Why wouldn't she appoint a gay person to her administration - after all, she married one!

Asshole

Under normal circumstances, I won't contradict how a person self-identifies, but her husband is just too absurd in his suppressed sexuality.  That said, her husband wouldn't be a part of her administration; he'd be the First Lady.  As with misogyny before this, many presidents married women, yet wouldn't necessarily want them in their administrations.

 

This interview is depressing overall, but it is nice to see these politicians hem and haw over gay rights issues.  It means that they actually do feel the pressure of pro-equality America.  I know that doesn't seem like much, but it seems to me like a sign that public opinion is swinging on the issue to the point that even staunchly conservative politicians are watching their step.

"I don't judge them. I am running for President of the United States."

 

How are these two things connected at all?

 

"I'm running for the presidency of the United States. That's all that's important."

 

No, that is not all that is important. You are an intolerant bigot who takes their views from a book without any kind of evidence at all. I will move out of this country if you take it over.

How can anyone watching this take her seriously? The people she offends by the stupid shit she says won’t vote for her no matter how much she avoids answering important questions, and the ones who will vote for her regardless don’t give a shit whether or not she’s bigoted. She should just answer the damn questions.

Heh.... wow! How many times can she avoid a question?

This is a women who publicly stated she does whatever her husband tell hers, because the bible said she has to submit to him. So lets go to magic make believe land for a second. If she was elected president her gay husband would actually be in control.

Pure pain, as she just says the same thing over and over like a robot...

Bachmann and Perry really scare the hell out of me. I distinctly remember saying that there's no way in hell this country could elect someone like Bush, with all his overt religious pandering. But they proved me wrong, TWICE (electoral legitimacy not withstanding). I can totally see it happening again, and with a stronger TeaBagger controlled Congress, the next regime will make Bush/Cheney look like a walk in the park.
