The Minnesota Monitor – as impeccable a source of journalism as George Soros’ money can buy –
snarks at covers Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, quoting a piece from Radar, which would appear to be yet another bunch of John Stewart wannabees (not unlike, as it happens, the piece’s author himself).
Oh, it starts out with the usual symptoms of Bachmann Derangement Syndrome:
“Bachmann, an Evangelical Lutheran, and self-professed fool for ‘Christ,’ ran for Congress because God—and her husband—wanted her to,” the tongue-in-cheek article said. “The representative publicly credited her campaign to her submission to her husband, who was channeling God’s wishes for her.”
(Offline note to Christians – d’ya ever think that anyone in the Sorosphere will bother to figure out that “fool for Christ” doesn’t mean what they think it means? Or that the voluntary, theologically-based notion of “submission to one’s husband” isn’t necessarily personally disempowering, given that she is now one of the most powerful people in the United States? No, me either)
But then it touches upon some interesting history:
It also notes, “as a Minnesota state senator, Bachmann launched a crusade to outlaw gay marriage that turned into a highly publicized spectacle replete with restroom run-ins with angry lesbians
“Run-in with angry lesbians”?
Radar via their mouthpiece at Minnesota Mon
eyitor is referring to an incident in Scandia, Minnesota about two years ago, in which Michele Bachmann she was detained against her will in a restroom. Bachmann claimed her visitors were upset and moved to prevent her from leaving the rest room.
However, on the Dump Bachmann blog – your one stop shop for Bachmann derangement – reported the event as follows:
Less than a moment later, piercing
screams were heard from the ladies’ washroom. “Help!!!!
HEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!” With everyone’s attention riveted
on the door, Senator Bachmann emerged in a crouching run,
crying, “I was being held against my will!” Two women
were seen standing behind her, one tall and elderly,
the other young and petite, both unassuming and bewildered.
So one of several things is going on here:
- Radar knows something the “Dump Bachmann” gang aren’t telling us; that Bachmann was not casually queried by a gentle biddy and a nun!
- Radar is lying, and Minnesota Moneyitor is blithely passing the lie on without any further checking, defaming the indefamable Dumpers.
What is the truth?
By the way, here’s an infinitesimal nod toward Radar’s credibility:
and grainy photos suggesting that Bachmann was ‘spying’ on a gay rights rally while crouching behind a bush.”
They put scare quotes around the elements of the “Bachmann spied on the gay rally” story, one of “Dump Bachmann’s” most delusional old chestnuts.
eyitor – the best “journalism” George Soros’ money can buy!
UPDATE: Open note to a certain ethically-challenged leftyblogger who thinks puerile name-calling is “argument”:
I get twenty times the traffic you do – and I always will. So no, I’m not trolling for traffic on your dim little site.
Face it; your efforts helped Michele Bachmann get into Congress. With y’all as enemies, she may be the first female president.
Now go run along and play in the little pool of your own febrile splittle that you’ve been marinading (poaching?) in since November.
