8-Year Old Stuns Michelle Bachmann

If you haven't seen it yet, here is your chance.  An eight year old activist stunned Michelle Bachmann on the campaign trail in South Carolina.  Not that its that hard to stun Michelle Bachmann.  I don't want to give away the punchline, but watch the video and you'll understand what makes this such an amazing thing.

In case you missed it, this activist whispered to Bachmann...

"My mommy's gay, but she doesn't need any fixing."
This little kid is my hero.  I don't care if mommy put him up to this, he still had the courage to tell this to a complete stranger, in front of a crowd, in a strange location.  This child's bravery is beyond words.

And apparently its beyond Bachmann's words as well, simply responding "Ba-Bye."  I don't think her campaign prepared her with a canned response, a soundbite, or a one-liner to respond to an eight year old activist who couldn't speak more true.

The Republican party ladies and gentlemen.

p.s.  I was thinking of including music in at the end of each of my posts in the form of a youtube video.  Its really just for fun and cause I like music.  Thoughts?  Should I do it?  Would it take away from the commentary?
