Yes, she really said that. As CityPages’ Aaron Rupar reports, the woman who the AP gave up on fact-checking because she “was so full of shit, the AP would’ve needed round-the-clock staff to check all the claims she made” said this in an interview yesterday at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia:
“If you are a conservative you can never get anything wrong. I was very proud of the fact that I didn’t get anything wrong that I said during the course of the debates. I didn’t get anything wrong and that’s a huge arena.”
Rupar acknowledges that Bachmann may just have been “flashing her rarely seen sense of humor” with the statement, and who knows, maybe she is the Andy Kaufman of politics? And the beauty of it is…we can never know.

And this, Dear Wonkeratti, would appear to mark the peaceful end of the Glorious People’s Blogging Collective Of Zoom, because when it comes right down to it, we are less of a Che Guevara than we are a Waylon Smithers. Thanks for a fun day of blogwar and japery! We look forward to resuming our happy life of sycophancy when Your Editrix returns tomorrow. Bet you a dollar she hasn’t finished grading those papers, though.
