Bachmann praises Iowans for their rejection of gay marriage

Addressing a crowd of home-schooling advocates in Des Moines yesterday, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann applauded Iowans and their efforts to reject the concept of gay marriage.

Repeatedly referring to activist judges as "our black robed masters", Bachmann went on to praise Iowans for the way they handled the gay marriage controversy in their state.

"If you have judges who thwart the will of the people, you send them packing. Thank you Iowa, for what you have done to uphold the Constitution," Bachmann said in front of a crowd of thousands in Des Moines.

Supreme Court Justices Marsha Ternus, David Baker, and Michael Streit were all thrown out of office in November by angry voters after these activist judges decided to create religious theology and declare that gay marriage now existed in Iowa. Iowa voters told them otherwise.

Bachmann, a new entrant into the 2012 Presidential race, continued to play to her base in Iowa. She reminded voters that she was a "7th generation Iowan" and that she supported the evangelicals and their desires to home school their children.

Bachmann is slowly becoming a force in Iowa. If Mike Huckabee doesn't run for president, Bachmann has a very good chance in the Iowa Caucus. The Caucus takes place on February 6, 2012.
