John Quincy Adams was nine years old in 1776. (From Good Morning America today.) I don't think in any stretch of the imagination he can be called a "Founding Father."
And from yesterday:
Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has a thing for John Wayne. In an interview yesterday with Newsmax, she said she wants to live in “John Wayne’s America.” And in the Iowa town of Waterloo today, where she announced her presidential candidacy, Bachmann told Fox News, “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.” But unfortunately . . . the John Wayne born in Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, the notorious serial killer who murdered 33 teenage boys and young men, not the iconic Western actor. Watch it.
Edit: Oh, yeah. I forgot that Tom Petty told her to quit using "American Girl" as part of her campaign. (Which, by the way, was the song the gal was singing right before she got kidnapped by Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.)
