Bachmann and the Marriage Vow

I love trashing Michelle Bachmann and how she keeps putting her foot in it.

Last week, as presidential candidate, she signed something called the "Marriage Vow", which is a pledge among presidential candidates (well, those who sign) to, among other things, fight against same-sex marriage, fight against Sharia law (this is a problem?), fight against porn, and basically return to family values stuff.

The Marriage Vow became controversial because it included this stunning statement:

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."

… a rather stupid statement which had Bachmann and others to assure people they were anti-slavery.  (Also, the facts of that statement aren't true.)

Anyway, the ladies from The View were cooking with gas about this today:
