The color of the clothing -- blue pants, white blouse -- is a match.

Does she pay for the bodyguard?
Does the state pay for the bodyguard?
or
Does her campaign pay for the bodyguard?

6. What the hell is it with these people?
Oooooh, the evil gay folks might what? HURT her? Sure, they are the violent ones right? Besides that, if you are going to go out of your way to hurt people the very least you could do is stand up and face the music! Cowards and bullies, they manage to be both so perfectly.

24. She did refuse to shake a Gay man's hand
http://theyetimn.blogspot.com/2005/04/minnesotas-taliba...

My Senator is Michele Bachmann (lucky me) and she actually met constituents today... I sat next to her in the meeting and when it was my turn to speak, I introduced myself and extended my hand, as I always do. To anyone! I held my hand out for what seemed like eternity and I watched her hands rise from her lap as she turned them palm side up, looked at them, and put them back in her lap.

My hand still extended to force a response, she said, "my husband has pneumonia and I don't want to catch anything".

53. She must not wash her hands appropriately
If she is that worried about catching something AND passing it to her husband simple hand-washing would work and if it wouldn't, he ought to be in a bubble with no contact...of course that means she can't lick her hands or pick her nose between the hand-shake and the hand-washing. Perhaps she has an inability to refrain from putting her hands to her mucous membranes in the interim, LOL!

most pathetic, but funniest thing I've heard about in a very long time.

There has got to be some very interesting psychological baggage involved. I mean, spying on the gays? What, exactly was she hoping to see? (And do you think her bodyguard was thinking "I need to find a new job?")

91. I feel compelled to point out to folks not familiar with Minnesota
that the Nicholas Coleman listed above is NOT related to our weasel senator Norm. (He was the father of Nick Coleman, a columnist for the Star Tribune.) Nicholas Coleman was a great DFLer and his death was a tragic loss for us. Rumor has it that the weasel has at times not discouraged confusion about his relationship to these Colemans.

Meanwhile, I think these photos of Bachman will make a great campagin ad for whoever runs against her in 2006. I'm sure there's any number of issues where the question may be asked "What is Michelle Bachman hiding from?"

66. Are you surprised?
After all, this is the woman who said that gay marriage would "take away the civil right of little children to be protected in their innocence" and that children are the "prize" for the homosexual community.

87. my letter to Minnesota Star Tribune:....use as you like:

State Senator Bachmann Can Run But She Can't Hide

MN State Senator, Michelle Bachmann, who is being entertained as a possible U.S. Congressional Representative, attempted this week to force a vote on of the amendment to end domestic partnerships and ban civil unions and same-sex marriage. Pictures taken as she left the capitol building documented her hiding behind bushes in order to avoid face-to-face meetings with MN citizens who opposed her.

I am a heterosexual woman who believes it is a citizen's business what he or she does in intimate moments. I am stunned that the progressive state of Minnesota is entertaining the possible forwarding of a woman who would shame many Georgia rednecks. Hiding behind the (B)ushes is reflective of a ploy utilized commonly by the current administration in order to avoid 'facing the music' and the repercussions of one's actions. Looks to me like she seeks the spotlight except when the voters attempt to hold her accountable.

Edited on Sat Apr-09-05 11:53 AM by Misunderestimator
US? Who is this "us" :eyes: ?

Today Minnesota Senator Michele Bachmann thought it would be fun to circumvent the Senate Committee process and force a floor vote of the amendment to end domestic partnerships, and ban civil unions and same-sex marriage while we were outside rallying for our rights. Even Senate Republicans thought it was in poor taste to try to go around Senate rules on the same day GLBT citizens were making their voice heard.

You are saying that you agree that even DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIPS and CIVIL UNIONS should be banned? Welcome to DU. :puke:

130. Letters to editors about Bachmann needed
It's evident by recent threads on DU that Michele Bachmann is one of Minnesota's most reviled politicians. But much as we'd like to think they do, the vast majority of Minnesotans don't read liberal blogs and websites like DU. That's why people with opinions about Michele Bachmann need to sit down and pen a brief letter to the editor about her recent behavior--whether it's hiding in the bushes at a GLBT rally, railing about being shut out of a vote in the Senate, running screaming from a Scandia town hall meeting, imposing her flat-earth beliefs on teachers and college professors, whatever. Start educating the masses about this sorry excuse for a senator before she revs up her Rapture Republican base and gets elected to Congress.

Here are addresses to all the newspapers in Bachmann's Senate district. Letters also need to be sent to the St. Cloud Daily Times to start educating folks at that end of the 6th CD about her. Make no mistake, she will be a formidable candidate when every yahoo end-timer is pumping up the votes for her from the pulpit every Sunday. One only needs to look at the billboards that dot the 6th CD landscape to figure out there are plenty of them out there.

So next time, put your DU post into a letter to the editor where it will really do some good. Send to:

St. Croix Valley Press: ppcomp@sherbtel.net
Stillwater Gazette: stwgztte@pressenter.com
Stillwater Courier: editor@stillwatercourier.com
Forest Lake Times: editor.forestlaketimes@ecm-inc.com
St. Cloud Times: rkrebs@stcloud.gannett.com
