Robert Dominic Ventre II Staff WriterIn what might be the most laughable instance of "playing the victim" the world has ever seen, notorious and despised Minnesota state representative Michele Bachmann has stated that she is tired of all the "bullying" the gay community has subjected her and the American people to in recent years. This was, of course, partly in response to Arizona state Governor Jan Brewer's decision to veto a recent bill which would allow legal discrimination of gay and lesbian citizens. While interviewing with Portland-based (really?) conservative talk radio host Lars Larson at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Bachmann put on the blinders and spoke from the heart: "There's nothing about gays in there. But the gay community decided to make this their measure," (Please keep in mind that the sponsor of the bill in question ((Steve Yarbrough)) openly stated it was at least in-part about same-sex marriage), "I think the thing that is getting a little tiresome, the gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they've so intimidated politicians. The politicians fear them, so that they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere." Bachmann's endless dedication to hypocrisy was also reinforced by her next statement: “If you want take away my religious liberties, you can advocate for that but you do it through the constitutional process and you don’t intimidate and no politician should give away my religious liberties or yours.” I mean, really, who brings intimidation into politics? The nerve. In a recent interview with ABC News and Yahoo, Bachmann professes her lust for widespread acceptance in a world dominated by homosexuality, where religion and its pious believers are ushered into a corner and forced to watch reruns of Will & Grace: "I was sorry that she made the decision, and it's because I believe that tolerance is a two-way street, and we need to respect everyone's rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely-held religious beliefs." One has to wonder if this is all some sort of act, or if Bachmann truly believes the inane bursts of noise that come tumbling out when she opens her mouth. After all, this is the same woman that referred to the Tea Party as an "intellectual movement." I would define an 'intellectual movement' as reading Tolstoy while on the toilet, but that's me. Some times the political world is just one, big, slapstick comedy routine.
