Michele Bachmann gets an earful from a eight year old.
My mommys gay but she doesnt need any fixing, said a young boy who approached Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann at a recent book signing in South Carolina.

In a video of the encounter posted by the Daily Mail, the boy shyly approaches Bachmann at a table, and the congresswoman warmly asks, Whats your name? He responds that his name is Elijah and whispers in her ear.

"You said it but I think my ears were too far away, says the candidate, as she leans into the boy, who is accompanied by an adult.

Miss Bachmann, my mommys gay but she doesnt need any fixing, says Elijah, as the friendly look on her face melts to shock and then fear. The Minnesota lawmaker has been dogged by allegations that the Christian counseling clinic she owns with her husband Marcus offers therapy that promises to change gay clients.

1. From the mouths of babes...
An eight year old loves his mommy? Regardless if she's gay or straight? Bachmann and her ilk can't handle something like that. And I'll bet that Elijah grows up to be a normal well adjusted man.

2. Love this comment.
"It is shameful for gay activists to exploit and manipulate a 8-year-old to advance their radical homosexual agenda."

Yeah, the kid's mom is exploiting him for being proud of her. :crazy:
