Bachman's Secret Strategy To Make Palin Look Good By Self-Destructing Outrageous Statements?

Further to my previous post "Gay's Commence Bachman Destruction-Palin's Advantage Is Their Love" where I set out the, justifiable, howls of outrage and condemnation of Michele Bachman's signing "The Marriage Vow" by the Gay community who see a very real threat to the social gains they have made, the wider blogging/MSM is now getting in on the act as per "Memeorandums latest list below..
The pledge is being interpreted not only for the support of marriage, which by itself is of course a positive thing, but  aspects which seem to approve slavery as a positive institution, and also the pledge seems to approve the banning of pornography-however that may be defined.
In their rush to get readers eyeballs the MSM pumped up Bachman's candidacy as the latest, greatest bright shiny object, without bothering to consider her past, flubs and outrageous statements. A cynic might conclude that the liberal media sees a Bachman candidacy as the only path for their true love, President Obama, to be re-elected given the terrible economy. However, the reality is that declining readership precludes even that, and sensationalism was their main motive.
The media, at least some anyway, had a residual shred of decency, and Washington Beltway insiders Douglas Kahn and Eleanor Clift  "Bachman's Rise And Fall" couldn't stomach the charade and ran a column, which is quite prescient in retrospect (although it would be hard not to have come to their conclusion give Bachman's record).
but the Gay community sounded the real mass alarm, followed very quickly by a wider commentariat-including Rachel Maddow who has a foot in both camps, and who confirms the tenor of my previous post that the Gay community will show Bachman no mercy, and have influence out of all proportion to their numbers.
This leaves Palin, who is adored by many in the Gay community, once again showing her brilliant strategic qualities, as she has let each new bright shiny object rise and self-destruct whilst finalizing her decision to run or not. 

If she does she  can only look better for Bachman having self-destructed, and will appear in an even better light to the Gay community. Further, whilst her support from those quarters will be even more firm, the possible antagonism by the liberal Gay element will be blunted by the comparison with Bachman, whom a cynic might think is deliberately making Palin, whom she secretly wants to win, look good in contrast.
