Bachmann still dodging gay marriage questions: it’s a ‘frivolous matter’


GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, continues to dodge questions about her anti-gay platform, calling gay marriage a “frivolous” matter.

From the Concord Monitor:

“Bachmann cut off an interview last week as she was being asked a question about gay marriage and emphasized that she is focused on rebuilding the economy and repealing federal health care reform.

“I’m not involved in light, frivolous matters,” she said. “I’m not involved in fringe or side issues. I’m involved in serious issues.”

Meanwhile, Bachmann last week signed a “Marriage Pledge” from the National Organization for Marriage, in which she pledges to such frivolities as supporting a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage; defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court; appoint judges and an Attorney General who oppose a same-sex marriage; and more.

Bachmann is also among several GOP presidential candidates expected to join the NOM‘s Iowa bus tour this week. But hey, don’t ask her about such frivolous matters.

Here’s Bachmann on the cover of this week’s Newsweek — can you trust these eyes?
