Fagala-Fearing Congressman Trent Franks Backs Michele "Pray Away the Gay" Bachmann in GOP Presidential Primary

Arizona Congressman Trent Franks -- best known for his fear of homosexuals, his belief that black people were better off under slavery, and tackling the non-existent problem of race/gender-based abortions -- has endorsed his Congressional colleague Michele Bachmann in the GOP presidential primary.

Additionally, Franks will serve as the Congressional co-chair for her campaign, Bachmann announced today.

"I know Michele is right on the issues that are important to conservatives across the country and I know she won't back off," Franks says in a statement released this morning.

Unlike Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's endorsement of Texas Governor Rick Perry, Franks' nod is anything but surprising -- he and Bachmann seem to see eye-to-eye on the (gulp) important stuff, like keeping gay people unwed and out of the military.

Bachmann, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, is at the bottom of the pack of the crowded field of GOP presidential wannabes. Nationally, she's currently polling at 4-percent, trailing even Herman Cain, whose campaign has been plagued with sex scandals.

Franks is just another one of those closet repubs.  He's fighting against something that he is...a Homosexual!

Trent Franks, another testament to what's wrong with Arizona.

  Trent Franks' prioritization of what he considers to be "issues" just proves to me what I already knew - this whole election is a farce.  Almost all of the contenders are farcical and furthermore I highly doubt that any of them actually wants the job.

Trent Franks is a corrupt and mentally sick imbecile who needs and deserves to be booted out on his ass in the next Congressional elections.

His hatred of homosexuals is quite similar to Pearce's hatred of illegals. Homosexuality is neither a crime nor a sin.

Michele Bachmann will lose her candidacy for POTUS.

With Arpaio endorsing Perry, now the very superstitious Franks endorsing Bachmann, the Arizona connection is the kiss of death. peace

That picture of her "Taking Down" that corn dog, is actually a demonstration of a technique she uses to turn gay men straight. Markus gets her "Special Therapy" on a daily basis to maintain his heterosexuality.

That's a mental picture I didn't need. Thanks a lot....

So a homophobic dope endorses another homophobic dope.  What else is new?

Michelle probably hates gays because she knows deep, deep down that she's married to one who is so deep in the closet he can't even admit it to himself, much less to her. Sort of the same way that Michelle's almost irrational hatred of Obama--she never misses an opportunity to bash him even when it's off topic---reflects the fact that deep inside she has a mad crush on him and is absolutely starved for male sexual  attention that she isn't getting from dear hubby...but again she can't admit it, even to herself. Oh the joys of an ignorant and repressive fundamentalist upbringing....gotta love it.
