    Code:

    selfish [ˈsɛlfɪʃ]
    adj
    1. chiefly concerned with one's own interest, advantage, etc., esp to the total exclusion of the interests of others
    2. relating to or characterized by self-interest
    I seriously doubt that Mrs Bachmann was in the least bit embarrassed.

    Being an intelligent woman who loves children, she was more than likely shocked that this mother would place her very young son in such an ackward position that he was obviously very uncomfortable with.
    I'm guessing you are right regarding Bachmann not being embarrassed. To be embarrassed requires some integrity and empathy and a conscience. Robots are hardly ever embarrassed.

    So you don't see how it could be anything other than pure selfishness?

    I really should try harder to keep up with the politicly neutral opinions of those intelligent mainstream media comedians and actors.
    Nice straw man.

    So, you think it's fine for a mom to use her kids for political purposes. If you do fine. I happen to disagree. From what I have read, it seems a majority (of all political stripes) agree with me. So, im in pretty good company.

    It's quite obvious this timid little boy is very uncomfortable with the situation his selfish and insensitive mother has forced upon him and possibly even embarrassed by her lifestyle.




    Don't get me wrong, whatever sick perversions she enjoys behind closed doors with another consenting adult is nobodies business but her young son shouldn't be forced to legitimize it.



    Just another case of the people wanting what they want when they want it and they dont care how they get it....this is utterly dispicable...to use the kid as a "TOOL" your mom does need fixing kid if not for nothing else she needs to be fixed that you shouldnt be used as a dishrag

    So you're shocked and disgusted when we make kids say the pledge of allegience every day in school?

    I think the mom is teaching the kid how to speak up, even to authority figures, and right and wrong. That's a good lesson.

    It's not much different from church. Kids are being "used" in all kinds of rituals and made to say all sorts of things they don't understand there.

    Really? Is it completely outrageous? Really?? It's completely outside of the realm of possibility? Elijah most likely knows that his mommy is gay and knows that some people don't like people who are gay; 8 year olds are not brainless. Furthermore, it doesn't require Elijah having a bachelor's degree in political science to know when people are attacking his mom, even though he probably doesn't fully grasp the entire concept.

    Besides, I wasn't saying it was The Truth. I was playing Devil's Advocate and saying maybe it was possible. I still think it was in poor taste to use the kid in a political way, but all I'm saying let's not jump to the worst case scenario.

    I think it's wrong for a parent to use their kids in this way. I would think it's wrong for a parent to have their 8 year old kid used for political purposes wether its a cause I agree or disagree with. You are free to disagree. The world is filled with screwed up kids. So there are obviously a bunch of parents that agree with the way you would choose to use a child in an appeal to emotion for a political cause.
