SPARTANBURG, SC – A day after wishing Elvis Presley “Happy Birthday” on the anniverary of his death, Michele Bachmann invited MJ to Washington.
Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) is on a roll. She made a gaffe yesterday and wished Elvis Presley a “Happy Birthday” on the 34th anniversary of his death, and today she tried to outdo herself.
“Some people think that I don’t know much about music. But, I not only love the two major styles of music, country and classical, but I am also very much into the music the kids are listening to today. In fact, I think musicians can help heal the world. That’s why I am inviting Michael Jackson to join me in Washington DC in September, so we can all come together and… change the world!”
Bachmann’s aides tried to tell her that Michael Jackson died in 2009, but the Congresswoman was on a roll. “I’ve loved Michael Jackson since I was a little girl. His hit “Superstition” is one of my favorite songs of all times and when he plays the harmonica, it sends shivers down my leg. I’m just said that he’s blind.”
Bachmann then went on to talk about gay marriage: “Gay marriage is fine with me as long as you are not a homosexual. Homosexuals are sinners. Boys should not be having sex with boys and girls should not be having sex with girls. God said that. Not me.”
The Spartanburg crowd seemed stunned by Bachmann’s speech.
“If your gay and you want to get married – go ahead. But to me ‘gay’ means ‘happy’ – so being happy is a good reason to get married.”
Bachmann is becoming famous for redefining words. On Fox News Sunday, she told Chris Wallace that she and her husband think the word “submissive” means “respectful”. She also thought that the word “bigot” means “patriotic” and she defined the word “sex” to mean “get it over as quickly as possible.”
Bachmann is currently in third place in the latest poll for the Republican nomination. She is excited to meet Michael Jackson in September and has chosen as her campaign theme song, “Man In The Mirror.”
“That’s what I am. A man in a mirror,” Bachmann told the crowd.
