Michele Bachmann has recently made a few interesting historical claims that are either clear evidence of her incompetence (or proneness to make public gaffes), or an example of a biased media out to get her (depending on one's political persuasion, of course.) Conan O'Brien mined this to an appropriately absurd level last night, in presenting his own vision of how this should play out: The Michele Bachmann History Channel!
As is very often the case, the concept of the sketch is funnier than the execution. But purely from a political perspective, it seems clear that the Bachmann vs History meme will be a persistent one for her to overcome in the coming year.
