  1. "A man we need to learn more about . . . " Thomas says at the end. Indeed.

    Bachmann will never win the nomination, but the twisted psychology within the Bachmann clan should make even the teabaggers take notice if Marcus gets more media attention. (Though I suppose one can't underestimate their ability to ignore that anti-gay Michele is married to an obviously self-loathing gay man who's inflicting his diseased views on who knows how many victims. Hilarious except for the fact he's allowed to call himself Dr. of anything but delusion.) FOX will surely avoid him like the plague.

  5. @Mstrozfckslv, really? This is very interesting. PR's own school, talking about science.
    The only universities I know in US are like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, UCLA, Berkeley etc.

  6. @MATT26, Regent University Cristian University founded by Jerry Farwell. This university is best known for their 20 something graduates, replacing career diplomats at the state and justice departments during the Bush Administration. Many of them moving on to make some horrible decisions in regards to Iraq.

  8. This is where standards and practices runs counter to the needs of investigative journalism.

  9. On-line school, Cristian University, oh dear.

    In my country to become a doctor and therapist means 8 to 10 yrs serious studies in medicine at the university. MA takes at least 6 to 7 yrs, again at the university.

    Thanks for the info, I had no respect to Marcus Bachmann and now even less (if it's possible).

  12. GARDAR ALERT: RED-SEVERE...as Usual.

    Those who are most homophobic and speak the loudest are just trying to hide their own desires.
    The more Dr. Bachmann spoke the more the GAYDAR became RED HOT and honed in on this QUEEN!
    If Michelle were elected as President, I think we would still have a FIRST LADY and not a FIRST DUDE.....

  13. He is totally gay and self-loathing. In one respect I feel bad for someone that has locked themselves in that kind of prison on the other hand as he is attempting to inflict misery on anyone he possibly can, he should go to hell.

  18. That this man is even allowed to "treat" patients is horrifying.

  22. Those 23 foster children were a source of income for the Bachmanns. They really know how to feed off of the gov't.

    I can't wait for the 23 to start showing up on tv.

    Posted by: equality now | Jul 1, 2011 9:30:53 PM

  23. No one of her age and profession (or at least ambition) could possibly look after 23 foster children properly, even if they had each one for just a year. That sounds rotten in many ways and doesn't make her sound caring in the least. It makes it sound like they stacked kids like boards to, as someone else said, collect income.

    Posted by: Paul R | Jul 1, 2011 10:05:07 PM

  24. Her wikipedia page says that they got paid a higher daily rate for their foster children because it qualified as therapy for eating disorders. Odd, since he obviously has an eating disorder.

  25. Ah c'mon, you KNOW that all he wants in this big, wide world is to be First Lady; just a gurl with a dream.

    Sooner or later, however, SOMEONE is gonna recognize him at the glory hole and the jig, as they say, will be up. Oh sure, we'll get lots of angry denials first and then...when the vids start showing up...tearful confessions.

    It would be SO fun to watch (the aftermath, not the whole creepy glory hole thing) that I almost hope she had a snowball's chance of getting nominated so we could keep up with the events. Instead, she'll take her hate, he'll take his self-loathing, and they both will slink off to the sewer of their ignominy.
