"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Michele Bachmann is no Sarah Palin

Here's why.

And also why I would not be able to vote for Bachmann. Period.

I hope that both major parties do not choose candidates that I can't vote for. Because I have never sat out through a presidential election. And I'm not a big fan of third party spoilers.

Palin YES! Bachmann NO!

    I think it's hilarious that Bachmann is probably exactly the right-wing boogie-man, er, woman that the media, left and GOP elites have tried to portray Palin as for three plus years and they have yet to discover it. Palin has already been thoroughly vetted though, BY THEM, and they're just starting the process with Bachmann. It's going to be interesting seeing their eyes opened.

  2. Exactly, Bev.

    And in some ways... Bachmann is a good foil against which the electorate can see the more moderate Palin by contrast. *If* the MSM will just, for once, do it's job and report the facts.

    What's truly interesting to me is that any of the GOP elites ever thought they'd get away with fronting Bachmann in this as an alternative to Palin. There is no depth there and Bachmann quite literally has as many, if not skeletons, then certainly dusty bones as some of the males. I know we don't want a female "cage match" to come out of this, but if push comes to shove, Palin will quite literally eat Bachmann alive with a smile on her face, politically speaking. Palin is too much of a competitor not to.
