Newsweek magazine has caught a lot of heat for presenting Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann in a negative light. Those on the right of the political spectrum reflexively call it yet another example of liberal bias in the mainstream media. And even some women's groups have gotten into the act calling this photo "sexist." I don't understand all the fuss. The picture, in my opinion, captures the essence of Rep. Bachmann: a crazed, right wing nut with no discernible qualifications for being president.
