Brody: You ran pretty much an impeccable campaign, in terms of a mistake-free campaign.The whole interview is terrific. I have no idea whether Bachmann is delusional or just plays delusional on TV, but it's nice, I suppose, that her pose as leader of a nationwide movement has survived intact after it turned out that, well, she isn't. So for example Bachmann claims that her candidacy was responsible for Mitt Romney advocating for ACA repeal, which is, er...not remotely in touch with reality.
Bachmann: Thank you, it really was.
Brody: It pretty much was.
Bachmann: It really was, we were extremely careful, and we were almost mistake free, but for those two points, Elvis Presley's birthday and John Wayne's birthplace. I've apologized, and we moved beyond.
Of course, Bachmann and Brody's claim does raise the more important question: since she was knocked out after getting 5% in Iowa (her "home" state!), exactly how poorly would she have done if she hadn't run such an impeccable, mistake-free campaign?
