In other news, Rep. Darrell Issa (R), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, is threatening to eliminate the National Labor Relations Board, and the "Popemobile" is being upgraded to a newer model featuring a hybrid electric engine which will be able to travel short distances with no emissions. Clearly the Pope is in the tank for the liberal-socialist-hoax known as climate change.

  • In other news, Bachmann exaggerated lied when she claimed to have “raised 23 foster children”.

    Bachmann often says she has “raised” 23 foster children. That may be a bit of a stretch. According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Bachmann’s license, which she had for 7 1/2 years, allowed her to care for up to three children at a time. According to Kris Harvieux, a former senior social worker in the foster care system in Bachmann’s county, some placements were almost certainly short term. “Some of them you have for a week. Some of them you have for three years, some you have for six months,” says Harvieux, who also served as a foster parent herself. “She makes it sound like she got them at birth and raised them to adulthood, but that’s not true.”
