Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean ripped into Michele Bachmann on Sunday, calling the Republican congresswoman's prediction that women will vote for Mitt Romney "perfectly ridiculous."

"Frankly, Michele Bachmann has never had much command of the facts and that shows us exactly why," Dean said on "Face the Nation," in response to Bachmann's claim that female voters would turn out for Romney. "Women are terrified of what the Republicans are talking about. They're talking about basically stripping away their ability to have insurance pay for their birth control pills."

Dean continued: "[The Romney] candidacy is a shipwreck and for Michele Bachmann to go on there and claim that women are going to vote for Mitt Romney is perfectly ridiculous."

Earlier on the CBS News program, Bachmann said the so-called "war on women" is a myth concocted by Democrats.

"The myth is there is a Republican war on women," Bachmann said. "There's not a Republican war on women. That's coming from the Obama reelection team."

Bachmann, who endorsed Mitt Romney for president last week after her own presidential bid ended in January, said that women would vote for the candidate most competent to deal with the economy.

"Mitt Romney is competent in spades," she said.

Below, a look back at some of Bachmann's most memorable statements:

Bachmann raised some eyebrows in November 2011 when she claimed she'd never "had a gaffe."

"As people are looking at the candidate that is the most conservative and the most consistent candidate, I've been that candidate. I haven't had a gaffe or something that I've done that has caused me to fall in the polls," Bachmann told Greta van Susteren in a Fox News interview.

The claim was interesting considering her knack for making misstatements.
