imageCongresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) responded to criticism about her gaffe in New Hampshire when she said referring to the “shot heard around the world” that those first shots of the Revolutionary War were made in “Concord and Lexington in this state.” Oops, that happened in Massachusetts not New Hampshire.

She was on the Laura Ingraham Show yesterday as was able to respond saying she made a mistake, but then noted a double standard in the press.  Where was all of the reporting on when President Barack Obama said on the campaign trail that his campaign had been to 57 states?

Great question.  You can listen to the interview above.
