When asked about gay rights in an interview with New Hampshire's Concord Monitor, presidential candidate Michele Bachmann refused to answer. "I'm not involved in light, frivolous matters," she said. "I'm not involved in fringe or side issues. I'm involved in serious issues."
Waterlogged in said seriousness up to her glassy eyeballs, Bachmann is also filled with a hubris that goes through the roof, adopting a novel way of campaigning: answering only questions she feels like answering, as if her past record doesn't exist. She first debuted this modus operandi while being interviewed by the likes of Chris Matthews, who became so visibly aggravated with her non-answers he asked if she had been hypnotized. Repeating this technique with every interviewer, she just bulldozes through her vapid prepared remarks, her eyes ever more glazed until resembling a resident of Village Of The Damned.
For someone not involved in "fringe" issues like gay rights, she sure has spent a great deal of her political career obsessed with said fringe issues, including leading the charge for a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality in Minnesota. She has made inflammatory anti-gay statements at every available opportunity, including whoppers like "It's part of Satan I think to say that this is "gay." It's anything but gay," and "If you're involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it's bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement."
