refuse to Mate. #1. Too nautical. #2. I'm married.

OneDollarJuana March 16, 2011 at 11:10 am

how could "a shot" be fired in two places at the same time?

It's the same as Schrodinger's Cat. Until the shot was actually heard, it couldn't be determined if it was in Lexington or Concord, and in fact, until it was heard it was two shots. That's why quantum physics is so Revolutionary!

Why the hell aren't her staffers making sure she has the facts straight? What the hell are they doing for her? Lazy-ass federal employees…

trampndirtdown March 15, 2011 at 10:34 pm

I've felt that for a while now certain staffers, having a quality college education, are laughing up their sleeves at incompetent pol's. Having watched the "boss" read through the speech transcript and not said anything about the gaffe section my theory is the staffers shrugged their shoulders and said go get em.

Lionel[redacted]Esq March 16, 2011 at 12:25 am

Actually, doesn't she have horrendous turnover with her staff? If I remember right, no one can stand working for her for longer than a year.

glamourdammerung March 16, 2011 at 12:53 am

It is the higher level ones that tend to leave quickly too.

However, the media seems shy to mention the numbers on the turnover, other than "a lot". Must be that pesky "liberal media" I keep hearing about, since it is about the right time for the leprechauns and other fictional creatures to make appearances.

mumbly_[redacted] March 15, 2011 at 9:17 pm

Yes, flubbing and saying the word "fifty" when you meant "forty" in extemporaneous remarks is totally the same as giving a prepared speech, presumably written by a speechwriter who graduated college high middle school, without anybody realizing that the original Lexington and Concord were in Massachusetts, and that New Hampshire, the state you're attempting to pander to, (and every other fucking state in the country) named cities after them in homage.

Hell, when I was a kid I thought that Welch's made jelly with some kind of defeated fruit called "Conquered Grapes."

Difference between me and 'Chele is that I grew up and am now aware that the grapes were named for their military utility in George Washington's cannons, where they were originally known as Concord Grapeshot.

donner_froh March 15, 2011 at 9:36 pm

Dear Michele: You were in New Hampshire when you made that stupid mistake. You were there because that's where the first primary is held. When politicians go to New Hampshire to campaign they spend most of their time telling doddering old skinflints and yupped-out forty-somethings how wonderful they and their state is and always has been.

As long as you kiss their white asses you can say all the stupid crap you want about everything else and no one who votes in N.H. will notice. But when you fuck up the easy, basic stuff then you are screwed.

NOW do you get it, Ms. Shit-for-brains?

But she meant to say Massachusetts! As in "Over there in MA, a shot or two was fired at a specific place." Um ok, why would you even bring that up? Did she mention occurrences in all other neighboring states, and if so, why did she then leave out the Granite State?

You didn't mean to say Massachusetts, you meant to talk about NH and have no fucking idea about anything.

Badonkadonkette March 16, 2011 at 12:16 am

It bears mentioning, often, loudly, and biliously, that Meeshel ALSO said "the very founders . . . [who] worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. . . . men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished." JQ Adams was not a "founder." His dad was. Look it up. He also didn't end slavery, any more than John Adams, who was a founding father, did. And the media has barely whispered about that fucktarded fuckup. Nor have they dwelt on the blatantly racist statement by Huckabee that Obama was raised by his father and grandfather in Kenya where he was indoctrinated with an anti-British sentiment. Which Huckabee blamed on "a slip of the tongue." Except Obama was raised by his mom and step father, not his father, and – for a few years – in Indonesia, which was a Dutch, not British colony.

Yeah, the media has a bias. It's called a "being lazy chickenshit know-nothings who parrot whatever dangerously idiotic meme teatards shit out of their mouths without even so much as pulling up Google to do a fact check" bias.

In a motion for reconsideration in the case, Taitz said that she "cannot state with certainty who paid Dan Lacey, however it is common knowledge that billionaire George Soros, one of the biggest backers of Obama, through his organization Moveon.org, has commissioned numerous artists to promote Obama and denigrate his opponents and critics."

He marveled in one of his Rewrites at the utter ignorance by which this loon operates, with a staff that failed to correct the geography gaff so that she repeated it a day later, and voters who returned her to office with 52% of the vote.

Calling her and her enablers "ignorant" gives her too much credit. It's like labeling Dohbya and Palin as "incurious." It suggests they have the faculties all to do better, but they're lazy, not crazy nor too lame to comprehend, as the case may be, and is.

I wish I could attribute this correctly, but I don't remember who it was who described this ilk as "*aggressively* ignorant".

She is living proof that the Republicans are an Al Qaeda plot. Seriously. How better to destroy us than to put these hyper-patriotic pap smears in positions of power? I ask you.

"But alas, the media reported this gaffe anyway, proving once and for all that there is a blatant liberal bias in the media."

In related news, thermometer blamed for temperature.

"only a fool would believe that someone in China could hear musket shots fired in New Hampshire approximately 1,000 years ago. "

They must be plenty old by now.

"Bachmann highlighted moments when President Barack Obama misspoke as a candidate."

In other words, this millennium's version of, "But the REAL problem is that Clinton got a blow job!!" I was wondering when they'd get around to updating that.

Obama makes a slip of the tongue about numbers, but she and her gang routinely lies about them (how many gazillion dollars did Obama spend in India? Hidden zillions of health care money? and so it goes)

Bachmann is in overdrive…Her slanderous comments against the Obama Administration are racially charged and completely uncalled for. See what she pulled this time @imeanwhat http://bit.ly/fNAWow

Trivia: Washington State was almost named "Columbia", after the Columbia River, but it was decided not to do this for fear that it would be confused with the District of Columbia.
