Also, Bachmann Would Stand Up to the Soviet Union

“Bachmann tells Waverly IA crowd that were she president, ‘we wouldn’t have an American embassy in Iran.’ The US broke ties w Iran in 1980.” [@JamieNBCNews]

@blogenfreude:Dude – Johnson ran in 68 and he was a hell of a politician. I’m partial also to Fred Harris who ran in 76(?) but dude had no base besides Oklahoma and Indian tribes nationwide. I had him for a class back when I was an undergrad and since then I’ve gotten to know him and his family. Cool fuckin’ dude. Helped score some ancestral lands for my tribe that was a Very Big Deal. Him and Nixon. You could almost make a Neil Young song out of it.
