Michele Bachmann might actually be the worst human being in the world.

Bachmann is locked in a tight race for reelection, judging by both her poll numbers and the increasingly desperate emails her campaign keeps sending me (BILL CLINTON ATTACKS! was yesterday’s). So, in her bid to be moderate, she’s decided that sure, life begins at conception, but women who are getting IVF treatments can go ahead and keep getting IVF treatments the regular way, but rape victims get no such exception. If you’re raped and you get pregnant, sorry, but that violent insemination is precious, and you must give birth to it. Thank goodness Minnesota has Michele Bachmann to bravely stand as a defender of all penis-induced pregnancies.

Twin Cities area rapper and writer Dessa had some harsh but graceful words for Bachmann, not that the Congresswoman will pay her any attention.

What the fuck is this "personhood" shit anyway? Yes, an embryo is "alive". Yes it's "human". But it's a fucking person. A newborn baby isn't even a person. You don't become a person until you're like two years old. I get we can't "abort" newborns as a matter of public policy but fuck this embryo shit already.
