    She had no real choice and we knew she would arrive at this moment.
    Time to get real and she has no place in a serious campaign.

    I'm going to miss her. She is hilarious. Does anyone else get that Tammy Faye Baker vibe from her? Not really knowing if she is for real or not?

    Too bad. I was hoping to see the "Circus Clown" with the awful makeup stick in there and spend herself and her fag husband into bankruptcy. She was a wonderful diversion for Republican donors. I like seeing Republican campaign funds go down a rat hole.

    Not directly from the house as that’s very difficult. It’s been 1880 since James Garfield succeeded in running for POTUS as a sitting house member.

    She was/is a damn good debater though.

    Please cite clear-cut evidence that her husband is a "fag"...or are you just being a mean-spirited bitchy queen?

    I think he's using the same evidence MOST homophobes use.
    Have you ever heard this man speak or watch his mannerisms?

    I'm not aware of any tangible evidence of Marcus being gay. Just the gaydar alarms for half the gay men in North America going off all at once. icon_eek.gif

    You sure it's not just "wishful thinking" on your part? He does have that sort of Ernest Borgnine thing going on icon_wink.gif

    I guess it's just me, but a gay guy calling another man "fag" -- a married man no less -- with absolutely no evidence anywhere that proves he is gay wreaks of all kinds of hypocrisy. Is it any wonder that many feel that gays are among the most judgmental hypocrites on earth.

    He might not be gay, but his pray the gay away "clinic" is a great way to meet closeted guys who will most likely be discreet about their interactions.

    Just half? I've never met anyone who was really fem who didn't turn out to be a homo - never, and I"ve been around a very long time. I don't what his issue is and I know there are always exceptions, but Marcus could easily star in any local gay bar Sunday night drag show.

    Aaahhhhh, I get it -- say no more --- clearly he is a "fag husband" married to Michelle Bachmann for 32 years and father of 5 kids just for convenience. We gays are soooooo astute icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sure she is if you're on the other side. My understanding is that she sure was a 'good debater' if you're on the other side of her in tax court.

    He might, since Ernest Borgnine is an extreme right-winger. Whom I actually admire on a certain level, given his WWII service, and the wonderful things he's done as an actor. Despite my reputation here, I can separate the man from his politics, if I find it justified.

    But Marcus has no redeeming features of which I'm aware, not a heroic military veteran, not an Academy Award-winning actor. He grabs government money to turn gays into straights, claiming it's a choice that can be reversed. I don't see the connection with Borgnine.

    Awww, Todd. Do I sense that you're defending him?
    Maybe you get a little hard and wet in the panties for him?
    Fantasizing about a three-way with them? icon_lol.gif

    You take politics way to seriously, brother.

    Laugh clown, laugh!
