    you've just talked of possibilities.. while discounting the most plausible possibility.

    I'm fine with differing opinions.. but yours and Hazlnuts are a bit off the reservation

    Re: 8 Year old catches Bachmann off guard...

    The point has been made in the YouTube comments:

    Who has all the political power and media access?

    When she went on Glenn Beck to portray herself as a victim, unfairly cast as a homophobe, WHO was using the little boy as a pawn?

    The mother was teaching her child courage and confidence to stand up for what is right, using her iphone camera to inspire others to do the same, confront bigotry and homophobia.

    Who is now portraying herself as the victim?

    I will cut through the bias surrounding this issue like a hot knife through butter.

    The child was no hero. Bachmann was no hero. The boy was undoubtedly prompted by his mother to make a point that his mother just happened to film perfectly on her phone. If Bachmann uses this incident to rally her biased support, then that is her problem. This is an unfortunate event of a biased mother using her kid to make a statement, and, if it is what it is, Bachmann is using this, after the fact, as a tool to gain support, then she is also as bad as the kid's mother.

    Protip: Don't use your children to make our message for you.

    Unless the message is children of gay couples need to be confident and stand up bigoted bullies. When the monster Bachmann shrinked back in horror, the boy gained the confidence he'll need to stand up to the next homophobic a-hole he meets.

    Is that the message you're fabricating?

    That is not the message, hazlnut.

    I hope you are being sarcastic when you refer to Bachmann as a monster shrinking back in horror. For the sake of credibility, I hope you're not serious.

    Your contentions that the child was put up to it are merely that. No more, no less.

    It seemed like the kid was coached to me. But I really hope it turns out he wasnt.

    Of course he was. All kids are coached to say and do all sorts of things. No big deal. I think it's great this mom is teaching her kid to speak up against asshole politicians like Bachmann.
