Michele and Marcus Bachmann Lie Again and this time over the Kinsey Report
MARCUS AND MICHELE BACHMANN x390 20111210 (getty) |

Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus dismissed a woman who confronted them with information about the size of the gay population at a campaign event in north central Iowa on Sunday.

CNN reports on the exchange at a pizza restaurant, where the candidate was approached by a woman wearing a Bachmann sticker and holding a sign that said, “Gay-friendly Iowan.”  The woman, Kathy Schnell, asked the Minnesota congresswoman to sign the sign, which she did with a laugh.

Schnell then said, “I wonder if you’re aware that 10% of the population is gay. And if you have 28 children, then 2.8 of those kids are very likely gay.” Bachmann seemed to ignore her, but then replied after Schnell commented that she was not listening.

“Well, that’s according to the Kinsey Report,” said Bachmann, in a reference to the sex researcher.

Marcus Bachmann said, “Your facts are wrong.”  Unfortunately, Marcus Bachmann was unable to back up his reasoning for that belief because he didn’t have his own facts.

“That’s not valid?” asked Schnell.

“No it isn’t,” said the congresswoman before she moved to the next table. Her husband added, “No, it’s not at all. It’s been a myth for many years.”

LOL!!  Marcus and Michelle Bachmann have got to be the dumbest people on the planet, but then again look at who they’re representing.
