    You act as if you expected better from the media.

    Honestly, it's not a bad pic of her. I would have expected something else.

    That's a fake, I am sure.

    Newsweek would never give Michelle Bachmann a lead story, much less a cover.

    Sure they would. Read the accompanying headline and its subs: The Queen of Rage...that's certainly preaching to their lefty choir. Michele Bachmann on GOD...ditto.
    The Tea Party...double ditto. As for the article for the most part all Newsweek has to do is dust off parts of previous stories about Sarah Palin and sub Bachmann's name. A cover and lead story is just to get folks' attention for the big bashing inside.

    You left off the caption:

    What's the problem?

    Doesn't look like it's photoshopped.

    I'm sure this will be fodder for conspiracy theorists, but notice that all the sub-titles on the other stories in the edition are negative?

    Not a single positive one. Very interesting.

    Newsweek has done this over and over again with conservative women.
    [/ATTACH]

    They have put up the most unflattering photos of conservative women for quite sometime now.
    This is definitely photo-shopped.

    Of course it is. Any idiot should be able to see that.


    Well. Almost any idiot.

    Definitely got the crazy eyes going on.

    I think this is a good pic of her though.
