Michele Bachmann Joins Elitist Club of The Glitter-Bombed

my anti-gay force field is stronger than yoursWhen Michele Bachmann pictures the minions of Satan come to antagonize her for her rabid anti-gay views, does she picture shrieking hippie ladies with glitter? Yeah, that sounds about right. There is an interesting mirror quality to it, no? Bachmann was crossing a stage at the RightOnline forum in Minneapolis when a gay rights activist came at her with a handful of glitter. However, Michele walked through this terrible gauntlet of devil fury relatively unscathed because satan’s minions appear a little low on their sparkle fuel lately. Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich were first to start the exclusive glitter-bomb club, but they got “glittered” a hell of a lot more, probably because their force field of anti-gay hate was impure. Michele will always win on that one. Watch the video after the jump:

Alright, “three’s a trend.” Where is our New York Times “glitter bombing replaces the sit-in” trend piece? [CityPages]

    Judging from the videos of the happy couple together, Michelle's husband, "the ghey fixer" would probably appreciate the glitter more.

    Fathoms deep are the closets of the Rethugs…

  • http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/ Madfall

    I've said this before and seen it suggested elsewhere, but getting 'glittered' needs to become the next Santorum type neologism. I suggest something involving bukkake, to horrify the midwesterners.

    • MildMidwesterner

      Horrify…. or titillate?

      Getting glittered will put the "o" in Iowa.

        Everyone knows Cumming, Iowa, is America's G-spot.

    If she caught some ghey from that glitter I'm sure Dr Marcus would be able to pray it away.

      I read that as "Mr Marcus", first time thru, & lollered.

        I'll need some proof that Newt is not clinically insane.

          Of the conservative media darlings, Newt and Sarah Palin aren't insane. Just a couple of carnival barkers marginally more clever than the rubes they're fleecing.

      No no. They'll just make Michele mad because of the strange effect the sight of them has in her hubby's trousers.

      • PristineODummy

        Hon, she hasn't seen the inside of those trous since her last kid was birthed a couple of decades and a half ago. No wonder she has to compensate by selling EagleForumPornVideos of herself vacuuming in high heels.

        1. Convictions are hardly guaranteed, especially if there's a jury involved. Tough sell on the "battery" quotient of sparkly stuff.

        2. As history is shown, the tried-and-true kind of iron-fister applications of "extreme law and order" always turns out well for those employing the firehoses and dogs, against those who want equality, right?

      we do vote, a lot. The problem is we only constitute 2-5% of the population, and a good percentage of that are not voting age. We are an extreme minority with not a lot of voting power. Minorities are supposed to be protected in this country but we all know what a fucking joke that is.

      EDIT: The battle for the hearts and minds of a people is never easy. Fear is effortless, and bogeymen make powerful tools.

      • Guppy06

        I was thinking more along the lines of those enlightened queer individuals who said in '10 "The Democratic Congress hasn't done anything for gay rights! I'll teach them a lesson and vote Republican!"

      • Noman

        "The problem is we only constitute 2-5% of the population, and a good percentage of that are not voting age."

        A good percentage of all Americans are not of voting age.

        Do we have reason to believe that gays are underrepresented when it comes to voting? On the contrary, I believe that gays are probably very well represented among the voting public, because of the discrimination they have experienced and continue to experience and because of the gay community's long-standing tradition of being organized and politically active.
