Rep. Michelle Bachman (R-MN) continued to her stunning ignorance of American history by saying the Founding Fathers signed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights on the same day! Apparently having so little knowledge of even the most basic facts about the founding of our country that she doesn’t understand there were nearly two years between the Constitutional Convention and the drafting by the first Congress of the amendments that would later become the Bill of Rights and another two and a half years before the Bill of Rights were ratified. At this point, Bachmann has shifted the subject of her ranting from Obama’s secularism to taxes, making fear of taxation the reason for the Bill of Rights.
Who exactly is this loon and why did the people of her district of Minnesota vote to send her to Washington DC?
