Epic Fail

Wait, What?

The list of mindnumbingly-stupid things Michele Bachmann has said over the years is fairly extensive but, to my knowledge, none have been quite as stupefying as this.

"You see, there's a reason our Founding Fathers decided to establish our political capital in a different city than our financial capital, because it's time for us to reaffirm the wisdom of that decision by getting Washington D.C., out of free markets. And I'm running for president of the United States because I understand the difference between free markets and a Bernie Madoff style of government."

The founding fathers established the nation's capital in Washington D.C. just to avoid being in the same city as the New York Stock Exchange?

Naked idiocy aside, the fact that Bachmann's own family has benefited extensively from farm subsidies runs counter to essentially everything she just said.

In the words of Keith Olbermann -- "That woman is an idiot."
