Is Marcus Bachmann to Michele as Bill was to Hillary '08?


An article in this morning's Washington Post on Marcus Bachmann highlights the octopus-like, unguided missile role he's playing in his wife's run for the presidency.  He sounds almost as helpful to his wife's campaign as Bill was to Hillary's in '08. One can always criticize the source (The WaPo) but it's hard to contest actual on-the-record quotations. Marcus sounds more like poison than catnip to many otherwise pro-Bachmann voters who could tip the 2012 election.  Two points in the Post piece could prove particularly troublesome:

(1)"In an interview last year with a Christian-radio talk show, Marcus Bachmann, a therapist who runs a faith-infused counseling center here, compared homosexuals to 'barbarians' who 'need to be educated, need to be disciplined.'"

(2)“ 'He is her godly husband,' said Peter Bachmann, Dr. [Marcus] Bachmann’s oldest brother..." 'The husband is to be the head of the wife, according to God.' It is a philosophy that Michele Bachmann echoed to congregants of the the Living Word Christian Center in 2006, when she stated that she pursued her degree in tax law only because her husband had told her to. 'The Lord says: Be submissive, wives. You are to be submissive to your husbands,' she said."

This attitude undoubtedly cuts down on marital disputes, but how will it play in Yourtown, USA?
