Bachmann Time Turner Overdrive

Michelle Bachmann reverses time twice in one week.

Bachmann ... saying Franklin Roosevelt turned a recession into a depression through the "Hoot-Smalley" tariffs: ... the tariff referred to here was actually the Smoot-Hawley bill, co-authored by Republicans Sen. Reed Smoot of Utah and Rep. Willis Hawley of Oregon, and signed into law by President Herbert Hoover.

Interestingly, this speech also happened on the same day as when Bachmann connected the 1970s swine flu outbreak to Democrat Jimmy Carter being president, even though it was actually Gerald Ford in office at the time.

This post is totally pointless. However the title will be screamingly funny to everyone else who is familiar with both of Bachman Turner Overdrive and "Harry Potter an the Prisoner of Azkaban"
