He likes the ones the Establishment prefers like Mr. Gardasil aka status quo aka Bush III, with ones that talk but don't walk. He doesn't really want any change.

Don't forget ... she'll convert all the gays, too.

According to NBC News, Bachmann attended a non-denominational church near Des Moines along with her husband Marcus. She was holding her personal copy of the Bible.

Bachmann read to the congregation from the book of Philippians, NBC reported, saying, "Whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, think well of these things."

The pastor, Jeff Mullen, reportedly gave a 30-minute presentation on his church's beliefs, including its disapproval of homosexuality. He also showed a video from a man who claimed to have been gay before having a conversation with God.

The Minnesota clinic run by Marcus Bachmann has been accused of employing religion-based therapy to attempt to make homosexuals straight. He has denied the allegations.

I know that. I think she has integrity on that. Plus she has said on TV we could just defund Obamacare too. No other R had the balls to say that—that I know of anyway.

What is it with women having the balls in politics these days? Has feminism demasculated our men?

How do we know if her eyes slightly crossing is not Photoshop either? They didn't bother to airbrush as they did Michelle, always a given after a photoshoot. Plus how do we know they didn't drain some color from her face in Photoshop either. It's obviously not a very attractive shot of her. Based on the copy it looks intentionally unflattering too.

Well, she wouldn't I presume...that's usually up to other professionals like an art director for one or the photography studio who does the shoot or even others. I certainly don't think she asked to be shot looking nearly cross-eyed.

BTW I am an art director. 'Er was when working and I plan to return.

It's not that some magazines aren't liberal -- it's that the SPECTRUM of media available has PLENTY of liberal-leaning and conservative-leaning sources. It's absolutely ridiculous that the "right" continues to ride this horse that has no legs at all...

Maybe they should have used this one:

So you're saying that the cover shot - the one that all her fans say makes her look crazy - is the one that does NOT make her look crazy. I'm going to have to ponder that one... :hmmm:

Love it. The quicker the media gets her and Palin out of the race the better.

The only path to victory for Obama is to use the Harry Reid 2010 model -- make your opponent scarier than your own policies (since we all know there aren't many winning policies for Obama to run on).

John Stewart took a parting shot at Newsweek for it. Calling it " You've got to go pretty far out of your way to find a crappy photo of Michele Bachmann, and you did...why?"
