Lemon continued: “I told them, asked them not to elbow me. And then her husband Marcus started doing the same thing. And then he elbowed me into the cart. And I said, ‘You just pushed me into the cart.’ And he goes, ‘No, you did it yourself.’ It was just, I don’t know, why they would choose to do that."
When Bachmann Press Secretary Alice Stewart was asked if she, or Marcus Bachmann, pushed Lemon, she responded simply, “Our number one priority is the safety and protection of Michele Bachmann.” Things were terribly crowded, and it appears that everyone was struggling to get by in the video below, so this looks to be an accident. But as CNN and The Advocate are both reporting the story, we'll wait and see if Lemon speaks out on the subject again. CNN itself adds:
It’s typical for presidential candidates, especially ones as popular as Bachmann, to wind up in a crush of supporters and reporters at campaign events. But Friday’s episode was unusual." [Source]
Oh my! It seems that my girl Michele is somewhat of a virago. Anyway,that was Don Lemon talking about his run in with Michele Bachmann and her husband, Marcus. (BTW, Michele Bachmann has won the Iowa straw poll, so girlfriend is legit.) Now Don Lemon, bless his heart, has come out and declared that he is Gay. Do you think he makes Marcus a little uncomfortable? Hey, I am just putting it out there. Cause, you know, "the streets be talkin".
Finally, I see that Governor Big Hair has officially launched his presidential bid. Nice. He chose an interesting place to launch it from. Watching Rick Perry on stage one can't help but think that he is an anachronism. A man so out of place in modern day A-merry-ca (He wants to take his state and secede for crying out loud!) that he actually appeals to folks who want to go back to that Ozzie & Harriet era.
But I am going to leave Governor Big Hair alone. After all, the man just kicked off his campaign. There will be lots of time to talk about his immigration problem, his Catholic problem, his economics problem, his Gardasil problem, (that's an interesting one, look it up) and, of course, his hypocrisy problem.
Oh well, I wish Governor Big Hair well. The next few months should be interesting.
