This Is How Michele Bachmann Will Duck Tough Questions at Tonight’s GOP Debate


Another week, another GOP debate. Tonight’s meetup at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California is the first of three set for the next fifteen days and the first to feature new guy Rick Perry. The “submissive” yet “Minnesota-nice” Michele Bachmann will be back, wielding her go-to stalling technique and non-answer for topics she’d rather avoid, like her husband’s controversial gay reparative therapy clinic or her views on gay marriage. Her brilliantly simple avoidance mantra: “I am running for president of the United States.”
