Marcus Bachmann Announces His Anti-Gay 'First Spouse' Agenda

Marcus_bachmannMarcus Bachmann told the NYT what his agenda would be should his wife be elected President:

“I’ve decided my cause is not going to be happy meals,” he said during a stop at the Family Table Restaurant here, apparently a dig at Mrs. Obama.

“We are going to be the message-givers,” said Mr. Bachmann, who runs a Christian counseling service that has been accused of trying to “heal” gays by persuading them to become heterosexual.

“We are going to get this message across,” he said. “Marriage is between one man and one woman. We are going to promote families.”

  5. You know, he might want to take Michelle's advice...

  6. Instead of slamming Michelle Obama, a sister in his alleged faith of Christianity, for promoting healthy eating . . . something, incidentally, the Bible also mentions . . . Marcus Bachman should consider taking her advice and laying off the happy meals.

  7. Self-hating closet case.

  9. So which one's the man in his marriage?

  10. Well, it looks like somebody's already redecorating the White House. And what is it with that face? He really ought to have a proctologist have a look at those haemarrhoids...

  11. I caught full shade from the choice of the picture. lol

  12. I just don't get it. He is obviously a self loathing gay man who's just upset that he is so ugly that he couldn't get laid by any man so he married a fag hag in need of corrective lenses.

  13. Is he really Chaz Bono's biological father?

  14. Luckily this isn't something we even need to think about. He and his wife seem to be the last people to realize that they're national laughingstocks.

  15. Don't insult Chaz like that.

  16. It's amazing how someone who professes to be a Christian can inspire such deep hatred in others. Bigotry does that to people.

  17. BART, LOL that old Lesbian happens to be the Queen Mother of Minnesota.

  18. It's interesting to consider that the day after the election, everyone in the media and in the political parties will suddenly be asking how they could have promoted this reality-TV-show style of politics for so long. And a couple years later, they will be gearing up for something even worse. Perhaps you will have to have actually been on "Dancing with the Stars" to run for national office. (They're already suggesting that the real reason Mitt Romney doesn't appeal to the Republican base is that he's obviously happily married and isn't a lunatic.)

  19. The pic... every time shows the entire attitude coming from the Bs. Why would he think such things, when everyone knows it will never happen. Go back to your closet (the first time I advice anyone to do so!) and stay there!

  20. Are we SURE "Marcus Bachmann" isn't just Barbara Bush with a stylish new 'do? Because if you picture a string of pearls around Marcia B's neck and you'll start having flashbacks!

  21. Among other characteristics (we can't really refer to them as qualities) he is completely self-negating. Stick a fork in 'em both. They're done.

    Posted by: justinw | Dec 16, 2011 7:16:00 PM

  22. OK boys you can laugh at the picture without calling him ugly and fat. That's demeaning and counterproductive.

    Also calling a self-identified cis person trans is just as offensive as calling a trans person cis.

  23. he should cut back on the happy meals

    Posted by: say what | Dec 16, 2011 7:37:42 PM

  24. Isn't he precious! Yes, he is. He's just so precious.

    Posted by: Seven | Dec 16, 2011 7:47:50 PM

  25. Oh, he speaks as if Michele actually stands a chance of winning the nomination and going on to defeat Obama, how precious.
