The Misfire Heard Around the World

Eden Prairie MN

Manifest Destiny University’s Dean of American Exceptionalism Studies recently announced the presentation of an Honorary History Degree to Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann.

After her latest public appearances however, in which the 2012 presidential hopeful and former roller derby queen displayed a grasp of the subject experts said “wouldn’t get her past the citizenship test,” pundits began to question the legitimacy of her certification.

A statement issued from the University’s Administrative Office only added to the controversy: “An honorary degree is not a diploma, it is not recognition of academic achievement, it does not have a raised seal, and it does not bear the signature of the dean or any faculty member.”

Bachmann has so far declined repeated requests to produce the actual document, yet persists in affirming its authenticity, declaring “It’s as real as my respect for this great country”.
