More Michele Bachmann Hypocrisy: Elvis vs. Elton John

  Michele Bachmann, as you may know, thinks children can be corrupted by Elton John:

At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmann said the "normalization" of homosexuality would lead to "desensitization": "Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of 'The Lion King' for instance, and a teacher might say, 'Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?' The message is: I'm better at what I do, because I'm gay."

So, um, why is she seen in this campaign-trail video dancing to a song written by a guy who was once convicted of transporting a teenage girl across state lines for immoral purposes, and who later owned a club where he allegedly engaged in surreptitious videotaping in the women's bathroom, an appropriate accompaniment to a personal videotape he allegedly once made involving a woman not his wife and his own urine? And as for the singer of the song Bachmann is dancing to, shouldn't she be concerned that he famously enjoyed watching women wrestling after they'd stripped down to white panties, and also reportedly enjoyed asking strippers to wrestle his pet chimpanzee?

Is that really an appropriate song for Bachmann and her husband to dance to? 


 

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot. Elvis and Chuck Berry? Straight. So no harm done.
