"Michele doesn't comment on any of it"

In the last GOP debate, some participants say that the audience boos for a gay soldier asking a question about Don't Ask Don't Tell couldn't be heard clearly on the stage. Others admit otherwise. After the fact, ABC asked all the candidates for comment. Michele Bachmann's response leaps out:
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s spokeswoman Alice Stewart said in an email to ABC News, “There was booing and cheering throughout the debate – Michele didn’t comment on any of it.”
Let's imagine equivalent responses in other situations that test a public figure's moral mettle.

Teen suicides in reaction to school bullying:

"Students are cruel and kind to each other every day. Michele doesn't comment on any of it."

House UnAmerican Activities Committee inquisitions:

"Public figures and civil servants are asked tough questions in Congressional hearings every day. Michele doesn't comment on any of it."

Kristallnacht:
"Acts of vandalism are unfortunately a fact of life in our cities, and so are cheerful commercial transactions.  Michele doesn't comment on any of it."

That's usually the way with those who pray at the street corners.
