->'''L:''' You need someone to be your right hand, someone to help you. A Crown Princess. The normal process is to find out what colleagues are in prison or are drug addicts, and thereby unable to fulfill their roles as parents. Then you find out where their kids play football, and you get involved. You cheer them on for a couple of years, no matter how bad they are -- actually, the worse, the better. That way, gradually you take on the role of the parent until, in the end, you have a loyal helper that will walk through fire for you.\\
'''Joe:''' It sounds like a kind of entrapment you're suggesting. An unsavory entrapment.\\
'''L:''' Call it what you want. [[FamilyValuesVillain But if you believe at all in the effects of good parenting]], that kid will have much greater opportunities with you as a mentor than without.

->Eidsmoe’s rise to fame is primarily related to the fact that Michelle Bachmann was one of his students while she attended Coburn Law School at Oral Roberts University. Indeed, Bachmann describes Eidsmoe as “one of the professors who had a great influence on me”, and Bachmann his research assistant on the 1987 book “Christianity and the Constitution”...One may wonder how Bachmann aligns herself with Eidsmoe’s opinion that “women must submit to their husband”, but come to think of it Bachmann has in fact said precisely that herself. Bachmann also seems to have got her theocratic sympathies from Eidsmoe... A significant source of evil in the world. Should be approached with care and preferably not at all.
