    Come on, you have to admit it was funny --- for the reaction.

    And no one knows for sure that the mother was solely in charge of setting this up. Perhaps the child really wanted to tell her that.

    When I was his age, Mom had to coax me to speak up. The vid brought back memories of that.

    http://www.chicagonow.com/whats-a-boy-to-do/2011/12/michelle-bachman-and-the-young-activist/I was the person that recorded this; the mom uploaded.

    Sexuality is only political because ignorant people have made it so. To some people, it's a political stance-- to his mom, and him, it's a part of his life. He loves his mom and her partner.

    Back to the story-- I was standing in line with Elijah and his mom. His mom was going to say something to her, but she got nervous and told me she wanted to leave. We were about to step out of the line but Elijah cried out, "Nooo!" He grabbed onto her coat and pulled her back in the line, saying he wanted to talk to her.

    When we got up to Michele, he got a little stage fright. His mom just didn't want him to not say it because he was afraid, because she knew he would regret it if he didn't. I used to do ballet as a child, and before performances, I'd want to no do it-- my mom pushed me to perform. Afterwards, I'd run to her and tell her how happy I was. How is this any different? If we were shown a video of a child before a school play, or a recital, being pushed to perform and not give into stage fright, would we get the same reaction? My gut says no.

    Bachmann is an embarrassment... it's hard to believe she's a U.S. Congressperson.

    Trollileo saidIt would have been better had the kid done it without his mom forcing him to do it.

    Still, I loved the expression on Bachmann's face.
    And now bachmann is pissed! I love that!
