John Wayne, After an irresistible rise, Michele Bachmann seems to be experiencing a clash with the political reality after the opening 48 hours of campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination was overshadowed by a blunder of minor scandal and a potentially important small but worrying dip in popularity.
Ms Bachman, a social conservative, fiscal and religious Minnesota, which owes its importance to the Tea Party, the state came in early South Carolina primary yesterday with a simple task: to convince voters that she is “a serious and a serious candidate for president of the United States. ”
She intended to spend the day sketching out a strong political vision. However, the owners were in place at least in part, dominated by an incident in which he had unconsciously itself against a serial murderer known.
The slip of the tongue was in Iowa on Monday, the aptly named town of Waterloo, which hosted its official launch. In a television interview later, she said: “John Wayne was in Waterloo, Iowa This is the kind of spirit I have, too.”
Wayne fans were quick to point the screen cowboy was born and raised in a place called Winterset, 150 miles away. The Waterloo’s most famous son is, in fact, John Wayne Gacy. He is best known as the “clown murderer”, so called, who raped and murdered at least 33 adolescents during the 1970s.
Bachmann’s first reaction, the discovery was to deny any error, arguing that the parents of John Wayne (actor) once lived in Waterloo. But amid jeers every time, later confessed to “foul-mouthed.”
Admission was prejudicial to Ms. Bachmann because, despite her popularity among right-wing Americans to attend the acts of tricorn hats, tea party, which has a bad habit of “speaking ill” with respect the country’s history. In a speech last year, she said the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired in New Hampshire (which was from Massachusetts), and another that suggested, incorrectly, that the founding fathers of the nation abolished slavery.
The mark of an excess of rhetoric extends to their everyday politics. During a television appearance on the weekend, Bachmann was informed that the winner of the Pulitzer Prize website PolitiFact has reviewed 23 of her recent remarks on Barack Obama and found one being “completely true”. Seven of them were outright falsehoods.
Bachmann also still to address a report in the Los Angeles Times this weekend saying that despite its support in principle of limited government, the family farm in rural Wisconsin and 280,000 received in government subsidies between 1995 and 2008. Although he publicly states that “a penny” went to her financial information forms obtained by the newspaper appear to show that it paid dividends of between $ 32,500 and 105,000 and between 2006 and 2009.
Palin back in spotlight
The Sarah Palin show on the road last night as former Alaska governor and her entourage breezed in the state of voting in early Iowa crucial for the premiere of a highly publicized documentary that has a flattering look in your life policy and the times.
In a move that seems designed to fuel speculation about her presidential ambitions, Palin went to the opera house 111 years old, in Pella the first public screening of The Undefeated, which chronicles her rise to fame and the ability of support to inspire the mainstream Republican.
Roads were closed and the parking lots full of satellite vans for the occasion, which was followed by a barbecue. Police expected to bring the streets of Pella, a city of 10,000 residents with at least 36 churches, to a virtual standstill. The organizers prevented the media to attend the screening; critics have meant to get a proper look in the film, rumored to compare Palin to Joan of Arc. In contrast, most of the 340 tickets went to the local population.
“I do not invite all my friends in Hollywood right,” said director Steve Bannon The Hollywood Reporter. “Jon Voight, Dennis Miller, I’ll have a projection for the kids later. In fact, I would like to buy a ticket, but they are so little … And you can quote me on it.”
If Palin were to announce a tilt at the White House, which would be a career long. As fellow tea party favorite Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich have said.
