Definitely No US History Major

Tea Billie darling Michele Bachmann is many things but US history buff doesn't seem to be one of them. Speaking in New Hampshire, the state with the first primary, she decided to show off her ignorance in front of a crowd of a few local Conservative activists.
"What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty," the potential GOP presidential candidate said. "You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals of man in 5,000 years of recorded history."
Oops, seems that Ms. Bachmann might want to add US history to the Constitution class she provides to US House members as last time I checked the battles of Lexington and Concord were in Massachusetts but why let facts get in the way?

Can you say President Bachmann?
