In New York Post, James Lileks complains about City Pages' coverage of Michele Bachmann
|James Lileks has a beef with Blotter.|
The column for the Murdoch-owned paper is an attempt by Lileks to explain Minnesota politics, and Bachmann in particular, to a skeptical nation.
Along the way, Lileks--known for his bizarre transformation from genial City Pages columnist into xenophobic conservative apologist-- fires a shot across our bow.
Here's Lileks's not-so-subtle allusion to Blotter's recent Bachmann coverage:
A local blog, devoted entirely to collecting every atom of Bachmannphobia on the planet went a step further, and Photoshopped her face on some hideous quasi-human creature with deformed infants suckling at its teats. That was a mild day for them.
