[I]t appears that [Michele Bachmann's] supporters have altered Wikipedia <u>to make it appear that John Quincy Adams was a Founding Father,</u> even though he was only a child when his father John Adams, America’s second President, signed the Declaration of Independence.

Michelle Bachmann also misspoke yesterday, saying that <u>John Wayne was born in Waterloo, Indiana, when in reality John Wayne [Gacy] the serial killer was born in Waterloo, Indiana.</u> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The Wikipedia page for John Wayne was also changed to make his birthplace Waterloo, Indiana, even thought John Wayne was born in Winterset, Indiana.</span>

<span style="color: #3333FF">Sigh. The authoritarian cognitive dissonance that would rather vandalize an online encyclopedia rather than admit that Bachmann's grasp on American History is lacking is frightening.</span>

<span style="color: #990000"><span style='font-size: 14pt'>But what is more frightening is that someone can make these kind of stupid mistakes, double down on them and then still be considered a "serious" candidate and not laughed off the field.</span> </span></div></div>

Being Conservative means NEVER having to admit you are wrong.

Odd that Wikipedia doesn't have these changes in spite of your belief the changes were made?
