While I appreciate Michelle Bachmann’s charisma and her ability to articulate the unifying message of the Tea Party, I have some concerns about her past statements on state recognition of same-sex relationships. That said, if you’re going to take issue with her arguments, do so in the same manner she offers them.
Why do some gay lefties feel the need to throw stuff on their ideological adversaries:
Why are they so reluctant to engage them?
RELATED: Note the words I wrote in a blog post two years ago that Michelle Malkin chose to feature in a post on civility and tolerance. Why does the woman in the video above prefer political theater to serious argument?
UPDATE: Over at RedState, Caleb Howe comments on this video:
“She can run, but she can’t hide.” Yeah, nothing says “I’m in hiding” like running for President, plainly stating your views repeatedly on national television, and speaking at a major conference. . . .
“The left: we throw stuff and stuff.” Powerful message.
Yeah, well, throwing stuff is a lot easier than acknowledging your adversary’s points and countering them with well-thought out arguments.
UP-UPDATE: Even Bachmann’s sensible critics castigate the glitterer. At Dump Bachmann, Eva Young writes:
I personally condemn this move. Here at Dump Bachmann we’ve been exposing Michele Bachmann’s words and record. This glitter bombing of candidates doesn’t accomplish anything.
