Is America Ready For A Gay First Lady/Dude?

As Michele Bachmann moves front and center (actually front and far, far right), it raises so many questions to whether she is qualified to be President and what does she really stand for (and against)?
She seems to be willing to stretch the truth (and outright lie) to be elected as I wrote previously (Read HERE).
She has clearly stated she believes in the literal word of the Bible and that God speaks to her directly. Too bad for all of us, that even she acknowledges that she is not actually a "deep thinker."
“I just take the Bible for what it is, I guess, and recognize that I am not a scientist, not trained to be a scientist. I'm not a deep thinker on all of this. I wish I was. I wish I was more knowledgeable, but I'm not a scientist.”  [Michele Bachmann quote]
I sometimes question whether she thinks at all. She has said most of her decisions are not made based on what she thinks but what God told her to do. (What happens if God stops giving Bachmann hints as to what to do?)
Do you want a President that doesn't think for herself?

And now we also have to ask ourselves if we are ready for a gay first lady, I mean first dude? Michele Bachmann's husband Marcus Bachmann, a Christian counselor who's also her strategist, has a clear record of anti-gay rhetoric. Yet, many including Bill Maher and Cher  have said (and if anyone should know), this man sounds gayer than former Sen. Larry Craig (those Republicans like to hide in closets and bathroom stalls - whichever is more convenient to meet those despicable gay people on an intimate basis, of which the GOP speak.)

According to The Daily Beast contributor David Graham Marcus Bachamann has said :
 “He's allegedly participated in gay-to-straight therapy, he's talked about [the] homosexual agenda.”
Marcus also loves to call other Americans, who happen to be gay, Barbarians.
The segment prompted Cher to tweet message to her more than 250,000 followers:
“Just heard Michele Bachmann's OH SO CHRISTIAN husband talk about 'Gays' in the most UNCHRISTIAN way WTF!”
“But Boys please utube this asshole & tell me what u think … Cause My Gay-Dar is GOING OFF!!!”-
“How a Christian can call Any of God's Children … I can't talk! WHO R THESE FKN People? C if u can find his views of what 2 do 2 'Gays'”
“Boys I'm not kidding! I'm listening 2 this >%~€¥^<<&&&& I'm thinking GAYGAYGAYGAYGAYGAYGAYGAY Without Style!” she added moments later.-CHER
Marcus, with his lisp and VERY effeminate personality, sounds gayer than Richard Simmons; yet, he calls homosexuals "barbarians" who must be "punished." I bet Marcus is into self-flagellation. Hear for yourself. This lisp is unmistakable. I've never heard a gayer male voice in my life.

I am not making fun of anyone with a lisp nor am I criticizing anyone who exhibits effeminate behavior.  I think Richard Simmons and Liberace being themselves is great.  We should all be free to act however we feel and we should all embrace people exactly as they may be.
To me the question is not whether he is gay or has gay desires but the hate and hypocrisy of the Bachmanns towards gays.

Is it fair to call any American a "barbarian" simply because they may be gay? Aren't you supposed to hate the sin and not the sinner? Isn't calling someone a "barbarian" who needs punishment hating the person as opposed to the act?

And why is it that the Bachmanns’ had only female foster children? Yes the Bachmanns were paid 1.2 million by the government to foster these children (yet Bachmann is strongly opposed to any government payments, I assume except those to her).  Michele Bachmann and her family receive (and have for years) farm subsidies on the farm her family owns.  More government money going in her pockets; yet, she is opposed to big Government? 

So what is the deal with raising some thirty plus foster children, all female? Is it that Marcus might be too tempted by male children?  And this is in no way to say all gay men are pedophiles, only that it is curious why Marcus didn’t foster any male children.
What scares me the most is that both the Bachmanns have exceedingly strong opinions that leave little room for discussion. It is all black/white, right/wrong, for them or against them. It must be wonderful to be so self-confident that you know that you are always right. But Michelle has said she has done things not because she believed in it, but because God told her. She has said that "God told her to marry her husband even though she did not love him." So are her opinions her owns or God's? Do we need her to clarify which decisions she has made and which God has directed her to make? And what if God stops telling her what to do?

And as to Marcus, his hypocrisy seems to put him in the same situation as those purple robe & gown wearing hypocritical priests and Popes.
So Marcus, why are you the first to cast a stone and call your fellow Americans "barbarians" who need "punishment?" Which punishments do you propose? Should we hang those "barbarians" by the cross for their sins?
Marcus, do you propose we start a new holy crusade against these "barbarians?" Rid them from the earth?

