How Smart Is HuffPo’s Bob Cesca?

The irony is delicious.

Liberal columnist writes HuffPo piece saying Michelle Bachmann is dumb because she “mistakenly linked her campaign with creepy clown/killer John Wayne Gacy.”

Really? When was that?

What she said was that John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. In fact, John Wayne’s parents were married in Waterloo and lived in Waterloo. For all we know there was hot sex at the Morrison home and sometime thereafter the newlyweds moved on to Winterset. Where their son Marion Robert Morrison — aka John Wayne, the future Hollywood star —  wound up being born. Was he conceived in Waterloo? No idea. But that the Morrison family was from Waterloo? No doubt. None. Zip. That’s fact. The John Wayne Gacy business? Total media fiction. She never — not once — confused the two. Never.

Mr. Cesca persists, however, (to borrow his phrase) in “mistakenly linking her campaign with creepy clown/killer John Wayne Gacy.”


Let’s use his own analysis as he applied it to Bachmann:

1.       Cesca is Genuinely Smart but Wrong.

2.       Cesca is Deliberately Ignorant.

3.       Cesca is Un-or Mis-educated

4.       Cesca is Incompetent or Incapable

5.       Cesca is Genuinely Stupid

This is not unlike shooting fish in a barrel.

So what do you think? Liberal journalist reports something that is…ahhhh…mistaken. That makes him ….1? 2? 3? 4? 5?

We report. You decide.
