That's why she is idiotic, she doesn't question anything. Hell she knew how Merle was, how can she forget so fast.
I don't see it as idiotic. I see it as tragic. Does no one remember how devastated she was at the CDC when they realize that there was NO hope left? She wanted to die. And the one person who made her stay alive ended up dying anyway. She so desperately needed Woodbury to be the sanctuary she thought was lost that she ignores what Michonne says - which was a pathetic excuse for reasoning anyway. Yes, should could - and should - have investigated the claims made by Michonne, but that brings up back to how desperately she needed the lie of Woodbury to be true. It's only idiotic if you forget that Andrea doesn't know everything WE know.
