ABC's Bachmann Special
(ABC) April 7 : The Find My Family series will present a two-hour documentary special on Sunday, April 17. The feature, titled Palm Sunday Special, focuses on a search conducted on behalf of Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota), to find her family of origin. Bachmann had requested the search in April of 2009, in anticipation for a potential run for national office in 2012.

Rep. Bachmann's birth certificate, from the First General Hospital in Waterloo, Iowa, identifies her as Michele Marie 'Unknown', born on April 6, 1956. She was adopted by David and Jean Amble ten days later.

All I knew for sure was that my 'birth-mother' was a young teenager, Rep. Bachmann tells Find My Family.

The Amble divorced when Michele was a small child. My father was intent upon aborting me when I was three, Rep. Bachmann says. But my mother, a Lutheran, was pro-life. Clearly, my birth-mother was a Christian, too. This is the foundation of my strong family values positions.

The previously long-sealed court records show that Rep. Bachmann's birth-mother was a sixteen year old named Anita Jane Bryant (dob: 3-25-40). Find My Family has found that the teenager, a product of a broken Christian home, had been a run-away in the mid-1950s. In an initial interview, Ms. Bryant tells Find My Family that she believes that the father of the infant she put up for adoption was a small-time car thief named Charles.

To the best of her recollection, his middle name was Willis, although she said she was not at liberty to identify his last name. He was charming . a performer. He had a hypnotic effect on those of us who followed him, Bryant said. This may go a long way in explaining the hypnotized affect that Michele has today.

Bryant was herself a performer, best known for her two Top 40 Hits, the 1961 I Can't Do It by Myself, which reached # 87; and 1962's The World of Lonely People, which topped the charts at #59. Bryant became the spokesperson for the Florida Citrus Commission in 1969. She also reached infamy as a Christian-Values political spokesperson in the 1970s.

36. " Bryant became the spokesperson for the Florida Citrus Commission in 1969."
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 11:49 AM by Adsos Letter
"She also reached infamy as a Christian-Values political spokesperson in the 1970s."

From Wikipedia: "In 1969 she became a spokeswoman for the Florida Citrus Commission, and nationally televised commercials featured her singing "Come to the Florida Sunshine Tree" and stating the commercials' tagline: "Breakfast without orange juice is like a day without sunshine."

LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anita_Bryant

Sounds like the same one to me.

Michelle Bachmann is the illegitimate child of a car thief and Anita Bryant? Adopted by someone who wanted to abort her at age three?

we're talking about Michelle Bachman here. Ehen you realize that, the statement takes on a new meaning.

I may have to go see her at one of her "performances" just for the comedy of it all.

Without Lutherans, who would Garrison Keillor talk about? Luckily, we have someone like Bachmann to insure that everyone else's children in Lake Woebegone are above average.

78. Bachmann isn't a regular Lutheran.
She's a member of a fringe denomination, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) which is just as batshit crazy fundie as any speaking-in-tongues snake handler from Alabama. They are anti-gay, creationist, sexist (women are not allowed to be pastors or vote in their congregations).

57. Well, I did invest
a good ten minutes in writing it. I did an 'interview" with sean Hannity a year ago, that I thought was an obvious giggle. I came back a day later, and a few people were upset with me for not including a "sarcasm" tag. I've never used an tag etc on this forum. But I do include at least one line that should serve as a glaring red flag.

I was going to post a picture of a side-by-side comparison of Ms. Bachmann and Bat Boy, but realized I'd be casting what could be interpreted as an aspersion on people who were adopted. Not to excuse her animosity toward everyone but the rich white people she exclusively serves, but Ms. Bachmann's lack of compassion may be due to her first emotions in this life included the feeling of abandonment. Lack of love then does not excuse her ignorance and bigotry today, however. That she has acquired on her own.

EDIT: A lot.

41. This Is One Of The Weirdest Stories I Have Ever Read
The hate-monger Anita Bryant is her mother? Aborted at 3? Did she mean three months? I also think this explains a lot about Bachmann and btw aren't some mental disorders genetic?

You know, we are seeing two giant rw sweethearts about to fade into obscurity, Palin and Beck, and my thinking is that Bachmann is peaking and will follow them. Too much kleig light on these people is never in their best interest.

71. There are two seats
open. I am the only candidate to already turn in my paperwork. I'm not sure if both of the other two (already seated) are planning to run for another term. There is a little over two weeks left for people to file.

Although I reside in an area in upstate NY that is heavily republican, I think that I stand a good chance of winning, no matter who else runs. People are concerned about a number of issues, and I think many put the good of the school before party identification. And, at risk of sounding fat-headed, I think that I am respected in the local community.

80. Ha!
