Picture of the Day: Activists Glitter- Bomb Marcus Bachmann's Office

By Chris Good

Marcus Bachmann, husband of tea-party presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), says his Christian counseling clinic is not anti-gay and that he didn't actually call gays "barbarians," but that didn't stop a group of gay-rights activists from dressing up as barbarians, storming one of Bachmann & Associates' two Minnesota offices, and glitter-bombing the place after the staff told them Marcus Bachmann wasn't around.

Glitter-bombing, by the way, has apparently become a repeatable gay-rights protest tool. Just ask Newt Gingrich. TPM's Evan McMorris-Santoro reports this group was led by the same activist who solo-glitter-bombed Gingrich at a Minnesota Family Council book-signing event in May.
