'Hardball' Scrutinizes the Bachmann 'Ex-Gay' Therapy Clinic: VIDEO


Equality Matters President Richard Socarides and R. Clarke Cooper of the Log Cabin Republicans join Chris Matthews to talk about Michele and Marcus Bachmann and their positions on gay "reparative therapy".


In related news, the NYT looks at Marcus Bachmann's academic credentials:

Marcus Bachmann, the husband of the Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, focused his graduate studies on the contentious question of whether day care was harmful to young children, and argued in his Ph.D. dissertation that “parents who can do so should delay full-time day care until into the fourth year of a child’s life.’’

And the Daily Caller takes a look at whether Michele Bachmann's migraine headaches might place doubt into her candidacy:

The Minnesota Republican frequently suffers from stress-induced medical episodes that she has characterized as severe headaches. These episodes, say witnesses, occur once a week on average and can “incapacitate” her for days at time. On at least three occasions, Bachmann has landed in the hospital as a result.


“When she gets ‘em, frankly, she can’t function at all. It’s not like a little thing with a couple Advils. It’s bad,” the adviser says. “The migraines are so bad and so intense, she carries and takes all sorts of pills. Prevention pills. Pills during the migraine. Pills after the migraine, to keep them under control. She has to take these pills wherever she goes.”

  4. Her headaches are a side effect of having god constantly talking inside your head.

  5. Her headaches becoming public in the primary are a result of the other Khristians throwing her under the Rick Perry bus.

  6. Perhaps her odd affect is explained by her medication, I have thought she had an odd look/demeanor from time to time, flat and without expression.

    This doesn't excuse her homophobia, that is pure hate on her part but that could be because she is married to a closet gay.
