This is NOT a good mistake to make while appealing for the votes of conservatives!

Michele Bachmann has had her first Dan Quayle/George W. Bush/Joe Biden moment of the campaign.

It happens to all of them, of course, In 2008, Barack Obama once claimed to have campaigned in all 57 states.

But let it be noted for the record that John Wayne was from Winterset, Iowa. The guy from Bachmann's home town of Waterloo was John Wayne Gacy, the Chicago serial killer.
