Anderson Cooper Wallops Bachmann For 'Flunking History' (VIDEO)

Michele Bachmann was the subject of Anderson Cooper's "Keeping Them Honest" segment last night, for her comments last weekend that to America's diversity-conscious first settlers, "it didn't matter the color of their skin, it didn't matter their language, it didn't matter their economic status."

The segment was subtitled "Flunking History," which Cooper explained was because Bachmann's comments "are either a deliberate rewriting of our history, or signs that she has a shaky grasp on our history."

In her remarks, Bachmann also said that "we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States."

Cooper noted that she declined to appear on the show to defend her remarks, and didn't respond to a request for comment.


Is it me, or does she sound like she's talking to a bunch of kindergarteners?)

Edited to fix html error. :)
