Senator Kristen Gillibrand gets the Girl, You’ve Got Bigger Stones Than Me Award of the week for going head-to-head on “Meet The Press” yesterday with none other than Rep. Michele Bachmann. (Rep. Bachmann, let me remind you, refers to emergency contraception as “the morning-after abortion pill” thus conflating it with abortion, suggests the HPV vaccine can make children become mentally retarded,  jokes about so-called “ex-gay” therapy and does not allow her daughters to ask boys on dates.) Somehow Sen. Gillibrand managed not to reach through the TV screens and shake her … even when Bachmann said Republicans want women to “make their own choices.”

Michele Bachmann: People do find out [in my book] that I did not get asked to my senior prom.
Sean Hannity: Well, neither did I. And nobody would go with me.
Michele Bachmann:  Well, in my time, girls didn’t ask boys to prom. If you didn’t get asked, you didn’t go.
Sean Hannity: Yeah, well let me tell you, I have a 13-year-old son. Those days have changed big time.
Michele Bachmann: And our girls are not allowed to do that in our house. They have to wait for the boy to call.

Facepalm. Wilma Flintstone Rep. Michele Bachmann explains on “Hannity” that her daughters have to sit around and wait for a boy to call. I don’t even think kids these days use the telephone to ask each other out on dates, but that’s besides the point. What kind of message is Bachmann sending to her daughters? Eh, probably the same message she sent when she got up and served all the men water at a GOP debate.

In slightly-more-entertaining news, nobody wanted to go with Sean Hannity to prom. Oh, whyever not, ladies? [Jezebel via Think Progress] Keep reading »

Priceless. Absolutely priceless. Michele Bachmann met an eight-year-old boy named Elijah at a South Carolina book signing, who informed her, “My mommy — Miss Bachmann, my mommy’s gay but she doesn’t need fixing.” Why does anyone need to call her a lyin’ ass bitch when you can just call her a bigot?  [YouTube via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Conservative Political Action Conference Draws Major Leaders From The Right

On Monday night, Michele Bachmann visited Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show and his house band, The Roots, played a little music like they always do. But then it became clear yesterday that the song was called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch,” a 1985 ditty from the band Fishbone. (The Roots’ drummer Questlove tweeted a teaser that afternoon — “aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title” — that tipped people off.) This morning, Bachmann appeared on Fox News to say NBC owes her an apology and “that had it been Michelle Obama and that song had been played, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized.” Bachmann squarely named the song selection/title “sexism” (as did feminist bloggers).

And although I can’t believe I am saying this about Michele Bachmann or Fox News, I actually agree. Keep reading »
