The actual pledge she signed can be viewed here - http://thinkprogress.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/The-Family-Leader-Presidential-Pledge.pdf

The exact language related to Islam is:

"Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control"

Coverage of the fact that she signed it:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota, quickly signed the pledge Thursday, while an aide to to former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said he never signs any pledges. A spokesman for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, said the congressman has reservations, while a representative of President Barack Obama’s Democratic campaign committee declined comment.

Yep, because only in America can politicians pledge to reject and defend religious liberty at the same time and still be taken seriously. There's no country as ridiculously entertaining as this one. I love it!
She's a good gal!

I would pledge to kick the sh*t out of anyone who brings up religion in any way, shape, or form during an election.

The framers of the constitution were particularly interested in leaving religion out of politics. What religion or superstition somebody practices should be as taboo as what he does in his bedroom. Don't ask, don't tell.

Any presidential candidate who even utters something like "Obama is a Muslim" or "Romney is a Mormon" should be immediately disqualified from the race. Any elected official using a candidate's gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation should also be immediately replaced.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
