Michele Bachmann Newsweek cover: Queen of Rage [IMAGE]

Michele Bachmann on Newsweek
Michele Bachmann has truly made the big-time: She is featured on the cover of the  August 15 Newsweek.

Of course, this may not be how she would have liked her close-up.

The photo of Bachmann makes her look like some sort of manic street preacher. And the headline, "Queen of Rage," hardly speaks to her Christian values.

Is this some gimmick by Newsweek to goose newstand sales? Cause they couldn't have picked a crazier picture and headline to entice supermarket shoppers.

Here she is in all her glory:

If you want a good look at the queen of rage, look at Michelle Obama. Michelle OBAMA looks angry & spiteful because Michelle despises America. You can see Michelle OBAMA's  rage, hatred, she has of America in her eyes. This is manifested in her husband OBAMA, who is not proud of our country, making us a laughing stock. When I look at BACHMANN - it is a look of a pround American women unlike MICHELLE OBAMA.

Andrea Tanataros had some pretty solid info on the fact that Newsweek deliberately looked for and used the most unflattering photo it could find of Bachman (a failed "lighting test"?).

Over the years I've heard -- and as Dave Barry says, "-- I am NOT making this up --"

- Jonathan Alter call Vietnam "a civil war"

- Anna Quindlen say that John McCain suffered injuries at the hands of "the Viet Cong" (The VC were just about wiped out in Tet '68, and maybe McCain wasn't tortured, Anna -- he must've fallen off the truck on the way to the Christmas party)

. . . and the icing on the Idiot Cake . . . . .- Eleanor Rodham Clift say that the Ft. Hood shooter's $1000 gun was "a Saturday Night Special."  Whoever bought Newsweek for a buck wuz robbed.

Ha, Jay Leno did a bit in his opening monolog last night.He showed this cover and then show a candid picture of nancy pelosi's saying:  "what, her eyes look perfectly fine to me"Yes Nancy, you sure do win the "crazy eyes" prize.

But LOOK OUT!  Here comes Dayton and his medically diagnosed "crazy eyes".

How she allowed this pic to become available to ANYONE tells you she is not capable of seeing how crazy she looks to a lot of people.  Her judgement needs more meds. to support her thinking this is "pretty."

Newsweek is a shameful rag!  Partisan garbage like the Bachmann cover is the reason I, and many others, no longer subscribe to their publication!

WTF! Anyone from Minnesota who has even passing familiarity of Michelle Bachman would find difficult the challenge of claiming that Newsweek's cover image of Bachman does not depict a countenance quite familiar for Bachman.

The idiots on the left will try to destroy her just like they did to Palin. Those dummies will fail to get Bachmann this time around. She he comes across as more articulate and not as easy to make fun of.

That "thousand yard stare" is not from migraine medications.  Best guess: lithium for bipolar disorder.  My worry: the Democrats will find out all the details if she wins the nomination and beat her like a drum.  Easy second term for Obama.  Google Thomas Eagleton.

Since when is being on the cover of Newsweek making it big?  Newsweek isn't even in the top 50 magazines by circulation, and that includes the government mandate that every doctors and dentist have it in stock.  Birds and Blooms has a bigger readership. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...

Newsweek is the filthiest of magazines!!!! Newsweek is, in my opinion, a scumbag organization that supports communism, marxism and the downfall of the USA!!!! NEWSWEEK IS NOT EVEN FIT TO USE AS A CATBOX LINER!!!!

The only "rage" surrounding Michele is the rage she seems to bring out of City Pages and the lefties that believe Ms. Bachmann is angry or bitter. What a hit piece.

The overweening contempt for ordinary American voters dripping from the Team Obama media whores at Newsweek is so obvious in their grotesque smears of Congresswoman Bachmann: "The elderly, the unemployed, the exasperated, and even a few disillusioned Democrats crowd her rallies and cheer her not-going-to-take-it-anymore shtick, even as they recognize some of its inherent contradictions." Into Newsweek's Demented Left echo chamber, no light from the real American political world of fly-over country penetrates. This is the Newsweek that stated in 1980 that "Fringe candidate Ronald Reagan has no chance of getting a elected." This is the Newsweek that has lost 56% of its circulation over the last 10 years.  "Bachmann planned to vote against the debt-ceiling compromise that would ensure the arrival of her Social Security check and the military benefits owed to her sons and nephews." This last statement is an outright fabrication by Newsweek. The Wall St. Journal proved that Social Security payments of $50 billion/month could have been paid 100% out of the SS Trust fund with no net cash drawdown from the Treasury. http://online.wsj.com/article/...

Listening to talk radio disparaging this photo portrayal of Bachmann and how its sexist, derogatory to her, demeaning and more.  I think if the the shoe fits the wild eyed, freaky religious, husband obeying, irrational, fact eschewing little leprechaun, well i guess the shoe fits.

Hey guys didn't that photo just turn out great?     When Newsweek was taking it the voices in my head just kept screaming "look sane look sane look sane."    I think I nailed it right guys?

In related news:

The Bachmann for President campaign has announced that contributions to the campaign have skyrocketed in the last two days.

"It seems that, whenever a less-than-flattering picture of Michele is published somewhere, we see a spike in donations," said her spokesperson.  "We're actually hoping someone can find that picture of her taken in 2007 when she had just stepped out of a torrential downpour and was soaked head-to-toe with her makeup running down her face, her clothes all disheveled and a look in her eye like she had just slaughtered an entire orphanage... Man, would we make bank!"

Way to prove Chuck's point about how calm and sane Tea Party people are.

Michele Bachmann is an anti-gay crusading bigot.  Her hatred leads to do everything she can to use government to make gay people's lives harder.   As a proud liberal I want to use government to make people's lives better and freer.   Congresswoman Bachmann devotes herself to making sure the government picks on a small minority to appease the hate filled bigots that make up the Tea Party.

The photo is great, Michelle.  It's the photos of Michelle Obama, who couldn't look good in a diamond-studded jacket, face-job, they wanted to look good.The lilly-liverd American Media will stop at nothing to keep lilly-livered individuals (like Obama, himself) in the high offices.  They are trash (again, like Obama, himself) and I wouldn't dish out  the price of the magazine for anything.

Keep doing what you're doing and I'll be the first supporter you have...even if I am the only one, which I doubt will ever happen!

Michelle Bachmann (heh) wrote above:

"Michele Bachmann is an anti-gay crusading bigot.  Her hatred leads to do everything she can to use government to make gay people's lives harder."(My comment) Differing on the issue of gay marriage is hardly bigotry. What policy would Michele favor to make the lives of gay people harder? "As a proud liberal I want to use government to make people's lives better and freer."(My comment) Spare us your good intentions with money that doesn't belong to you. Balance the budget...or at least PRESENT a budget."Congresswoman Bachmann devotes herself to making sure the government picks on a small minority to appease the hate filled bigots that make up the Tea Party."(My comment) Um, no she doesn't devote herself to picking on minorities through policies. Seems like you're the one filled with rage.

I think you left out one or two talking points. But AA+ for effort! Maybe AAA next time.

big·ot·ry[big-uh-tree]–noun, plural -ries. 1.stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own.*

Protip: "Differing on the issue of gay marriage," in your context referring to Michele Bachmann's stubborn and complete intolerance of a gay couple's right to marry, is exactly bigotry.
