Is Michele ‘bat-shit insane’ Bachmann Just Marcus Bachmann in a Creepy Mask and Wig?

Via: Wonkette

Notorious pill-gobbling serial fabricator Michele Bachmann made up a stupid lie about how she went to her family reunion in Iowa and then made excuses to the press when she was late for everything that day on account of attending the reunion, which she did NOT atttend.

Klassy!

Or did she?

All we know is that Michele Bachmann says she was there, Michele Bachmann’s MOTHER says that only Marcus was there, ergo: Michele Bachmann is just First Lady Marcus Bachmann in a girdle and a gnarly rubber mask, which makes “sense” in a spine-tingling way.

Marcus Bachmann Is Only Charge of Michele’s *Important* Decisions, Guys

Via: Wonkette

Everyone’s number one spiritual question for today is: “Should Michele Bachmann ask her gay husband permission if she just wants to have a regular Coke once in a while?”

THIS WAS LAST NIGHT’S MOST IMPORTANT GOP DEBATE QUESTION, which was mysteriously booed by the Jerry Springer audience.

Anyway, this issue is so important that Bristol Palin’s memoir ghostwriter Nancy French decided (?) to swing by The Corner and type some soothing Christian words to explain, carefully, that Marcus is not Michele’s leather daddy for some Biblical reason other than the obvious one.

Sure, we will listen to you, person who writes all day long about the Palin family, veritable “super expert” on Christian living!

What was Michele Bachmann really saying when she told us back in June that she became a tax lawyer because God Marcus told her to?

 “The concept of submission is a bit more nuanced than our feminist  sisters understand. Christian women are under the authority of their  husbands,” French writes.

Weird, that doesn’t sound very nuanced at all!

First Lady Marcus

Via: Unicorn Booty

Published below is an excerpt – a particularly hilarious excerpt – from Ryan Lizza’s piece about Michele Bachmann’s political posse plane for The New Yorker. In it, Mr. Bachmann absolutely hams it up, discussing his high maintenance traveling habits, and positively jubilates overvbeing called a “silver fox.”

And for the record, we don’t care what Lizza told him. Silver Fox is a gay term. Right Anderson?

Marcus Bachmann plopped down on the seat next to me, in the back of the plane. He pointed at my laptop and asked if he could take a look. “All I want to know is what they’re saying about me,” he said. “Newsweek came up with the word ‘silver fox.’ Tell me what ‘silver fox’ means.”“Do you want me to tell you honestly?” I asked.“Oh, don’t tell me it’s something gay!” he said. “Because I’ve been called that before.” Marcus is a psychologist who runs a clinic that employs people Michele described in 2006 as “Biblical world-view counsellors,” who “reach out and try to bring the medicine of the Gospel to come and heal people.”I explained that “silver fox” probably had more to do with the color of his hair.“O.K., I can handle that,” he said. Tera, the assistant, assured him that it was a positive term.“It’s better than Porky Pig,” Marcus said, with a laugh.

Marcus announced that he would now analyze everyone around him. He asked for three characteristics that a close friend might use to describe me. I demurred.
He kept pushing: “So reporters are not that vulnerable?” “Maybe it’s a man thing.”

I tried to change the subject by asking him about the similarities between psychologists and journalists. But he would have none of it. “You are still asking questions about me!” he exclaimed. “That’s a trademark. Ai-yi-yi!”

‘Monks Teach Maleness To Thai Lady Boys’

Via: Newser

Political observers’ gaydar is super-piqued by the intriguing Mr. Michele Bachmann, particularly because the therapist is so rabidly anti-gay. “It’s pretty much a given that the most vociferously homophobic men are usually repressing something,” chortles actor James Urbaniak.

“But, oh Mary, Marcus takes the ever-loving cake. I haven’t seen flames this high since the last California wildfire.”

Monks teach maleness to Thai ‘ladyboys’

Via: AFP

The 15-year-old aspiring “ladyboy” delicately applied a puff of talcum powder to his nose — an act of rebellion at the Thai Buddhist temple where he is learning to “be a man”.

“They have rules here that novice monks cannot use powder, make-up, or perfume, cannot run around and be girlish,” sa”Were you born as a man or a woman or can you not specify your gender – not man or woman?” said Pipop Thanajindawong, who was sent to Wat Kreung Tai Wittaya, in Chiang Khong on the Thai-Laos border, to tame his more feminine traits.

But the monks running the temple’s programme to teach masculinity to boys who are “katoeys”, the Thai term for transsexuals or ladyboys, have their controversial work cut out.

“Sometimes we give them money to buy snacks but he saved it up to buy mascara,” headteacher Phra Pitsanu Witcharato said of Pipop.

Novice monks’ days pass as in any other temple — waking before dawn, collecting alms and studying Buddhism — but every Friday attention turns to the katoeys at the attached school.

Were you born as a man or a woman or can you not specify your gender – not man or woman?” asked Phra Pitsanu at a recent assembly. “You cannot be anything else but your true gender, which is a man. As a novice you can only be a man.”

~~~

Monks have had limited success in their project — three of the six ladyboys to have graduated from the school are said to have embraced their masculinity, but the remaining three went on to have sex changes.

Pipop said he has struggled with his sexuality at the temple.

At home in Bangkok he dressed like a girl, putting on make-up and taking hormones until he developed breasts, but he has since stopped the treatment and wears only a surreptitious dab of powder at the temple.

He does not believe he will live up to his family’s hopes that he will become more manly.

“I can make them proud even I’m not a man,” the teenager said, adding he had given up his ambition to be an airhostess and now aspires to work in a bank.

He thinks he will have a sex change after graduation.

“Once I leave the monkhood the first thing I want to do is to shout, to scream out loud saying: ‘I can go back to being the same again!'”
