GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann's campaign for Congress is raising money off of a poster that surfaced in the Twin Cities that is, shall we say, highly critical of her.
Bachmann's husband, Marcus, sent out the e-mail criticizing the posters:
"I write to you today as an outraged husband. My wife Michele Bachmann is under attack in the most vulgar and disgusting terms.
Just this week, all around the Minneapolis-St Paul area, posters started popping up for a concert titled "F*** Michele Bachmann." This was a juvenile and immature act by those unwilling to have a dignified debate, but it doesn't stop there!
Previously, Playboy magazine published an explicit, sexually violent article about what the author would like to do to several high-profile conservative women, including Michele. The article was so repulsive and created such an outcry, even Playboy had to blush as they pulled the article...
...You and I both know they are resorting to these vulgar attacks because they know their time is up - the American people have their number and won't put up with the continued trampling of our freedoms at the expense of their liberal ideology."
The Liberal Left Progressive Socialists who want Obama to incrementaly socialize and dismantle our Republic, are the most intolerant and loathsome of human beings. I predict that their hate and vile will only worsen as we near the mid-term elections. The people in this country have awakened to the Left's depravity and vileness and will tolerate it no more.
Come on, Tom. Is the worst thing you can say about the poster is that it is "highly critical" of her? I have a sneaking suspicion that if I named my band "F**k Paul Wellstone" (God rest his soul of course) or "F**k Al Franken", then subsequently put posters up all over downtown St. Paul - you would have more to say about it.
Personal attacks on candidates of either party are counter-productive. Let's stick to the issues.
I removed a comment on this site that was entirely inappropriate. I'm a huge fan of free speech but please remember to keep it clean.
Oh the outrage and the horror!!
Why does this even spark a reaction?
If the poster said Homosexuals would Burn in Hell - there would be no reaction from the right.
It's like how a white guy can fly his plane into a government building and not get called a terrorist.
Hypocrisy goes both ways on this one.
I find it very interesting that the mainstream media chooses to report on this, but continues to ignore Michele Bachmann's (and Tom Emmer's) close ties to an international, Minnesota-based organization that says the execution of gays is moral. This group, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide, had a booth at the Bachmann-Palin freak show in April, and Bachmann was scheduled to speak at their convention last year. Where's Marcus's outrage at that? After all, isn't advocating the execution of an entire class of people more offensive than using a word that Dick Cheney used himself on the Senate floor?

It's a Hip Hop poster for christ's sake. Get serious.
