Awful… Newsweek’s Sexist Bachmann Cover So Nasty Even NOW Issues a Statement

Newsweek strikes again.
The far left magazing gave Michele Bachmann, a successful tax lawyer, the crazy treatment this week. Could they have found a worse picture?

Not only did they find the most unflattering photo of the conservative presidential candidate, their hit piece was just as bad.

It was so nasty that NOW even rejected the hit piece.

NOW, an organization that has received some criticism for its deafening silence when prominent conservative women like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are lampooned in the national press, has come out strongly against the depiction of Rep. Bachmann as the “Queen of Rage.”

“Who has ever called a man ‘The King of Rage?,’ NOW president Terry O’Neil told TheDC. “The ‘Queen of Rage’ is something you apply to wrestlers or somebody who is crazy. They didn’t even do this to Howard Dean when he had his famous scream.”

    Why was she silent while Palin and the tea party were blamed for murder? I think Michelle and her new friend Ed Rollins can handle this on their own!

  • Bob Z

    I don’t think she has a chance against Obama.

  • patman

    Things like this are all a part of the grand liberal dream.

    Put her up for the sympathy vote, then challenge her with the smear crew when she wins. She’s too easy of a target. I like her, but she’s not gonna win the country.

    Remember lipstick on a pig?

    If Captain Zero has any chance at all, we’re doomed. All but the wealthy, and, of course, government-which will double in size if he’s re-elected. If they say he’s re-elected, does that mean that he is legally elegible this time, since nothing was done that last time? F**K me to tears. When will he get his due?

    They mock who they fear…

    It’s just possible that NOW is waking up to an interesting fact: some of their better fellow-travelers from the past are hanging out with the Tea Parties, because the fiscal conservatives have a point, and the Democrats are relying on appeals to blatant sexism and racism to avoid dealing with that point.

    And they like Rodham???

    Oh, yeah. Here’s the point.

    Former Dem. Congressman Tom Perriello admits that Congress will not balance budget unless forced. “If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing.”


    typical lefty propoganda BS….however she would have no chance against hussein obama…also palin for that matter will not have a chance…that would be a war from the media that they will not lose…very sad

    Political operatives in media and Hollywood likes to depict women as gold diggers, whores and abused women. That is their typical kinda girl they fancy. Michelle Bachmann exudes admirable virtue and strength.

    Don’t even care what this rag magazine makes Michelle Bachmann look like , they could even make her look worse than what they did on that cover , and she still is 100 times more pretty than any of the women the Dimbocrats have to offer….

    Piglosi ,Hiillary, Boxer, Kagan, DW schultz, Claire Bear, I could go on but I don’t want to ruin my dinner…….

    It shouldn’t be very difficult to learn the specific people responsible for this.

    From the market established value – $1 rag sheet. But keep your powder dry. From NOW, a devote jihadist propagandist of the Dims’ It’s a trap. They’re trying to re-establish some creds, before their Messiah, Chicago Jesus, needs their help, in his re-election as God Emperor of Earth. Frank Herbert was so wrong.

    Apparently the writer of this hit piece spends too much time at the roller derby. Who in the heck reads Newsweek? Obviously, the intent is to have a quote that can be used adnauseum /to attack a real American. Michelle Bachman deserves better.

    Next thing you know, they will blame the S&P downgrade on the Tea Party…

    We should tie their hands.

    Then we should hang them.

    Reminds me of the unflattering pics someone printed of McCain. They shot from a low angle looking up with light below his face, made him look like a vampire or something evil.

    The leftist media is rather childish aren’t they?

    re: #14

  • Got Billy Ayers on Speed Dial

    Doesn’t the campaign get a chance to determine the photo used on the cover of a major magazine?

    If not, there should be some way to prevent the juveniles at Newsweek from such despicable behavior.

    I’m for Gov. Palin but I know the Bachmanns well, Michele is way more attractive. This is downright mean.
