Her run for president is really really super official now, as Michele Bachmann kicked off her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa with a comparison between herself and a famous Waterloo resident, John Wayne.
Er. Except John Wayne was from three hours away, in nearby Winterset, Iowa. The only John Wayne that lived in Waterloo was John Wayne Gacy, mass murderer and killer clown.
Her campaign has already released a statement clarifying Bachmann's remarks. Wayne's parents met in Waterloo. That doesn't really change much, since it's unknown if John Wayne himself ever set foot in the town.
Anyways, she announced her presidency today and is a big clown. That is all.
