The certifiably crazy woman from Minnesota who sits on the right hand of God has signed a pledge sponsored by The Family Leader (a kissin' cousin of Focus on the Family) which contains a clause that essentially says black children were better off under slavery than they are now.
Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an AfricanAmerican baby born after the election of the USA‟s first African-American President.Because of the instantaneous uproar following this idiotic nonsense, other claims in the document to which Michele Bachmann has attached her signature have largely gone unnoticed. The vow also contains a list of practices - homosexuality, adultery, and group sex - which, according to these misguided ignoramuses, fail to improve marriage and public health.
One of those practices includes anal sex. Yep, you heard that right. Anal sex. Allegedly, one of the failures in the practice of anal sex is that it doesn't "lower the public health costs of Medicaid and Medicare." That's right, folks. Of course, one has to wonder why they should even care since they're trying to dismantle these programs anyway.
While the ability, or lack of it, of anal sex to improve marriage and public health, has not yet become a subject for much debate on the campaign trail, Michele Bachmann's willingness to raise the issue may olpen the door to a much more inclusive and provocative exchange of ideas than has been seen in US politics for a long time now.Can't wait for the next debate.
