    Just Plain Wrong

    This was plastered at the top of the Yahoo web page when I clicked on___It made me angry when I watched it, which is an emotion I rarely experience.

    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.
    Bachmann challenged by 8-year-old
    GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann learned that protesters often come in adorable packages. A video captures the Minnesota congresswoman greeting 8-year-old Elijah and his mom at a signing event for Bachmann's book, "Core of Conviction: My Story," in South Carolina.

    The candidate, who is an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage, met her match with the soft-spoken, pint-sized activist. The video shows Bachmann leaning in to listen closely as the youngster whispers, "My mommy's gay, but she doesn't need fixing."

    The kid was totally put up to that. Not that it wasn't a good idea if you wanted to embarass Bachman but please, this kid is no activist.

    I've read a bunch of commentary on this story, and the overwhelming opinion, even at huffington Post, is that Michelle handled herself well when the selfish mother put her 8 year old son up to this. So, it probably wasn't a good idea if she wanted to embarass Bachman.

    The kid was used as a pawn and definitely shouldn't have been, but your views on homosexuality are disgusting.

    Putting her needs above the child's. The child was obviously not comfortable with it, but the mother thought she could score some political points for her cause.

    Devil's advocate, but it's entirely possible that it was something the child said on his own accord. While he certainly was cajoled to some extent, all children that young get very timid when speaking to strangers, even if there is something they want to say.

    I'm not saying that's obviously the case here, but it is possible.

    Possible. We have no way of really knowing. However, as he is only 8 years old and probably not a political junky, I highly doubt it was all his idea, especially considering how quiet he is and how much cajoling was required.
