Michele Bachman makes Dan Quayle look like Albert Einstein

For someone who is a tea party favorite,  is always talking about getting us back to the vision of the Founding Fathers, and is conducting classes on the Constitution for members of the House of Representatives, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) isn't up on her Constitutional history. Check out this tweet courtesy of Americablog:

For the benefit of those not aware of the simple stupidity behind this post - All of the Founding Fathers were dead by the time slavery was abolished, seeing that America declared itself free from British rule close to 100 years before the 13th amendment to the Constitution was added. The 13th amendment  abolished slavery.

Dear Congresswoman Bachmann, I liked you better when you used to watch gay pride parades while hiding behind bushes.

And some conservative Republicans are actually pushing for her possible presidential candidacy, including one who called her " Reagan in pumps."

Such is the sad state of conservatism in America.

Homophobe tries to play Joan of Arc when he really should try out for Lady MacBeth

Scott Lively, the anti-gay activist partly responsible for the "kill the Gays" bill in Uganda is complaining that he is being unfairly attacked.

Lively has recently claimed to have toned down his rhetoric in an effort to refocus his so-called "good fight" on helping the underprivileged in Massachusetts. However, he is finding out that his past reputation for demonizing the lgbt community will not go away.

And he complained about it in the letter to the editor today in a local Boston newspaper :

I’ve recently been attacked by the Boston Globe (front page), then The Republican and local television news. In these reports and online reader comments, I’m labeled variously a “hate group,” Holocaust denier, anti-Semite, author of a “Kill the Gays” law in Uganda, a racist, murderer, and defender of pedophilia.

Google my name to find 20 years of similar rhetoric by my enemies. It has long passed beyond slander into absurdity. Why the attacks? Because I am a knowledgeable and persuasive critic of the “gay” movement. I don’t run or self-censor under pressure so they keep escalating their rhetoric to discredit me to the public.

For the record, I have never advocated hatred or violence against anyone. I have never denied the Holocaust. I am a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people. I did address the Ugandan Parliament but spoke against the death penalty provision in their bill (which did not become law). I pastor one of the most racially integrated congregations in Springfield. I have never killed anyone. And I am internationally known for preaching against all sex outside of heterosexual marriage (including pedophilia).

Mr. Lively, you are being attacked because you are a reprobate homophobe who, while you have not outright called for violence against lgbts, manipulated audiences to that very end.

In his "I am just like Joan of Arc on the cross" letter, Lively omitted several things.

He omitted that he:
