  1. Oy, don’t even get me started on that one. Though actually, I was sorta hoping for a Palin/Bachmann ticket going into the ’12 election, because such a ticket wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell. And even if they were somehow elected, it wouldn’t take long for them to demonstrate what a complete disaster their brand of politickin would be if fully realized. We’d all go through hell to prove it, of course, but proven it would surely be!

    I just don’t know anymore, though. I’m no fan of Obama because he wasted his opportunities to create change by trying to compromise with people increasingly uninterested in compromise. But there’s certainly no Republican among the present crowd who’s worth a damn either, except maybe Huntsman, but he’s a non-starter.

    Might just have to vote for Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame. He’s putting himself forward as an independent write-in candidate and said if elected he’d basically hire Bill Clinton as a consultant and do whatever he advises. I could be down with a third Clinton term. 🙂

  2. The sheer delusion and stupidity of the people arguing against equality really bug me. They have nothing to justify their hate. Most of all, not the Bible. I wish some of them would actually read it. Jesus wasn’t fond of hypocrisy. How about that?

  3. After I posted earlier, someone linked me to a video of a book-signing appearance Bachmann did, where an 8-year-old boy went up to her and said, “Mrs. Bachmann, my mommy’s gay and she doesn’t need fixing.” It was an obvious gotcha moment that the kid’s parent put him up to, but Bachmann’s reaction was interesting to see.

    1. I found the video clip on YouTube.

      I’m honestly not too sure what to think about it. Her reaction was interesting – the nice close up on her face was especially useful – but, honestly, I’m not sure what else she was supposed to do. To some extent, I think the parent almost looks worse than Bachmann does in this video, since the kid clearly didn’t want to do it. Like at all. Though the prompt dismissal pretty much sums up her opinion on the subject I think and then the immediate return to painted-on politician smile. Wow. I hate the system more and more every day.

      And as for hypocrisy, B, it is way too common in the world. And it is the thing that I hate above all else. I’m not sure that I can adequately express how much.
