Kids Say


Art Linkletter, for those who are too young to remember, had a long running afternoon TV show called House Party.  One of the segments near the end of the show was Kids Say The Darndest Things where Mr. Linkletter would interview, one at a time five young children between about four to ten years of age.

This young man would fit right in

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared stunned Sunday after an 8-year-old South Carolina boy told her that his gay mother didn’t “need any fixing.”

The candidate was signing her memoir Core of Conviction for a scant few supporters at a Myrtle Beach Books-A-Million when 8-year-old Elijah stepped forward with a message.

“You said it, but I think my ears were too far away,” Bachmann told the boy as she leaned over the table, pulling him close.

“Ms. Bachmann, my mommy’s gay but she doesn’t need any fixing,” Elijah whispered into her ear.

The dumbfounded GOP hopeful slowly stood up with her wide eyes glaring at the mother.

“Bye, bye,” she waived.

During her visit to Books-A-Million Sunday, Bachmann was also reportedly “mic checked” by Occupy Myrtle Beach.

Elijah gives me hope.  At eight years old, he already has a big set.
