Just before Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was scheduled to speak at California's Republican party convention last night at L.A. Live, a flash mob emerged.

Sponsored by the group Courage Campaign, the mob was protesting Bachmann's anti-gay political stances with a dance choreographed to — what else? — "Like A Prayer."

Bachmann is on a Left West Coast tour. She spoke at a Tea Party rally in Orange County last night before speaking at California's GOP convention last night.

Political protests against Bachmann's stances on social issues have been particularly colorful: glitter-bombing, terrifying condom wrappers as well as Madonna-inspired choreography.
