My favorite line from the Republican presidential candidate debate

"I do support a constitutional amendment on marriage between a man and woman, but I would not be going into the states to overturn their state law," said Bachmann.

The entire purpose of the proposed amendment is to invalidate same sex marriage in every single state in the USA. As in: "Marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.

So...huh? Say what? This is better than when she said the Battles of Lexington and Concord happened in New Hampshire.

And today all the papers are full of lemming-like commentary about how great a job she did in the debate, and how smart she sounded, and how cool she looked in that black dress, which was like TOTALLY different than the red ones that Sarah Palin wears.

It is facinating to watch people like Bachmann.
When Katie Coric exposed the shocking shallowness of Sarah Palin's intellect, it just doesn't seem to jibe with her abiltiy to speak well.
Bachmann is from the same mold.
What these people have in common (besides their glibness) is their conviction that they can make the trains run on time.
I am sure they would never even 'get' the analogy there either.
