You cannot pick your family members. Who knew that batshit conservative congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was the sister of KCTV5 meteorologist Gary Amble? I didn't until reading Star reporter Dave Helling's story about Bachmann and Amble's blood ties.

"She's incredibly honest, she's incredibly smart ... personally I think she would (make a good president)," Amble told Helling.

That. Is. A. Frightening. Statement.



This won't endear me to Amble, but I stand by the batshit comment. If you need reference, here are 10 of the craziest Bachmann quotes (and that list is a year old, so there are definitely more). Here's one for reference:

"Normalization [of gayness]

through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of

second-graders is take a picture of 'The Lion King' for instance, and a teacher might

say, 'Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay

man?' The message is: 'I'm better at what I do because I'm gay.'"

I love my sister, but if she said shit like that, I wouldn't vote for her. I'd campaign against her (sorry, Mom).
