Michele Bachmann runs away from reporter
Michele Bachmann has been uncharacteristically quiet since her razor-thin reelection last November, but she emerged loud and proud at CPAC this past weekend to preach to the faithful. Bachmann's speech focused on the Benghazi attack, but also on the lavish lifestyle enjoyed by President Obama, claiming the first family costs taxpayers $1.4 billion a year in "perks and excess."
But it won't come as much of a shock to any Bachmannphile to learn that some of the claims she made in the speech are the opposite of true. It turns out they're mostly based on a self-published book with few citations written by a long-time Republican lobbyist whom the New York Times once compared to Darth Vader.
