Did Michele Bachman confuse John Wayne Gacy for John Wayne?

Today MPR News posted a pretty funny clip featuring presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann invoking the name of John Wayne, a son of Iowa with whom she shares a spirit, she says. Only she says John Wayne is from Waterloo, Iowa - which is actually where the infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy was born. MPR points out that John Wayne, the actor, was born 167 miles away in Winterset, Iowa. Keep the gaffes coming, Michele.

  1. The problem with her issuing statement saying that John Wayne’s parents hailed from Waterloo is that John Wayne's parents were from Nebraska.
