Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was surely confused Monday when she suggested she had the "spirit" of a serial killer.

"Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too," she told Fox News prior to the official announcement of her candidacy in Waterloo.

Conservative newspaper The Washington Times was first to point out that the presidential hopeful had picked the wrong John Wayne.

"Waterloo's John Wayne was not the beloved movie star, but rather John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer," Stephen Dinan wrote.

Is this the worst campaign roll out ever?
