Michele Bachmann’s Antiquated, Pimpy Holiday Cheer

Check out this ridiculously sexist Christmas letter that Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann wrote in 2003, in which she reinforces gender norms left and right and tries to pimp out all of her children, even going so far as to post a hypothetical singles ad for her son:

Chick magnate (sic) needs wife to put him through med school, clean house, pay bills and run his life. Must be willing to gamble against onslaught of socialized medicine diminishing return on investment.

To top off the creepiness, she lists one of her daughter’s hip measurements, champion’s another’s “modesty,” and calls her son a “female fantasy treasure.”
Happy (batshit crazy) Holidays! Minnesotans, are you seriously going to re-elect this woman?
Thanks to Anna Barberio for the heads up.
