Michele Bachmann: "I don't judge" gay people [VIDEO]
|The new Michele Bachmann won't talk about the old Michele Bachmann.|
Everyone wants a little piece of Bachmann now that she's the most popular gal among the most conservative citizens in the eighth-biggest city of the 30th-biggest state: On Sunday, Bachmann appeared on talk shows on CNN, Fox News, CBS, ABC, and NBC.
It turns out Michele Bachmann, Ames Straw Poll president, is pretty boring compared to Michele Bachmann, crusading church lady.
"Meet the Press" host David Gregory asked Bachmann about the 2004 speech where, as a concerned, stupid parent, she explained that being gay was "part of Satan," and referred to "sexual identity disorders." Her response?
"I am running for the presidency of the United States," Bachmann said. "I'm not running to be anyone's judge."
"But," Gregory interrupted, "you have judged them."
"I, I, I," Bachmann said, "I don't judge them."
As it became clear Bachmann wasn't going to take the bait, Gregory asked whether Bachmann's "words should stand for themselves."
"I'm running for the presidency of the United States," Bachmann said, helpfully. "That's what's important."
