They’re All Queens Of Rage

The National Rifle Association has come out defending Michele Bachmann against Newsweek Magazine’s scabrous “Queen of Rage” cover piece on Michele Bachmann:

One of presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s major political opponents is defending her against what it says is blatant sexism on the part of Newsweek magazine.

Wait – did I say National Rifle Association?

Ooop.  I meant…the National Organization of Women!

Monday, the National Organization for Women (NOW) spoke out against Newsweek’s most recent cover, which features an extreme close-up of Michele Bachmann and the title “The Queen of Rage.”

“It’s sexist,” NOW president Terry O’Neill told TheDC. “Casting her in that expression and then adding ‘The Queen of Rage’ I think [it is]. Gloria Steinem has a very simple test: If this were done to a man or would it ever be done to a man – has it ever been done to a man? Surely this has never been done to a man.”

The NOW, of course, is myopic; it happens to (conservative) men in the liberal media all the time.

Still – when even NOW notices that the liberal media observes a toxic double standard when covering women who happen to be conservatives, that should tell you something.

Of course, if you’re award-winning journalist ® Karl Bremer, what it tells you is that them uppity wimmins is gettin’ off the reservation agin:

Gender politics at its worst–NOW defends Michele Bachmann over Newsweek cover. Sad. #stribpol

Remember; it’s only offensive if it doesn’t benefit the left.

  1. Karl Bremer is a mental midget has become obsessed with smearing the Bachmanns. I wonder if we can get someoneto investigate him as thoroughly as he is them? Maybe someone like Boyd Huppert can…Nah!

  2. Wow. Check the temperature in Hell. It may have dropped below 30F. What’s next, Code Pink protesting Obama’s undeclared, unauthorized war in Libya?

  3. The cover shot is right out of middle school. Publish a less than flattering photo of the target and grab a few cheap laughs. Such is the state of the liberal mind. Newsweek and Time used to stand for journalistic integrity–back in the 1960s. Since then, all downhill. That could be said for a lot of print publications. Better buy a few copies as collector’s items, because their days are numbered.

  4. Newsweek is not journalism. These are the same political hacks who told us “We’re all socialists now”. They are right up there next to the Star Tribune on my subscription wish list, right next to Toenail Fungus Monthly Journal.

  5. I seem to remember Newsweek sold for $1 about a year ago. I’m betting it goes a lot cheaper in the not to distant future.
