Don Surber:

Memeorandum is an aggregator of political blogs.

I suppose it is supposed to be in the center.

But this was its hubbub on Friday night:

Cheryl Contee / Jack & Jill Politics:

Michelle Bachmann Signs Pledge that Says Black Children Better Off During Slavery —  In Iowa, there’s a social conservative pledge called “The Marriage Vow – A Declaration of Dependence upon Marriage and Family” that is anti-abortion, anti-same sex marriage, anti-divorce etc etc that GOP candidates are being urged to sign.

The Note:

Bachmann Signs Pledge for Ban on Porn and Same-Sex Marriage —  ABC News’ Russell Goldman (@GoldmanRussell) reports:  —  Michele Bachmann became the first presidential candidate to sign a pledge, vowing to support a constitutional amendment that defines marriage between a man and a woman, and which calls for a ban on all pornography.

The fauxgressives were all over the Bachmann story like stink on shit. Friday was the day the gloomy unemployment news was released and the number one story in Left Blogistan was Michele Bachmann.

But what about today’s news that unemployment is even worse than reported Friday?:

As you can see, as far as the “A and B list lefty blogs are concerned it’s {{crickets}}

  1. I’ve yet to see a link to the actual full document Bachmann signed, and her full comment on it.

    I haven’t seen the full document either, only HuffnPuff translations of it. It did make me laugh though, it allegedly contains a promise of fidelity to your spouse and a promise not to support porn. Bachmann jumped up and signed it, but not one single male Republican did. Their offices all said they were still “in negotiations” or had no comment.

    Hmm, which parts are they trying to negotiate their way out of? : )

      They don’t want to alienate those crucial “cheating dog” and “wanker” voting blocs

      The document was a big nothingburger. Other than a no gay marriage amendment (which is never gonna pass and they know it), it was a mishmash of “Yeah, I support traditional values and kids and families and not sleeping around and generally not being a skank or a horndog.”

      There was no real mention of any legislation, or govt policies, or law-passing. It was a sop to “personal principles”, not a legislative agenda. I personally find it simple-minded and trite, but not the big threat to the country that the hysterical Professional Left is making it out to be.

        Pledges are really meaningless. People have run whole campaigns on promises without meaning a single word. Congress also likes their Declarations of Congressional Intent, where they all sign a meaningless piece of non legislation expressing support for something they’re not going to do a darn thing about.

        Nobody ever wants to talk about Dems and their loyalty oaths. In my state it was a real problem during the last election, some Dems refused to cast a vote because they would have had to sign a loyalty oath and they opposed the idea on principle. Ha! I signed mine so I could vote, but boy oh boy did I violate it!Somewhere between being called a racist and a bitter small towner, I lost all my loyalty.

          You obviously know Dick

          Grover Norquist’s tax pledge seems to have plenty of teeth.

    • JeanLouise says:

      Santorum promised to sign it but, apparently, he hasn’t returned the signed form yet.

      I’ve seen the full pledge in a couple of places. I think that there’s a link at Tennessee Guerilla Women.

      • JeanLouise says:

        Huntsman has said that he won’t sign any pledges and Gary Johnson called it discriminatory. I respect both of them for the stands that they’ve taken.

    Brings back memories of reading MediaMatters during the primaries 2008. Mostly they engaged in inaccuracies written/ said about McCain. Sometimes they’d correct inaccuracies about Obama. But I looked in vain most of the time for them to correct any inaccuracies about Hillary Clinton. Both puzzling and frustrating.

    But reading their “About us”

    Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.

    it sort of makes sense as what was mostly directed at Hillary Clinton was progressive misinformation in the U.S. media.
