Inside the Twisted Mind of Michele Bachmann: "I don't judge, I convert." (Video)

GOP Front Runner, Michele "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann
Michele Bachmann is in full campaign mode after winning the Iowa straw poll over the weekend, which means that she's following in the 235-year tradition of American politics by denying her own record and expecting the rest of us to check our brains at the door and fall in line. That may work for the Teabaggers, for whom reality is shrinking dot in the rear view mirror.

For those of us on this side of the looking glass, watching Bachmann side-step direct questions from David Gregory, who confronted Crazy Eyes with her own malicious statements against the gay and lesbian community on Meet the Press on Sunday, was enough to make your head explode.

When it comes the the gays, Bachmann has changed her tune. In a speech in 2004, the Teabagger Queen called homosexuality "personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement".

Now that she's running for president, however, her mantra is now "I don't judge", as if the rest of the world doesn't now know what goes on behind the closed doors of Bachmann and Associates, the "clinic" she founded with her closet case, ex-gay husband Marcus. This is the same operation that has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in Medicaid funds, a system that Bachmann would do away with, if elected.  This is the insanity that the GOP has embraced this time around.

Just so we're clear here, Bachmann is only doing what Obama did when he ran for president, except in reverse. During the '08 elections, The Big O backtracked from his previous pro-Marriage Equality position to make himself more palatable to social conservatives. Bachmann is backing away from her anti-gay rhetoric in order to appeal to the deaf, dumb and blind.
