With material like this, why bother trying to make stuff up in the first place?
If you're a Republican and are wondering why we sometimes have difficultly taking your party seriously, consider that the following paragraphs consist of a real story written about a real elected official who just three years ago was one of the country's foremost GOPers.

Just days after we took liberal websites to task for being duped by fake Michele Bachmann quotes, the real Bachmann went ahead and said something that's just as crazy as anything a satire website could concoct.

Fake Michele Bachmann stories dupe liberal websites

Sure, we like to criticize Michele Bachmann, but only for things she actually says.
Two years ago, the Onion's "Michele Bachmann Thankful No Americans Died In Sikh Shooting" story duped a ton of commenters and social media users. The same thing happened earlier this year in response to a satirical New Yorker piece where Bachmann was "quoted" making ridiculous criticisms of Stephen Hawking.

This time around, liberal media outlets have been fooled by a piece from fake news site KCTV7 entitled, "Michele Bachmann Suggests Labor Camps For Immigrant Children."

Bachmann, on the "gay community": "Their ultimate goal is to not allow for diversity of opinion on this issue."
We already know Michele Bachmann isn't a big fan of gay people. It's also not a surprise to hear her say outrageous right-wing things on the radio. But during an appearance on the conservative Faith & Liberty show last week, Bachmann proved she still has the capacity to open her mouth and stun us.

Bachmann argued that marriage equality represents society's first step down a slippery slope that will end up with adults being "able to freely prey on little children sexually."

-- Update at bottom --

It's the campaign nobody is asking for, but we might get it anyway.

Michele Bachmann was barely able to hold onto her solidly Republican exurban district last election cycle, and in May 2013 she announced she won't run for another term. Yet she still believes she'd be a viable presidential contender in 2016.

Bachmann worries women's museum honoring her will become "shrine to abortion" [VIDEO]

Bachmann speaks during yesterday's hearing.
A website for the proposed National Women's History Museum devotes a page to honoring Michele Bachmann for being a great mother. Nonetheless, yesterday Bachmann was one of just 33 representatives to vote against a bill that would do nothing more than create a bipartisan commission to study the possible construction of a women's museum on the National Mall in D.C. (383 representatives voted in favor.)

"As it's currently written, the legislation lacks the necessary safeguards to ensure that the proposed museum will not become an ideological shrine to abortion that will eventually receive federal funding and a prominent spot on the National Mall," Bachmann said on the House floor.

"The gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they've so intimidated politicians," Bachmann told radio host Lars Larson during a recent CPAC debate.
