Ken Avidor and the Dump Bachmann Blog

July 19, 2011

Ken Avidor and a group of concerned Minnesotans are blogging about Michele Bachmann. The Daily Beast has an article on their efforts. Read it to get an overview of their efforts.

Whether someone lives in Minnesota or not, now that Bachmann is getting national attention, it's time for everyone to pay serious attention to her flaws. I've posted about Ken, who is a friend, before, in hopes that more people will read the work he's doing.

I'm so dismayed about the various things Bachmann does, that I can't even talk politics with my friends any more because I start to groan. We have serious problems that need immediate attention. Bachmann is not the answer.

Please check out the article, and read The Dump Bachmann blog.

(Thank you Marsha for pointing out the article.)

    Love his Bachmann trading cards, too! Thanks for posting this, Roz.

    Alas, I cannot read the blog because Bachmann and her ilk are so repellent to me that I dive into despair. Then I worry that sending people like me into despair is part of the great GOP plan. But then I have to cut myself off anyway. I’m glad your friend is fighting the good fight, and I can only hope that the American electorate starts getting smarter.

    Karen, I totally understand. Sometimes I have to lie down on the floor and remind myself to breathe!

    I love your work and I”ll also vote for Bachmann for President if I get a chance. I hope I’m still welcome.

    Tim, I welcome all readers. I hope that they find something of value here.

    But it is interesting to me that when I do something like write about two gay ducks and support of gay marriage I lose 200 readers (I’ve got plenty more, so I’m fine).

    Then I write about Bachmann and you say you are going to vote for her and you’re still going to read my blog and I have to wonder what the disconnect is in your personal philosophy.

    I believe in just about the opposite of everything she speaks about and pontificates about (and my writing reflects that as much as I can possibly make it do so)—I’m for equality, equal opportunity, compassion. I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in transparency of government. I believe in civil discourse. I respect intelligence instead of vilify it. I don’t marginalize people on the basis of their race, creed, or sexual orientation.

    Given all that and more, and the fact that you’re a supporter of Bachmann, I just don’t see how it isn’t painful for you to visit here everyday. It’s just such a disconnect.

    I hope you can take another look at Bachmann, and see what she’s doing.

    Maybe you’ll find a way to stay, but if not I wish you and any other departing readers, all the best in their journeys through life.

    I hope those journeys involve a lot of sketching, because when we sketch, especially something as great as Nature, we see the truly magnificent design of life, which includes gay ducks and so much more.

    Bachmann comes from a place of fear and scarcity.

    I live everyday from a position of love and plenty, which is to be shared.
