She sounds like a very lovely person, which is sort of a shame. Because if she weren't, I'm sure that she could pen a very interesting tell all book.

Lesbian sister, eh? Is that what Marcus is calling himself now?

So Michele has first hand knowledge about the topic and it's effect on the family?

I always feel sad for the family members of politicians who

The Stealth Hippopotamus: So Michele has first hand knowledge about the topic and it's effect on the family?


Seems like she knows how to be utterly horrible to family members who were just living their lives, quietly, even, thus, negatively impacting the family.

What an awful woman.

The Mist was on last night and I couldn't help but see the similarities between Bachmann and Mrs Carmody:

During the Republican presidential primaries this year, she got caller ID

gay issues aren't really an issue, here in 1991.

great article
and the GOP is wondering what is tearing america apart?
assholes like bachmann and their pogrom

Which makes it that much more shameful since she knows damn well that it's had zero effect.

Yes. And she's ignoring what she knows, in deference to a fantasy she chooses to believe.

That poor, deranged woman.

well. It does tear families apart still. From the article:

"She didn't want to play that game or upset her family, which has been divided on same-sex marriage."

So there's that. Poor girl. I would purposely make Thanksgiving awkward. "...And dear lord, please bless our family, even if there are two dirty lesbians in our midst..." Fark you Michelle.

I'm a jerk though

Gay sister. Gay husband. And still a homophobic whackjob.

MadAzza: Also, thanks for a compelling read, Submitter.


This. That made me pretty sad for her.

I've got a sister who is like that too. She doesn't see the glaring disconnect between "loving" our gay niece and believing she's an evil deviant who is going to Hell. "Oh, I love her! I just hate her lifestyle! It's not up to me to judge her. God will do that."

She's surrounded, the poor thing.

Clearly it's Helen's fault that Michele is a hateful, bigoted biatch.

I'm so glad I chose to be attracted to the opposite sex, it spared my family from being turned into douchebags.

Wow, Michelle Bachmann's sister is pretty masculine looking, even for a lesbian.
 
2012-10-15 07:08:40 PM  
So Michelle is kinda cougary. Is her sis hot?
 
2012-10-15 07:21:35 PM  
Geez. I dunno how I'd deal with someone in my family if they were like Michele who considers gays evil and indoctrinating and also managed that 'gay treatment' facility. I'd just walk out and probably live at the opposite end of the country. And this comes from someone who is bisexual. Glad my family has been "Well we support you." with me.

Family values, indeed.

Should have just pushed her down the stairs instead of writing that letter, Helen.
 
2012-10-15 07:28:09 PM  
So I guess Thanksgiving is going to be interesting this year.
 
2012-10-15 07:28:39 PM  
Michele Bachmann would do anything she believed God told her to do & that includes killing her (step) sister by breaking her heart.


and that's the problem with Conservatives, they will do anything for a vote, anything to anyone.
 
2012-10-15 07:29:25 PM  
Subby wins an internet for this. It's a great read.

And I think this just proves that Michele is a sick bastard who's probably using her platform to hide her husband's homosexuality or maybe even her own.
 
2012-10-15 07:30:13 PM  
Wait, wait - so they're not related by blood; they met, they formed a bond, they got close, they used to hug and say "I love you" - and then Helen met someone else. And all of the sudden, Michele became virulently anti-gay.

I think I see the problem here. Jealousy is such an ugly emotion.

I sure hope there is a God because when Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann and their ilk die, their soul will wake up to be greeted by Osama Bin Laden. They'll ask Osama, "Hey, how did you get into heaven?" Osama will reply, " Ummm.......". And the lulz will be epic.

FTA, The bottom line:

"And while she never doubted that Michele was being true to her private convictions, she couldn't comprehend Michele's need to make those convictions so public, to put them in the foreground of her political career, and to drive a wedge into their family."

It's not that difficult. Michele doesn't like your lifestyle and has a hard time coming to grips with her relationship with you. She can't very well lash out at her sister, so she lashes out at all the other gay and lesbian Americans she can.
 
2012-10-15 07:45:29 PM  
That really gave me a sad. Helen is a better person than me. If Bachman was my sibling I'd have a hard time holding my tongue. Interesting seeing which of those sisters is a better Christian.

I was working as a waiter at an event Bachmann was at and my overwhelming thought was that this woman is not getting ANY at home-If you know what I mean. I wanted to step up and alleviate her problem, but Marcus was on her like glitter on a fairy. I couldn't get close enough to try anything. Nice rack BTW. Michelle, not Marcus.

Neither of which would have anything at all to do with why all 23 of her foster children have been teenage girls.

Even Dick Cheney wouldn't stoop to this level.

My dad married some women but I wouldn't necessarily refer to their offspring as "my brothers" (except for my brother).

Regardless, Michelle Bachmann is a crazy hatemonger...

She hopes to marry Nia in Minnesota someday. I asked if she would invite Michele to the ceremony.

She fell silent a few seconds, then shook her head. "I don't think it would be a very good fit," she said.


I'd invite her anyway. Even if she didn't show up, maybe you still get a gift from her.
Of course, it'd probably be a weekend pass to one of Marcus's pray the gay away camps.

Has it ever occurred to you how pathetic it is that that's the first thing you think about? Rather than a substantive discussion of people's rights and obligation to family, you only care if you'd watch her dive into another woman's vagina.

I just think it's sad that some people have so much hate in their hearts.
