Bachmann touts her flawless run for the presidency and love of Beyoncé

Bachmann: “I didn’t get anything wrong”

The congresswoman touts her flawless run for the presidency and love of Beyoncé

BY ALEX SEITZ-WALD

Tea Party Rep. Michele Bachmann has been laying low since last November’s election when she came dangerously close to losing her House seat, possibly in preparation for a bid against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken in 2014.

But Bachmann, being Bachmann, couldn’t stay quiet forever — or even very long. And yesterday, she participated in a “newsmaker interview” at Patrick Henry College, a conservative evangelical school in Virginia (the man who introduced her said he wished the Tea Party movement had been “a little more conservative”). She addressed everything from her favorite contemporary singer (Beyoncé) to gay marriage (bad) to her mistakes (none).

When asked about the “inevitability” of gay marriage, Bachmann stood up from her chair to say that heterosexual marriage is “immutable” and “the basis of our society — between men and women.” “I won’t be deviating,” she said, explaining that no matter what humans think, God created marriage and that is unquestionable.

Asked if any good came from feminism, Bachmann said that realizing that “women are valuable and that women should be listened to is very important.” However, she continued, “But in my opinion, that wasn’t feminism, that was Jesus Christ who did that. Because Jesus Christ did more to lift up women … We didn’t need the 1960s to tell us that, all you have to do is read Proverbs 31.”

Are you fucking kidding? Did Jesus Christ make your husband gay?

6. Michele Bachmann listens to Beyonce?


In fairness, I guess I can't really say much--there are a few old school LL Cool J songs that I have on my iPod.

7. Aside from all the other nonsense, could someone tell her Proverbs 31 predates Jesus and is in the

Old Testament.

10. Maybe she has a "red letter edition" of the Bible and the printer screwed up.

Printed Proverbs 31 in red. Might have happened.
