@DAVIDMDRAIMAN Umm, I don't think this one is real….

@nevadawolfe @DAVIDMDRAIMAN quick google-fu is showing "Christians for Michele Bachmann" is a possible troll group so I doubt this is real.

@DAVIDMDRAIMAN It's fake, been around at least a year..

Draiman responded to several tweets cluing him in that he got it wrong. First he claimed it was just a question.
@DAVIDMDRAIMAN @AvatarOfBro Michelle Bachman didn't run it. Deplorable, yes, but get your facts straight.

From “just askin’ questions” to “fake, but accurate”:
@DAVIDMDRAIMAN if you believe that's real, welcome to the internet.

Just in case Draiman’s tweet disappears, here’s the obviously fake parody ad that got him worked up.
