Dubious Honor

Introducing The Douches Of The Year: The Republican Presidential Candidates

Michele Bachmann

Bachmann (Rep-Alternate Universe) has had a banner year for doucheness: She suggested that gay people already have the right to marry (just not one another), made reinstating DADT part of her campaign platform and with—her husband, “I only sound gay” Marcus—made reparative therapy into a family business.

Plus, no one has a richer history of sheer homophobic nuttiness than Michele. God did not look favorably on her campaign, which quickly fizzled. Lately she seems to be positioning herself to be Mitt Romney’s running mate so there’s still a chance Michele-filled 2012. (Oh boy.)
