Michele Bachmann vis-a-vis Charles Manson (a fair and balanced examination)

In my last entry, I argued that Newsweek did not try to make Tea Party favorite presidential candidate Michele Bachmann look “crazy” by featuring a certain photograph of Ms. Bachmann on the latest Newsweek cover.

I attempted to support my argument by showing other, much less flattering photographs of Ms. Bachmann that most definitely make her look crazy.

The point I was trying to make was that, if Newsweek really wanted to make Michele Bachmann look crazy, they could have and would have easilly used a less flattering photograph of her.

A number of you commented that Bachmann’s eyes remind you of notorious serial killer Charlie Manson.

I don’t think that is true, but, in the spirit of fairness, I will let you judge for yourself.  Michele Bachmann’s eyes look like this:

Whereas Charlie Manson’s eyes look like this:

As you can see, any similarity is entirely superficial.

  1. There are many perks to having a crazy person in the White House. The Chinese and the Russians and everbody else who hates us would be peeing in their pants! They would be so afraid! Even those who don’t hate use would be afraid, too, but that doesn’t matter. They all hate us and are jealous of our way of life. So I say let’s show ’em all and elect Michele Bachmann to be our President!

    Michele Bachmann for President: because the world is crazy anyway.

  2. I’m inclined to agree with Anon. And let’s face it, some of the people the US has gone head to head with in recent decades aren’t strangers to the old crazy tag themselves.

    At the very least, the end of the world as we know it would be mighty entertaining.

  6. Well, we all know “Mr. Batshit” worked SO well for W and Reagan.

    Of course it DID work for Nixon, but then Nixon, for all his (OhSoVERYMany) flaws, wasn’t ACTUALLY crazy.

    Reality still matters. Sort of. I think.

  8. The more that comes out on Michele Bachmann, the more of a total loon she looks to be. Mother Jones found a 2002 video that she made about the dangers of education reform that offers this basic argument:

    Education reform efforts —-> national curriculum control —-> Nazism, totalitarianism, communism and another Holocaust.

    And the video is called Guinea Pig Kids II

  9. ” USA today she is quoted as saying : “What people recognize is that there’s a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward,” Bachmann said on Jay Sekulow’s radio show.

    Seriously the soviet union?

    what about the Ottomans she concerned about them too, or the Aztecs?
