Notorious pill-gobbling serial fabricator Michele Bachmann made up a stupid lie about how she went to her family reunion in Iowa and then made excuses to the press when she was late for everything that day on account of attending the reunion, which she did not attend. Klassy! Or did she? All we know is that Michele Bachmann says she was there, Michele Bachmann’s mother says that only Marcus was there, ergo: Michele Bachmann is just Marcus Bachmann in a girdle and a gnarly rubber mask, which makes “sense” in a spine-tingling way. Best/worst Republican drag queen outfit since Rudy Giuliani, is our vote!
OH FINE, here is the SCOOP from POLITICO:
On her victory lap of Iowa yesterday, Straw Poll winner Rep. Michele Bachmann paid repeated tribute to her local roots, and repeatedly mentioned her family reunion that day, citing it as an excuse for her late arrival at a local party event in Waterloo.
But Bachmann’s mother and two cousins told POLITICO’s Emily Schultheis that Bachmann didn’t attend the reunion, though her husband and children did. Her spokeswoman, Alice Stewart, didn’t respond to two emails asking for an explanation of the disparity.
Bachmann told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that same morning that she was looking forward to the reunion.
“We’re having a big family reunion today in northeastern Iowa so I’ll get to go and see all my relatives,” she said.
That pretty much proves our theory. Amazing what a good makeup artist on fistfuls of LSD can do these days. [POLITICO]
