    Emirica's comments were straight up homophobic. Are you gonna tell me calling someone's lifestyle a "sick perversion" is not a form of hatred towards them?

    I suppose the fact that gay people's civil rights are being violated in the form of legislation specifically curtailing the rights that straight people enjoy isn't a form of oppression? That's a government singling out a specific group of American citizens and creating laws designed to keep them at a lower level than others. That's a direct violation of the Constitution.

Someone who pulls his/her weight at work?
    Are you purposefully ignoring the painfully obvious here?

    "What do those gays needs all of their civil rights for? I mean, they're not being lynched too often or being run out of town or having sodomy laws being wielded against them anymore! Geez, what more do they want?!"

    Sarah Palin wrote the book on using your kids for political purposes. Hell, she even used her pregnant, unmarried daughter.

    But I'm sure you protested loudly about that.

Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending." –Rep. Michele Bachmann, suggesting at a presidential campaign event in Florida that the 2011 East Coast earthquake and hurricane was a message from God (Aug. 2011)

    2. "Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too" -Rep. Michele Bachmann, getting her John Waynes mixed up during an interview after launching her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, where she grew up. The beloved movie star John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, three hours away. The John Wayne that Waterloo was home to is John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer. (June 2011)

    3. "I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter." –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the HPV vaccine, Fox News interview, Sept. 12, 2011

    4. "Why should I go and do something like that? But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, recalling in a 2006 speech at a Megachurch in Minneapolis that pursuing tax law wasn't her choice, but she did so at the urging of her husband because she was certain God was speaking through him

    5. "I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or anti-America?" -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, calling for a new McCarthyism, Oct. 2008

    6. "I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president, April 28, 2009

    7. "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009

    8. "If we took away the minimum wage -- if conceivably it was gone -- we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level." -Michele Bachmann, Jan. 2005

    9. "But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. ... I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly -- men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, botching American history while speaking at an Iowan's for Tax Relief event in January 2011. The Founding Fathers did not work to end slavery, and John Quincy Adams was not one of the Founding Fathers.

    10. "Before we get started, let's all say 'Happy Birthday' to Elvis Presley today." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, while campaigning for president in South Carolina on what was actually the anniversary of Elvis's death, Aug. 16, 2011 (Elvis was born on January 8)
    This is why Bachmann is so popular with the great Republican unwashed. Because she's so appallingly stupid. They don't trust smart people, so Bachmann is like a holy figure to them. She's the opposite of smart.

    I never liked Sarah Palin. If she would have run, she would have been my very last choice of all the republican candidates (still ahead of democrats though). however, yes. it's very different. All politicians have their family on stage, including Obama.

    The pregnant kid was also old enough to have a clue of what she was taking about, quite different then placing an 8 year old who is clearly uncomfortable and probably coerced to ask a question that he can't possibly completely understand just to make the mother feel better.

    I don't expect that she will have the down sydrome son going up to whatever democrat is in charge in 6 years and ask why he should be aborted. If she does, let me know and you have my promise that I will be just against that as I am in this case.

    So instead of addressing even one of her comments, you choose to summarily dismiss everything she has ever said? I suggest you are in fact a fan. So how easy that is?

    Sarah Palin did more than "introduce her family on stage". If only she stopped there? No, she had to present her daughter and her 'Fiance" as the All American couple...instead of the true train wreck they were. And if that wasn't enough, she takes her baby out on stage at 11:30 at night at the RNC. Really? That's "normal"?

    Yes, it's normal for the kids to be on stage. Obama's kids were on stage at the DNC when he accepted the nomination. I see nothing wrong with having a baby on stage. One thing you learn, is that most babies can sleep anywhere.

    Look at all these times Obama's kids were on stage - someone take those kids away, right?

    Putting a kid on stage to celebrate the accomplishments of a parent is entirely different then asking an obviously uncomfrotable child to fight your political battles for you.

    Oh please, give me a break___"Those people" are the most catered to group in america___They get their butts kissed even more than the minority races.

    As a libertarian, I support their right to practice their sick perversions in the privacy of their home with other consenting perverts, but for christ sake stop trying to shove your lifestyle down everybody elses throat.

    Re: Just Plain Wrong

    If that little boy was coerced into doing this, then it was wrong. Looking at the video, I saw normal timidity and awe at all the lights, cameras, and this strange lady. What I didn't see were the tell-tale signs of a rehearsed statement which means to me this boy may have done this on his own.

    As for Palin, I was appalled by how she use her children in 2008. I was appalled when Bill and Hillary had Chelsea with them when Clinton admitted to the affair with Monica on live TV. The Obamas have kept their daughters out of the limelight for the most part as did the Nixons, Kennedys and Clintons.
