Here are some fun and interesting facts about Switzerland: it has four official languages, it was not invaded during either world war, and it now counts Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann as a citizen.
Yes, it seems that "Crazy Eyes", as we like we to call her around the office, has decided to follow up her failed presidential bid by applying for European citizenship.
Apparently, Michele's husband, Marcus, was eligible for Swiss citizenship through his parents and the eligibility transferred to her when they married. According to Michele's spokesperson, the Bachmann children, who also qualified through Marcus, wanted to apply for dual American and Swiss citizenship and the couple decided to apply as well so they could all go through the process as a family.
The whole thing was finalized in March, but only made the news now—probably because it will not play well with Michele's Tea-Party base, even with the "for the family" reasoning.
