Doesn't she ever shut up?

We've got more inane and silly stupidity from Michele Bachmann, the Republican representative of Minnesota. You can either see the vid, or read the quote:

I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter, and I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence.

Uh ... How old is she? Apparently she wasn't there in the 1970s, or else she might know that it was President Gerald Ford who was in the Oval Office in the 1976 swine flu outbreak. A Republican. (And quite a moderate one at that – in today's world he'd probably be a Democrat compared to the utter loonery the Right has become known for.) Not Carter. Idiot.

Even if she wasn't completely ignorant and massively stupid as to confuse two presidencies (or lie about it, equally possible), it still would've been a liiittle bit of a stretch.

God, how do these morons get in office??
