VIDEO: Michele Bachmann's presidential announcement included some laughably fuzzy math


Relevant segment at about 13:55.

Someone emailed me, isolating one specific quote, one that I wish I'd caught myself, from Michele Bachmann's Big Presidential Announcement:

I am here in Waterloo, Iowa to announce today: We can win in 2012 and we will. Our voice has been growing louder and stronger. And it is made up of Americans from all walks of life like a three-legged stool. It's the peace through strength Republicans, and I'm one of them, it's fiscal conservatives, and I'm one of them, and it's social conservatives, and I'm one of them. It's the Tea Party movement and I'm one of them.

A response from another friend was just perfect: Four out of three ain't bad!

Just add this gaffe to the rest of them, especially the super duper splendid one from a post of only a few hours earlier. Who does she think she is, Sarah Palin?!

Remember, though:  She's not a flake.

    I noticed that NONE of the major networks covered her gaffes, only reporting that she's a legitimate candidate. NO, SHE'S NOT.

    Now there's a gotcha question: how many legs does a three-legged stool have?
