Michele Bachmann is entitled to run her campaign any way she wants, and using typical Ed Rollins tactics is her prerogative.
But millions of Palin supporters — some of whom support her for President, others of whom merely support her because of what she stands for and has gone through — are entitled to take Bachmann’s campaign tactics into account when choosing a “Plan B” should Palin decide not to run. Michelle Bachmann has spit on those supporters at her political peril.
For me, Plan B means anyone but Bachmann. And it is enough to finally get me motivated for the primaries.
Please read the whole thing. Michelle and Marcus Bachmann have built their lives on lying about who they are and forcing their will on other people through deception, such as using the color of scientific authority to impose their religious views on gays. Their anti-gay reparative therapy quackery causes depression and suicide among its victims. So it is only natural that sneaking, whispering and backstabbing appeal to her as legitimate campaign tactics.
Anyone but Bachmann.
