Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum apparently aren’t close readers, having signed a pledge from a Christian group in Iowa that said black families were stronger under slavery.
“A child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the U.S.A.'s first African-American President," read the offending passage, which has since been removed.
Bachmann tried to distance herself by saying she supported only the “candidate’s vow” section of the pledge, which her spokeswoman says she still supports.
So either she:
A. Signs things without bothering to read them
B. Believes that you can sign a document even though parts of it are so offensive that you must eventually demand that they be removed
It’s getting to the point that you can’t make this stuff up.
Honestly, I feel like Bachmann’s campaign would be better off if she just stopped talking for at least a month.
