If you aren’t terror stricken yet by the thought of Michele Bachmann as president of the United States, you will be once you see the cover of this week’s Newsweek magazine. The perma-panic look on her face is the same look that afflicted many of us when we heard those horrifying words that she was running for president.
Nevertheless, why Newsweek chose this photo and the headline “Queen of Rage” is beyond me especially after reading the article which is actually titled “Bachmann: Tea Party Queen” or simply “Tea Party Queen” depending on where on TheDailyBeast.com (Newsweek’s online presence) you’re looking at. Additionally the article never mentions rage nor the fact that she is the queen of it in any way.
And you can be sure that folks on the right are furious:
I don’t know about you, but when I want articles on women that read like bitter Summer’s Eve scripts, I turn to Newsweek. – Dana Loesch
Apparently, Newsweek is the new News of the World just with smaller fonts sizes and minus the phone hacking. They’re even popularizing the hashtag #QueenOfRage on Twitter and, yeah, we’re gonna use it.
