  1. Michele Bachmann, another one of god’s own bigots.

    Nancy Pelosi needn’t worry, Bachmann has a better chance of getting a flight to Alfa Centuri than she has of ever seeing the inside of the White House, never mind the Oval Office fortunately.

    1. I hope you are right, Paddyswurds

        Pink News…just exactly how could Stu reply 54 mins ago to a comment I only made 29 mins ago….Can you please explain,,,,if you can?

        1. Some of my comments appear and they say they were made 60mins prior to me making them and I dont know why

          1. Experience the same maself… only it counts DOWN. So an hour after I posted it, it says 0 minutes ago!

            Come on PN, fix it!

            Guess we have to expect teething probs.. :)

          3. Yeah mine also counts down and sometimes the messages disappear until they have got to 0 minutes (but not consistently)

            Am sure it is a teething problem, but this has also happened prior to the update

      Lets hope your right Paddyswurds coz what I’m hearing from the US is that Michele Bachmann is one of the three top runners for the Republican Presidency candidate.

    Even if she wasn’t in the race for the Republican presidential nomination she should speak up because being bullied to death for any reason is ridiculous. She currently represents this area where this happenned. She should be saying something.

    1. Maybe she’s conflicted.

    Bachmann has never been the same since she was abducted by lesbians:

    Mad.

    I think that the important point here is honesty. She evidently has an opinion and if she has an opinion, why doesn’t she honestly and openly state it? She looks like a hypocrite and a liar at present the way she won’t speak on these things. Is she frightened that the truth of here opinion might show her for the nasty piece of work she is?

    1. Maybe she’s just trying to behave like a real politician and say nothing of any significance.

      1. But of course, she isn’t a real politician, she’s a teabag.

  6. Ahh… another narrow minded stuck-in-the-stone-age lemming… with her own ideology and agenda… One thats filled with hate borne out of narrow mindedness… Typical.

    Another narrow minded bigot.. How can ANY right-minded person not do what they can to stop this terrible waste of young lives from occuring? The problem is that the Republican party all seem to be far-right lonnies now, and the dangerous fact is that she COULD get into the Whitehouse one day!

    These people elected Bush/Chaney remember! (twice!)

    1. Well stricly speaking they elected them once and Fox News fixed the Florida ballot outcome in Bush’s favour in the first instance, but you make a valid point.
      The fact that it was close enough to rig speaks volumes.

    2. I think the only way she’ll get in is to serve the canopés.

    3. Do you think the USA would accept her hilarious husband as First Lady?

  8. Surely the way now to call Bachmann on this is to declare that, since she has consistently declined to condemn homophobic bullying, then it is reasonable to infer that she believes that people who do not comply with her sexual taboos are legitimate targets for harassment and abuse. If she doesn’t bite even then, let defend her who will or dare.

    Clearly Michele Bachman thinks it is correct for people to bully, abuse, humiliate, murder and make life so horrible, suicide is felt to be the only option is acceptable.
    -
    Prehaps she thinks that how the LGBTQI should be treated?
    -
    Should? what am I saying of course she does.
    -
    She is a disgrace as a human being. It just shows the cold blooded bigotry of these people who couldn’t care less what people and esp children go through, or her herself puts them through.
    -
    Then they call themselves religious.

    1. ” Clearly Michele Bachman thinks it is correct for people to bully, abuse, humiliate, murder and make life so horrible, suicide is felt to be the only option is acceptable. ”

      Isn’t that a requirement for being a member of the Teabag Party? Along with marching on Washington with guns when you don’t get your own way?

      1. Jock S. Trap 16 Sep 2011, 2:38pm

        Sounds about right, yeah, sadly! Clearly these people have no heart nor backbone.

  10. The thing is that none of the Republican candidates for President are running to be President for all the people, only for those on the far right.

    Bachmann is a member of the rights recontrusonhest movement which want to over turn democrocy and have religious law based on ther intepretation of what the bible says. No rights for Women as Men are superer, if you happen to be L.G.B.T and wont deniy who you are you will be murdered, if you dont belive in there verson of God you have no say in anything and could be murdered aswell. We larf at these nuts but they realy belive this thay are extremly dangerous misgiyded people and need to be taken seriously befour thay steal your contry. They are Not Christians as they reject the teachings of Jesus.
