Michele Bachmann Recounts The Last 5,000 Years Of Human History, All The Way Back To Dinosaurs

Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who does not receive enough SNL parodying, is in no mood to be a revolutionary. “In 5,000 years of recorded human history… neither in the east or in the west… has any society ever defined marriage as anything other than between men and women,” she told an audience last night at the Iowa Family Leader’s presidential lecture series, the place where Ron Paul got confused about whether he supports gay marriage. “Not one in 5000 years of recorded human history. That’s an astounding fact and it isn’t until the last 12 years or so that we have seen for the first time in recorded human history marriage defined as anything other than between men and between women.” Stay tuned for MiBach’s labeling of judges as “black-robed masters” and calling Planned Parenthood the “LensCrafters of big abortion.” At least this lady has cool catchphrases. (It was at MiBach’s other speech in Iowa that a radical gender, sexuality and women’s studies major heckled her.) [photo via]
