Minneapolis,MN: Tea Party darling and presidential candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was in International Falls, MN on an early stop in her campaign seeking the GOP presidential nomination:
Mrs. Bachmann: I'm so happy to be in International Falls, one of my favorite cities. It's my first trip, although I did spend one summer just down the road in Frostbite Falls, MN. I was doing some intern work for State Representative Badenov while I was attending Wasamata University. The representative was most cordial and he had everybody call him "Boris". One of my suite-mates from school worked with me there too that summer, her name is Nell Fenwick. We're still friends to this day.
Mr. Taylor (from Huffington Post): Mrs. Bachmann, those locales and characters are actually fictional and based on the animated cartoon series "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" aren't they?
Mrs. Bachmann: Many items in fiction are based on real people and places. There really was a MASH 4077th unit in World War II, Lucy Ricardo's real name was Lucy. Not to mention the TV series Dallas, that was based on the real town in Tennessee. Plus there really was a boxer named Rocky.
Mr. Taylor: Excuse me congresswoman. MASH took place during the Korean War and the unit number was made up. Lucy Ricardo was a TV character played by Lucille Ball. Dallas is in Texas, not Tennessee, and there were several boxers named Rocky, Rocky Graziano, Rocky Marciano, but Rocky Balboa was also fictional, created and played by Sylvester Stallone.
Mrs. Bachmann: There, you see, I was right.
Mr. Taylor: Right about exactly what?
Mrs. Bachmann: That there are real people that are based on fictional characters.
Mr. Taylor: Don't you mean that there are fictional characters based on real people?
Mrs. Bachmann: That's what I said. History is full of them. Paul Revere, Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan, Uncle Tom and his famous cabin...
Mr. Taylor: Thank you congresswoman for clearing that up for us all.
Mrs. Bachmann: Aunt Jemimah, King Richard Petty of Scotland......
