I was reading an article in the New York Times today, about the newly-declared Presidential candidacy of Michelle Bachman, when I came to the ending paragraphs. This is priceless…

Mrs. Bachmann, who rose to prominence with her evocative quips and spirited presence in television interviews and appearances at Tea Party rallies last year, has also experienced a string of gaffes. She added a new one to the list during her visit back to Waterloo, a city that she left in 1968.

She spoke adoringly of her town, recalling the Dairy Queen, her house on East Ninth Street and the Wonder Bread Factory, where her mother picked up ingredients for her favorite mayonnaise and lettuce sandwiches. But as she stood in her old neighborhood, she misstated a piece of Iowa lore as she explained the important role that Waterloo had in shaping her character.“

John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa,” Mrs. Bachmann told Fox News’ Carl Cameron in an interview. “That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.

”The actor was actually born in Winterset, Iowa, which is about 150 miles southwest of Waterloo. It was John Wayne Gacy, known as the killer clown who raped and murdered 33 teen-age boys in the 1970s, who had lived in Waterloo.

Maybe she WAS referring to the John Wayne who lived in her town… Yikes!

The Freak Show Presents: Charlie Sheen’s 20/20 Interview

Well, by now you have either seen the Charlie Sheen 20/20 Interview or heard the best lines quoted and used as stand-up comedian bait. Or you’ve heard about the interview from your friends and/or co-workers. Or all of the above. The fact is, like Britney Spears getting her head shaved, or Tom Cruise’s couch-jumping, the Freak Show has pulled into town and everyone’s slowing down to rubberneck at the scene of the horrible, ghastly, “I can’t look, but I can’t not look!” accident of another celebrity gone brittle under the spotlights.

Poor Charlie Sheen. He’s hooked on a drug he calls “Charlie Sheen” and he can’t get free of that, no matter what he does. Trashing hotel rooms doesn’t seem to help. Poly-relationships, alleged sobriety, and a sudden belief-in-self that makes Scientology sound plausible
