    I'm not a fan of hers either, but that cover is freaking ridiculous.

    As a friend of mine posted on Facebook, a photo of Michele Bachmann that makes her look crazy is like a photo of Michael Jordan that makes him look tall.

    That's funny, but I think it's pretty despicable to intentionally use a photo that makes someone look bad. I don't think they'd do that to Mitt Romney, Obama or any of the other male candidates.

    Not a coincidence that the person who signed off on using that photo is a female.

    If you're using the "Queen of Rage" headline, why not get a photo where she looks mad?

    They did the same thing to Palin last month.

    Michele Bachmann looks like that.

    Not a fan of the cheesecake Palin covers, though.

    Come on, the press has done the same thing to President Obama a million times.

    Magazines always use the bad photo.

    The Obama close-up overkill got pretty ridiculous in 2008.

    1. Covers sell magazines.
    2. Magazine creates intriguing cover.
    3. What part don't you understand?

    There once was a time the Neek masthead meant something.

    That whole cover is clunky in ways I can't even quantify. Maybe it's the dark blue background or the vertical layering or the teeny-tiny teases. Or maybe I just peed myself after staring into her soul-eating eyes.

    Bachmann is cross-eyed.

    Not much Newsweek can do about that.

    Dang Obama's aged ... sheesh I can't fathom what goes on in the minds of people (left or right) who actually want that job.
