    Bizarre to bring it up? This beast brings up her hatred of gay Americans whenever she can.

    It must really suck to be married to a closeted homosexual and be frightened that at any moment he might dump you for some man.

    As she is so frequent to say “she is running for the Presidency of the United States”. Therefore, there are no “gotcha” questions, especially when it comes to statements that have come from her own mouth in a public forum, regardless of how long ago it was.

    The only “gotcha” question for her would be “How long have you known your husband is a homosexual?”

    This women, as well as Santorum, is really sick. Her attitude is that being gay can be changed, that a gay person is held in “bondage” – well, I tell you this much. If my love for my husband is a bondage then I’m one hell of a happy camper. We, as a community, need to wipe the floor with sick right wing fanatics. They belong in mental institutions.

    Gotcha Journalism: A query that you are unprepared to answer factually; or that you know makes you look stupid, incompetent, ill-suited, or bigoted.

    Grow up Bachmann and take responsibility for your words and actions. It’s outrageous behavior as she is the first person to wield a quote from anyone’s past yet she is unwilling to step up and own her own words. Imagine that people will be just as hard on you and hold you accountable for your words as you and your party are on President Obama…imagine. Please follow Ms. yesterday’s news, your 15 minutes are up Palin and go away.

    these people are absolutely disgusting! I don’t generally donate money to candidates but I will donate to anyone running against Bachmann for Congress. She needs to go!

    Damn those journalists, always quoting what people said in the past in order to further their own liberal, fascist agendas! Poor Michelle is going down for the third time, anybody want to hand her a glass of water?

    How is her stance towards gay people off topic when, as president, she would be governing us? Also, her tone towards Soledad O’Brien was condescending.

    I, for one, would love to see Michelle get the nomination. Or Santorum. They would ensure Barack’s re-election only because they would be revealed more broadly as the idiots they really are. Put them out there in the mainstream and let them be pummeled into obscurity. That will surely hasten change.

    When will these reporters learn that Michelle Bachmann will always only talk about what she wants to talk about, that is, she will recite her talking points, regardless of the question? She’s a known quantity, prepare for it, reporters.

  11. Paul R says

    @Tim: fully agreed.

    @Dastius: you make it sound like it’s wrong for reporters to ask reasonable questions about the words and views of a presidential candidate. No one cares about her stale talking points.

  12. Dastius Krazitauc says

    Paul R, if that’s how I make it sound, then I didn’t get my point across well. I think Bachmann, et al, SHOULD be asked those questions by reporters, but those reporters should prepare for the expected deflection and recitation of talking points, and challenge them on it and not let them get away with it. Be tougher. If Michelle Bachmann is asked about her calling homosexuality “from satan”, don’t let her get away with an answer about “Obamacare”.

  13. Pointed says

    If you’re gay, then being involved in the straight lifestyle, it’s bondage. Personal bondage, personal despair, and personal enslavement. And that’s why ALL Repugs are so dangerous.
