Truth Of The Day: Dan Savage

“Look at Marcus Bachmann, Michele Bachmann’s husband. Anybody who has gaydar—anybody who has eyes—looks at him and sees a tormented closet case who has externalized his internal conflict and is abusing other people, doing his reparative-therapy bullshit. It’s so sad and pathetic.

“A lot of the self-destructive behaviors gay people are prone to drifting into are directed inward, and then you have these shitbags like Marcus Bachmann for whom it’s all directed outward.

“Marcus Bachmann is the photo negative of the guy on the last bar stool in the gay bar, drinking and smoking himself to death, except instead of destroying himself, he’s destroying other vulnerable queer people in an effort to destroy the queer inside himself.”

Marcus Bachmann outlines his “First Spouse” agenda

Ladybird Bachmann, or Marcus Bachmann as he is known in many circles, outlined what would be his agenda as the “first spouse” should his wife Michele Bachmann defeat all odds and not only become the GOP candidate for President but actually go even farther and BECOME President.

From the New York Times, Marcus shares with us:

“I’ve decided my cause is not going to be happy meals,” he said during a stop at the Family Table Restaurant here, apparently a dig at Mrs. Obama.

“We are going to be the message-givers,” said Mr. Bachmann, who runs a Christian counseling service that has been accused of trying to “heal” gays by persuading them to become heterosexual.

“We are going to get this message across,” he said. “Marriage is between one man and one woman. We are going to promote families.”

Good to know that, should time and fate warp into a science fiction movie, Marcus Bachmann would decide to use her platform – instead of addressing literacy like Laura Bush or fighting obesity like Michele Obama – to fight the scourge of marriage equality.

And then she woke up for her dream…
