Bachmann says gays can marry... straight people

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

I wonder why Michele Bachmann is so big on straight women marrying gay men?

The Washington Post's Alexandra Petri has a wonderful response to Bachmann's recent quote that gays can marry, so long as they marry straights.

I’m glad Bachmann wasn’t there for history. “Why can’t Rosa Parks sit at the front of the bus?”

“She can sit,” Bachmann would say. “She can sit at the back of the bus.”

I’m glad she isn’t my waiter. “Is there a vegetarian option?”

“The vegetarian option is steak,” Bachmann would say, not blinking an eye.

“Is there a way for people in wheel chairs to access the sixth floor?”

“There’s a way. They can take the stairs,” Bachmann would say, still not blinking.
She has much more. Read it.

PS Don't miss the photo the Post chose for the story. Bachmann looks like someone threw water on her right before stealing her broom.
