…I want, I want some Batshit candidates running on the Republican side, I do! So, I’m pro-Palin, I’m pro-Bachmann. I want Palin to run! I’ll pay her filing fees!”

REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty. You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world, at Lexington and Concord.
[NOTE* from Leftish: um…there IS a Concord in New Hampshire, Michele, but the one in Massachusetts is the one where that Shot was Heard…New Hampshire, Massachusetts, these Northeastern states are confusing, I know. It can be hard to remember the American History you were supposed to have learned in Elementary School…after all, you are still having trouble demonstrating the other common courtesies that we were all taught as youngsters…such as “Do unto Others”, and good stuff like that. And, why should a Presidential candidate have to know their American History, anyway, right?}
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: I stand for the proposition that marriage is between a man and a woman. I think that Minnesota, for instance, this year, just about a month ago or so, passed at the legislative level the constitutional amendment to allow the people to decide what the definition of marriage will be. So that ballot question will be on the ballot in 2012. The people of New York came to a different conclusion. I think what we know is that, ultimately, you have all the various laws in the various states. There will be a conflict. If someone from Pennsylvania—or from New York, for instance, moves to a state where marriage is between a man and a woman, will these marriages be recognized? Ultimately, it will go to the courts. As president of the United States, I will only nominate judges who are not activist judges, who are not legislating from the bench. And so, I think that’s why it’s going to be very important to have this debate.
BOB SCHIEFFER: Would that be a litmus test for you, someone who was for same-sex marriage?
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: I want people who are for the Constitution. That’s my litmus test.
Sarah Palin just does not seem all that dynamic without a crowd jeering her on. Teleprompters and speech writers are not her friends…
