When Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann signed a pledge that claimed black Americans were better off as slaves than they are today, she apparently hadn’t read it in detail.
Her campaign said Saturday that she actually didn’t agree with that part of the pledge.
By signing the pledge created by Iowa-based Christian group The Family Leader, Bachmann agreed to opposes same sex marriage, oppose Sharia law and ban “all forms of pornography.”
The “marriage vow” also begins by noting that the children of slaves were better off than African-American children today.
Two things: First, awesomely presidential attention to detail, Michele. Bravo. Second, how the hell does a lawyer sign something without reading it? Just curious.
I call bullshit on her excuse here. She knew damn well what she was signing and is trying to backtrack now that she’s been called on it.
