Second Opinion

Michele Bachmann Is “Sorry” That Jan Brewer Vetoed Antigay Bill In Arizona


Someone, somewhere is still clamoring for Queen of cray-cray Michele Bachmann’s opinion on things, and now she’s weighing in over Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of that outrageously offensive “turn away the gays” bill that almost passed.

Taking time away from her busy schedule of avoiding ethics investigations and spewing antigay hatred, Bachmann took the time to chat with Jeff Zeleny of the ABC News/Yahoo News online talk show The Fine Print.

After the initial “sorry” statement, she expanded on her thoughts about the Arizona situation, and they’re pretty much what you’d expect.

“I believe that tolerance is a two-way street, and we need to respect everyone’s rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs. Religious liberties and the protection of our religious liberties is right. Right now, there’s a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it’s against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Do you think that she may have been able to reference religion just a few more times in that quote?

She doesn’t elaborate as to how exactly LGBT people and allies are being intolerant of anyone else (and of course ignores gay Christians), but the rhetoric of entitled victimhood that she and her Tea Party patriots are now famous for doesn’t leave much room for facts or common sense.

As it is a midterm election year, expect to see more of her foolishness as the year progresses.

Apparently the gift that was sent her way by some of her allies wasn’t taking up enough of her time.
