"It's Boring"

Category: Michele Bachmann

Here is a Michele Bachmann quote at the Value Voters Summit....

"It's not an issue," before walking off and adding, "In fact, it's boring."

And what was she referring to?

Gay Marriage.

You know, I feel like I was duped by the "moralists" who repeatedly stated that same sex marriage would be the end of civilization as we know it. The endless fights and threats and constitutional amendments....all of that for what is now a "boring" topic.

Michele Bachmann was a leader in those fights. She was at the forefront in the Minnesota legislature and she forced the issue in Congress. How many states put through amendments to their constitutions to enshrine discrimination in those documents, only to now have to fight with the courts on its constitutionality.

Now, it's boring.

Bachmann is so condescending about this issue that when same sex marriage advocates are beginning to win the argument, she no longer thinks it is worth her time.

As Bachmann leaves Congress we can only hope that she will be a forgotten piece of history in the fight for the rights of individuals. All the years of bitter confrontation and false rhetoric has been a sham... and Michele Bachmann will, I am sure, offer no apologies.

Bachmann should go down in the books in the same manner as Joe McCarthy...instilling false fear into the public for personal gain.

I am glad you are retiring from Congress, Ms. Bachmann. I wish it could have been with dignity.

Michele Bachmann - Trying To Separate Parody From Reality

Category: Michele Bachmann
Posted: 07/31/14 12:44

by Dave Mindeman

Sometimes it is hard to distinguish parody from truth when it comes to Michele Bachmann. Recently a bunch of liberal sites were duped into believing that Michele Bachmann had said that the administration was going to force undocumented children in Americanized labor camps.

Its not that the statement was outrageous exactly, (although it certainly would be) its that it just "sounds" like something she would say. So everybody took it to be true.

Well, no sooner does that dustup blow over, then she says this on a radio talk show....

"Well, I will tell you from personal experience, we don't have enough foster parents now in the country for the kids in America. We certainly don't have enough foster parents for all of the illegal aliens that the president is trying to bring in right now." The progressive group People For the American Way posted the audio on its Right Wing Watch blog Wednesday afternoon.

Bachmann said that hospitals could "get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody," suggesting that the hospitals could do that research on undocumented children. "A little kid can't say no if they're a ward of the state," said Bachmann. "So here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say no. It's sick."

Bachmann has become the standard for GOP crazy. Pretty soon she will become a verb.

Boy, that Congressman really Bachmanned that statement.

Don't go there. Don't Bachmann that speech.

If you're going to Bachmann the press conference, then you are finished.

Only a matter of time.

RE:Bachmann - I Think Dogcatcher Is Out Of Reach Now

Remember a few days ago when Michele Bachmann wondered why the press didn't ask her about another run for President?

Well here's a clue...

In an interview this week with the host of a conservative radio show, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said the gay community wants to "do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually."

I have heard Bachmann say some pretty off the wall things, but the absolute hate coming out right now is beyond belief.

She didn't stop there...

She then slammed the LGBT community, saying their ultimate goal was "not to allow for diversity of opinion on this issue" but rather to "force everyone to not only agree with them, but also to finance their agenda."

Bachmann, who has the most intolerant ideas of her own, has the audacity to thinky that the LGBT community is somehow dictating the terms on all the discriminatory practices foisted upon them.

How ridiculous. How stupid.

If Republicans have any sense of decency, they will isolate Bachmann into the intolerant cubicle she seems destined to occupy.

Presidential aspirations? I have the feeling Bachmann couldn't win an election for dogcatcher now.
