SALINA, Kan. - Sometime in the next few months, when the obituary is written for Michele Bachmann's 2012 Presidential campaign, commentators will look back at her announcement and note the seeds sewn for her demise. On that day, June 11, 2011, her habit of playing fast and loose with the truth finally started to catch up with her.
Upon launching her campaign she likened her determination and spirit to that of hometown hero John Wayne. Problem was, John Wayne was from the town of Winterset, IA, three hours away. Bachmann actually shares hometown roots with serial murderer John Wayne Gacy. The mistake brought attention to one of Mrs. Bachmann's glaring faults - her propensity to set facts aside in pursuit of her political goals.
