Yawn: Protester Tosses Barely-There Bits Of Glitter At Oblivious Rep. Bachmann

It’s official: the anti-Republican presidential glitter protest has now become a national epidemic. After a speech during today’s Right Online conference in Minnesota, a lone protester approached the stage from which Rep. Michele Bachmann was descending and shouted “you can run, but you can’t hide!” at the Republican presidential candidate while tossing some sort of paper in her general direction. It was, to say the least, anticlimactic.

While the first candidate to get fully glittered, Newt Gingrich, actually received a full cereal box of glitter on his lap and hair, and Tim Pawlenty just smiled as pink paper fell onto the table in front of him, Rep. Bachmann doesn’t even seem to notice the protester tossing glitter towards the stage from which she was stepping down.

The description on the YouTube video:

At RightOnline conference in Minneapolis, Michele Bachmann was inducted into the Glitter Hall of Fame by local gay rights advocate Rachel E. B. Lang. Bachmann joins Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty in the anti-gay glitter circle.

You can run but you can’t hide! Let the glitter games begin!


The timing comes right off the heels of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee demanding that these glitter protesters be arrested for “assault” (he probably meant battery) due to unlawful touching. But what of a glitter protest where the breeze seems to keep all the glitter so far from the victim that they don’t even notice they’re being protested?
