(Shock Point)   Michelle Bachmann makes dramatic turn around and now will do whatever it takes to legalize gay marriage in Minnesota, as she promises to leave the state forever if it's legalized. Wait, she's against it? She might want to rethink her strategy   (dailycurrant.com) divider line 32

In a subsequent interview with The Daily Currant Bachmann says she's not sure where she'll go if she leaves, but is seriously considering Oregon as a possibility since its constitution bans same sex marriage.
"I've heard wonderful things about Eugene," she says, "and I think congressman DeFazio may be vulnerable to a challenge. They're the nicest people in the world out there, I'm sure we'd be welcomed with open arms."


Wait... WHAT?!?!  NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!  For the love of God, DO NOT COME HERE, you crazy coont!  We are NOT nice people, really!  We are a bunch of unwashed, baby-eating infidels, I swear!

1 Timothy 2:12 - I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. This includes gay men.

Ever get sick from a bad batch of shrimp? Somebody did 2,500 years ago and they wrote it down. That's kinda what the Bible is about. Somebody pissed off about something and writing about it not even thinking some rubes 2,500 years later would think its some kind of God given law

There is no over-the-top enough. See: Poe's law.


I was going to ask for an example of something that's so over-the-top that it's impossible to believe that it spewed out of Guanopsychotic Shelly's maw.

This wasn't over-the-top enough?

This is why the Daily Currant is both better and worse than the Onion: Better because they trick people more, on average, into believing their stories, worse because... the former is true because their stuff is only kinda chuckle-worthy at best. How is "crazy rightist threatens to move if the government doesn't do what they tell it" satirical? Right-wingers shriek that kind of nonsense ten times a day.

The problem with doing a Bachmann parody, is that you often come across as more sane in your satire than the real person.

I don't think the folks at the Daily Currant are going for "funny" -- I think they're deliberately trying to confuse us with realistic, but just slightly outrageous stories.

At least, with folks like her or Santorum there is no over-the-top enough. For the most part, even most politicians or political positions can be obviously satirized (at least, obviously to most reasonable people; see: Abortion-plex reaction by pro-lifers), but people like Bachmann are impossible to satirize.

Timothy's law upsets the modern womenfolk who make up 50% of the population. We in the LGBTQ community are 1 in 10 at best, and that's counting those in the closet, those who end up in opposite sex relationships and those who do not pair off. Also, shellfish are delicious. So if my boyfriend and I want equal rights it is easier to suppress us because 1, there are more of them and 2, we are not delicious (at least not literally).
