Once again, Michele Bachmann demonstrates her ignorance of the U.S. Constitution

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican, has an uncanny knack for making almost each of her public utterances more foolish than the one before.

Michele Bachmann has been a god-send to fact-checkers looking for nonsense to refute

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican, will be leaving Congress at the end of the current term, but it remains to be seen if that will put an end to the public pronouncements with which she has been keeping political fact-checkers busy in recent  years. Indeed, Bachmann’s penchant for peddling falsehoods actually has been a big part of her fame, as we see HERE: [F]act-checker Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post noted on Tuesday that with Bachmann’s retirement, he’ll lose some of his best material: “As...