Or, should they do like you and "prey" away their gay? But does the "gay" go away or is just waiting to burst out like former Sen. Larry Craig or dressed in drag like Liza Maneli?
So we have to ask ourselves today, is America ready for its First gay dude? What would his secret service name be? Tinker Bell? Dorothy? Fruit Loops? Twinkle Toes? Or just hypocrite?
It is clear who wears the pants suits in that family (I wonder if they share the same dress size?). Why hasn't God spoken to her to clue her in that she married a raging queen.

What other decisions might she make that also make no sense? Maybe God will let her talk to the Founding Fathers so she can get it just right (very very right).

It is ironic that most of the Founding Fathers would be mortified that persons like the Bachmanns might be leading America and calling for decisions to be made based on religious beliefs. Contrary to what the Bachmanns may tell you, the Founding Fathers believed strongly in the separation of church and state and that America should have policies based on freedom and equality and not on religious dogma.

These are barbarians at the gate and they go by the name Bachmann.
They must be stopped.


  1. It doesn't take a LGBTIQ person to see this. Danny

  2. She wants to be President but doesn't want to answer any questions about her husband and her life? How does she think that's going to work? We, the people who elect presidents­, are not going to vote in someone who cannot honestly account for themselves­. You might as well put a known criminal in the office before an "unknown" politician (probably the same outcome either way). Anonymous NYC

  3. You forgot;

    totally ignorant about American history,

    totally ignorant about the government budget process and what it would mean for the US to default on its debts,

    and totally unqualifie­d to be the US President.

    But none of that stopped George W Bush. Dylan

  4. And god had to "tell" her to marry her husband. She wasn't going to marry him until god forced her to. Marcus must feel really special. Amy D.

  5. I know it's not as easy to come out of the closet when your little society is homophobic, but for pete's sake, much of America is fine with gays and, if you want to pick your stupid fundie religion over being true to yourself, at the least don't make yourself into a hypocrite by being anti-gay. Wasn't it said in the bible god hates hypocrites? Not to sound all Westboro there, but I think the bible says that. Being a hypocrite is a choice. Being gay isn't.

  6. Marcus Bachmann is GAY GAY GAY. Hypocrites­!

    Do you agree with Michele Bachmann that God calls upon wives to be submissive to their husbands?

    "In a speech at a mega-church in the Minneapolis area back in 2006, Michele Bachmann explained her decision to pursue tax law. It wasn't her choice, exactly. God had already told her to go to law school; God had also told her to marry a fellow named Marcus Bachmann. Now Marcus told her "to go and get a post-doctorate degree in tax law.' This was not a particular desire of Michele's, but she was certain God was speaking through her husband.

    'Why should I go and do something like that?' she recalled thinking. 'But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands.' "

  8. God does not speak to people because likely there is no god. So I guess she is just hearing voices which would make her INSANE!

  9. The country may not be ready for a gay first dude, but what would be wrong with having a gay or lesbian person in that role?

  10. Checl out this video of Bachmann comparing gays to polygamist and worse.

  11. Carol Walsh- I would not have a problem with a lesbian or gay in the white house. It won't happen in our life time, but it should if the individual is qualified. The problem here is Marcuss Bachmann is clearly gay but he
    discriminates against gays and hides who he really is.

  12. There was a gay man in the white house. Abraham Lincoln was gay.

  13. It is quite interesting they only fostered girls.

  14. Suppose Jesus was gay. Could he be elected?

  15. Since Jesus was Jewish, in this current environment it doesn;t seem likely.

  16. Jesus sure seemed gay i that he hung out with al men and had lot's of private dinner parties with only men. If Jesus were real, i'm sure he'd be against prejudice to gays since his whole message was about loving everyone. So the bachmanns' have their Jesus message ALL WRONG!!!

  17. Their hypocrisy has done them in. It is already over for the Bachmanns'.

  18. Fred: no i do not agree that the lord spoke to Bachmann! I believe she is bat shit crazy. GOD SPEAKS TO NO ONE BECAUSE GOD IS A HOAK.

  19. Let's hope that Michelle Bachmann wins republican nomination for election because she WON'T beat Obama. Romney has a better chance but hopefully his koo koo Moron beliefs will scare most Americans.

  20. Did you see Michelle Bachmann's husband skip up on to the stage after the TEA PARTY debates? She literally walked away from him as if to say, get the fuck away from me you fruit cake. But remember " GOD" told her to marry the poor guy.

  21. It sure makes her wearing the pants make a lot more sense. She must think my husbands is so not the man in this relationship that i have to run for fucking president to get shit done. Dandy
