Darth to appear at fundraiser for homobigot Michele Bachmann
The obsessive, craven homobigotry of Minnesota State Senator Michele Bachmann is well-known to residents of the state, and she wants to impose her batsh*ttery on the Hill by running for Congress (MN’s 6th District). She has made a name for herself by railing on and on about protecting the sanctity of marriage and the sickness of gays (she’s a running buddy of professional “former homosexual” Janet “rape causes lesbianism” Boynes) and has made the Blend several times now. Her pet issue to date has been a state marriage amendment (which didn’t make it to the MN Senate floor for debate).
It looks like, even though he has a lesbian daughter and opposes a federal marriage amendment, the Dark Lord is welcome to raise cash for Bachmann’s coffers. According to the AP, Cheney will be slithering into the state to attend a Minneapolis fundraiser for her on June 26.

As MN Publius noted:
Will she ask Cheney to stop attacking her marriage, traditional conseervative values, society, and the children? Is she going to tell him she’s thinks he is immoral?
“Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it’s an issue our family is very familiar with,” Cheney told an audience that included his daughter. “With the respect to the question of relationships, my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone. … People ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to.
“It’s not a political issue; it’s a moral issue, it’s a cultural issue…
Guests can pony up $250 per person for the general reception or drop $1,000 to attend a “more intimate reception” and will have a chance for a photo opportunity with Mr. Defibrillator.
William Prendergast @ The Stillwater Tribune has this to say in his post, Anti-Gay Politician With Lesbian Daughter Supports Anti-Gay Politician With Lesbian Sister:
Okay–here is my very best offer. I’m not paying any more than three hundred bucks for the whole package. Put me down for that very special “intimate” reception with Bachmann and Cheney. When they say “intimate,” do they mean “clothing optional?” If so I expect a bigger break on the price, because they’ll probably want to see my scar, where the dog bit me.
For a Congressional race, this is certainly attracting a high level of fundraising power. Interestingly, the AP article notes that neither the White House nor Bachmann’s campaign has been willing to talk about Darth’s little fly-in, which will be held at a home on the shore of Lake Minnetonka. Maybe they’d rather not get a lot of coverage for supporting a candidate who was caught on camera crouching behind bushes to peep at the homos attending OutFront Minnesota’s rally on the Capitol last year.
