Bachmann Confuses John Wayne With John Wayne Gacy (VIDEO)

Embarrassing Failure: The Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has confused in an interview the world famous western hero John Wayne and a series of the same killer.

After she announced in her hometown of Waterloo (Iowa) on their ambitions for the White House, she told the station FoxNews that Western legend John Wayne also came from the city. "This spirit lies within me," she told the conservative stations.

The newspaper "Los Angeles Times" determined, however: The most famous is John Wayne from Waterloo, John Wayne Gacy, who in the 70 years killed more than 30 young men and their bodies hidden in a shed at his home. Western hero John Wayne, whose real name was Marion Morrison, comes from the region, meanwhile, Winterset, also in Iowa, but 160 miles further south.

Bachmann conceded on Tuesday for the confusion. However, they have "promised" in short, they told the television channel CNN. "People make mistakes, and I wish I could every time I say something, to be perfect, but I can not."

The Patzer remembered the former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who in the past several years caused by significant gaps in knowledge and other missteps for attention. The average of several polls show that Bachmann is in the race of potential and actual Republican presidential candidate for the 2012 election is currently in fourth place, as the political website realclearpolitics.com determined. Mitt Romney is at number one, followed by - Sarah Palin, which is taken up but not yet.
