The Guardian’s Angela Cummine asks whether feminists should support the right-wing, homophobic, Christian fundamentalist, US presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann.
The same woman who went to Iraq and compared one of Saddam Hussain’s former palaces ‘to a mall’? The one who thinks that swine flu might be a democrat conspiracy? So what you’re essentially asking, Ange, is whether women with an interest in equality should support a person who implied that Melissa Etheridge got breast cancer because she’s gay?
Er no. In fact, no one should support Bachmann. Not because she’s a right-wing, homophobic, Christian fundamentalist, though. Because she’s clearly an effing tool.
