It would be a gratuitous cheap shot for me to mention Michelle Bachman's hilarious gaffe yesterday, where she claimed that her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, was also the birthplace of John Wayne, when it was actually John Wayne Gacy, the clown-faced serial killer. I'm not going to stoop to chortling over the silliness of it all, since it's irrelevant to her qualifications to be President and happens to us all sooner or later. I'm not even going to speculate on the professionalism and expertise of her campaign staff, that they could let something like that get by their crack research staff and be actually passed through those heavily sticked lips, or further speculate on whether her ability to assemble such a team would indeed reflect on her qualifications. Because I'm just not that kind of guy. I'm fair and balanced.
