After a long hard day of wingnutting, what does the family of crazy-eyed Minnesota congresswoman Michele do to kick back? Well, of course, they watch Glee! Are the anti-gay Michele Bachmann and her “Christian counselor” husband Marcus hypocrites, stupid or all of these things?
Justin Bieber disappointed U.S. representative and potential presidential candidate Michele Bachmann at last night’s Time 100 by not showing up — she’d brought copies of his book to sign for one of her older sons, who is a special-ed teacher. But she did delight her other, younger children (she’s taken care of 23 foster kids over the years) by meeting another popular teen icon and singer. At the event last night, at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Bachmann and her husband posed with Glee star Darren Criss and e-mailed the pictures to their children. “We looked for Chris Colfer,” she said, but they didn’t find him. “We don’t watch TV, generally speaking. But the kids were thrilled. What kids don’t watch Glee?” Well, maybe the children of potential presidential candidates who think God sent them to stop gay people from having equal rights? Maybe Bachmann doesn’t know that the main message of the popular teen hit is tolerance, respect, and equal treatment — particularly for gay people. She doesn’t watch TV, after all.
Oh, my goodness. For a handy juxtaposition, we turn to the Dump Michele Bachmann blog:
Support Traditional Marriage!
Barack Obama has instructed the United States Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the federal law that recognizes marriage between one man and one woman.
Is it the tradition in a “Traditional Marriage” for the husband to help his teenage daughter pick her prom dress? Is it also “traditional” for husbands to go on “dad-dates” with their teenage daughters?
Gays are okay as long as they’re just on teevee, right Michele?! The DMB blog also shares this wonderful clip of Dr. Marcus Bachmann on Faith Radio giggling about getting Justin Bieber’s autograph and helping his daughter pick out her prom dress! YAYERZ! ”Prom season!,” said Marcus.
It’s very interesting that Marcus is talking about people being comfortable with and proud of who they are. Strangely enough, that was the theme of last week’s Glee! Here is that Chris Colfer character Michele ‘n’ Marcus were looking for!
I do sincerely hope the Bachmann children are watching.
