As soon as stories are written about a website outlining outrageous things Michele Bachmann has said, the Republican congresswoman from Minnesota provided added fodder. (As if the site was starved for content.)
The nut-job said it was a “interesting coincidence” that the swine flu epidemics of 1976 and 2009 both occurred under Democratic presidents. First off, she’s wrong. (Republican Gerald Ford was president during the first swine flu outbreak.) Secondly, since HIV happened while Ronald Reagan was in office and SARS took place under George W. Bush, is that also an “interesting coincidence?”
Probably not, huh, Bachmann?
