  2. Did she run and hide in the bushes again? Like when a lesbian confronted her with serious question in the bathroom.

  4. Okay, we're going to have to start having serious glitter bomb classes for these people. Not one of these politicians has had a single flake of glitter land on them... glittering a table is no fun... get it in their hair and it's not coming out for weeks! Come on people, put some weight into it!

  5. The guy who nailed Newt Gingrich did a much better job. Glitter Bomb 101: the glitter comes from above and lands on their hair.

  7. Keep going! I love these glitter bombings! But try to get it on the target...

  9. @Joe you're confusing two different events. She hid in the bushes when the there was a LGBT rally in front of the state house (all she had to do was stand up and watch). When running from the restroom after a lesbian tried to talk to her, she was asking for the police.

  10. That was more like a fairy dusting than a glitter bombing.

  11. @Mike In The Tundra
    Ah my bad, thanx for the clarification.

  12. Half a handful of glitter? That barely made it to Michelle?

    This was a big FAIL. I'm not sure Michelle even noticed. She was too busy waving. It had no wit. I feel like glitter bombing the glitter "bomber".

  13. her husband is the living glitter bomb!

    check out his youtube video.


    he's all HI!GURL HI!

    a future "haggard" if I ever saw one.

  14. Will “glitter bombing” politicians do anything to advance the cause of equality? There is no question that attitudes in this country are changing. According to a CNN poll taken two months ago, 51% of respondents said that gay marriage should be recognized. Other recent polling supports this figure. Like it or not, equality is going to come through ballot initiatives and not through judicial action. Therefore, the way the GLBT community is viewed by independents and moderates (who more times than not swing elections) is going to be crucial in winning change. Public spectacles will do nothing to alter minds or swing voters who are not already solidified in their position.

    So go ahead and feel good every time someone gets glittered. But realize that actions can have unintended consequences.

  15. Again...

    Wingnuts disrupt Nutroots = bad
    Moonbats disrupt Bachmann = good

    Got it.

    Although, it couldn't have happened to a nastier shrew. Maybe someone should throw condoms at her next.

    Actually, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to commission a mini-pride parade to follow her *everywhere* she goes in public. The media would eat it up.

  16. This is a pathetic trend that just looks silly. Nobody is going to change their opinion of anything based on some twit throwing glitter.

  17. It will frighten her and make her more paranoid than she already is. people will see she can't cope. This is good

  18. I'm with CJ and Craig -- the glitter bombing trend seems misguided and quasi-violent to me. The targets have certainly all been worthy of protest, but what these actions leave us with is an awkward, ambiguous scene that doesn't help our cause any. If someone from their side pulled this stuff with us we would be FURIOUS. To me it feels like the "glitter-bombers" are just looking for attention.

  19. A Claymore mine would be better.

  20. This needs to high tech. There are glitter guns available on Amazon.com for under $5

  21. Echo Tim.

  22. Next time glitter her closet queen husband.

  23. The glitter bombs need some freedom ring shrapnel.

  24. Craig is right: this does nothing to promote a cause. It may make you feel better but negates from the positive effects of ordinary sons/daughters/brothers/sister/etc coming our calmly and with dignity. Glitter is stupid.

  25. When deaiing with this woman glitter is not enough! I suggest Holy water - then stand back and watch here melt. Then we'd just have to watch out for her flying monkeys!
