Reason #8,267 Not To Take Wikipedia Seriously

After Michelle Bachmann described John Quincy Adams as “a Founding Father” – which is obviously more applicable to his father John Adams, but could conceivably describe JQA as well – the Wiki on JQA was edited to agree with Bachmann’s statement. This generated even more headlines about the “gaffe.”  Any idiot with a modem can edit Wikipedia for political gain or just on a whim.  Wikipedia is a tale told by an idiot, all sound and fury, signifying nothing.
