I trust we all recall this famous Thomas Nast Cartoon.

TN

Human Cartoon Michele Bachmann

has her own rendition of it.

During a Wednesday appearance on the conservative radio show “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann accused the “gay community” of pushing “deviancy,” “tyranny” and child rape. The Minnesota Republican warned that the gay community will “abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.” She also predicted that gay rights advocates will legalize polygamy and enact “hate speech laws across the United States” in order to bring about “the rise of tyranny.”

Those with strong stomach can hear Michele go on and on (and on) about this HERE

I trust we’re all familiar with Ladybird Bachmann (who strongly resembles the central bird in the Nast cartoon)

And his “clinic.”

No wonder Michele hides from actual gay and lesbians.

But there are some things she can’t hide from.

The latest is a federal inquiry into whether an outside “super PAC” improperly coordinated strategy with Mrs. Bachmann’s campaign staff, including her husband, in violation of election laws.
The Department of Justice demanded records from the super PAC last week of its finances and its communications with Mrs. Bachmann; Marcus Bachmann, her husband; and former staff members, according to a grand jury subpoena reviewed by The New York Times.
The investigation appears to stem from a complaint a former campaign staff member made to the Federal Election Commission and to the F.B.I. The staff member told of overhearing the president of the super PAC asking a Bachmann senior adviser about buying advertising on radio and TV stations in Des Moines ahead of the Iowa caucus on Jan. 3, 2012.
Coordination between a campaign and a super PAC violates federal election law if it meets certain criteria, said Paul S. Ryan, a senior counsel at the independent Campaign Legal Center.
Mrs. Bachmann is already the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation into her campaign finances and allegations her staff was improperly used to promote her political biography, “Core of Conviction.”
Mrs. Bachmann, 57, who announced in May that she would not seek a fifth term from her Minnesota district next year, said at the time that her decision was unrelated to the ethics charges.
Briefly the front-runner in the Republican primary, she won a much-watched Iowa straw poll in August 2011, appearing on the cover of Newsweek, but she finished last in the caucus four months later and quit the race.
The turmoil of her final weeks has spawned multiple accusations of impropriety. A coordinator for Christian home-school families sued Mrs. Bachmann, accusing her of stealing a mailing list; the suit was recently settled. An Iowa state senator who was chairman of Mrs. Bachmann’s campaign is under investigation by the Iowa Supreme Court over whether he was improperly paid.

Michele should do well in the slammer. After all she’s a “first-time offender”

As for Marcus — take it away boys!
