Well, we suppose we did on a few occasions, but never mind that.
Thing is, barely has Michelle Bachmann announced that she’s actually running for president and the OgabeFluffers are already in full court press mode about her horrible, inexcusable “gaffe” about John Wayne having once lived in Waterloo, Iowa (which, we’re told, is a state up north that for some reason people with the IQ of collard greens think is important), and he apparently hasn’t!
Clear the front page, film at eleven! What a monumental gotcha! It’s almost as if somebody said that asthma could be cured with breathalyzers, that Austrian is a language, that the U.S. has somewhere between 57 and 59 states, that West Virginia is closer to Arkansas than Illinois is, that Iran is a tiny insignificant country followed by, 24 hours later, saying that it’s a grave threat, that the Selma civil rights march somehow made his parents beget him three years before the march, that president Bush’s response to 9/11 made Hugo Chavez get elected three years prior to the attack of the towers, that 11 people dead in Kansas is ten thousand dead, who claims his uncle liberated Auschwitz, which would come as a big surprise to the Russians unless his uncle actually served in the Red Army (which would actually not be all that surprising) etc. etc. etc.
Of course, that never happened. Nobody could be THAT stupid! And if somebody actually were to say something that Cosmically Cluefucked, the media would be all over is ig’nant ass. They certainly wouldn’t be constantly hailing the hayseed cretin as the “smartest president who ever lived.” After all, this is the same media who proclaimed Dan Quayle the dumbest ape ever because he misspelled “potato.” Once.
So what does this have to do with the Make Believe Media’s usefulness?
Simple, really. The fact that they’re going absolutely nuts over Bachmann’s notion that John Wayne once lived in a town where his parents actually lived tells us all we need to know about whether Bachmann is worth supporting or not. Only somebody who freaks them out, scares them shitless and makes them vomit in their venti lattes with terror can possibly be worth supporting.
So thanks, Ogabemedia, we’re all in for her now.
