Michele Bachmann claims to be a student. (So do the Taliban.)

That’s what she told Bill O’Reilly: “I’m a student of many years. I’ve studied a number of, a wide berth of topics,” she said.

Of course, no one said she studied them well. Certainly, she could use a refresher course in Revolutionary War history. Also in the history of slavery in America. And in the 1970s swine flu outbreak. And in the relationship between global warming and breathable air. And net neutrality. And the Hawley-Smoot tariff, or as she calls it, The Hoot Smalley Act. The sad thing is, we could go on.

Perhaps the problem is her selective use of teachers with no qualifications to teach their subjects except a love of Jeebus.
