Michele Bachmann will be on the cover of Newsweek next week, and many people are saying they picked a slightly less than flattering picture of her. Check it out for yourself, and see what you think. (Image below)
Michele Bachmann's Newsweek cover
the caption should be “my husband did what to your husband???”
That’s just her face. That’s the way she looks. The joke is on the people crying about it! She posed for it, it’s not like they photographed her in mid-grimace while speaking!
She’s like Reagan: Likes to wear makeup so thick you can stick a nickel in it.
And those let-me-tell-you-about-Jesus eyes are… creepy.
This picture shows exactly why Botox is really a bad idea.
Is that crazed look the result of Botulism injection,
or is she just crazy ?
This is the same person who said that USA loosing Tripple-A rating was no big deal, now look at the world-wide mess the stock market is in now.
I think the picture is an accurate representation.
If the shoe fits wear it, and oh how well she wears it !
She thinks she’s smiling and looking good like a cheerleader does, but a cheerleader at least looks human.
What the hell are they bitchin’ about? That picture IS Bachmann in a nutshell… so to speak.
Mantra for Americans in the 21st Century: The Female ego is not well understood.
You know, I never thought of that, but you might be on to something John!
I’m against what the tea party stands for and am appalled at Bachmann’s stances on issues. However, to make fun of her appearance and to say she looks “mentally ill” is simply uncalled for and just an example of reverse intolerance. You would not tolerate it if it was happening to President Obama.
Much worse has been said about Obama. I don’t get why Bachmann is so prominent? But in any case I also agree that we need to treat them like we would want them to treat us. On another note though, I have always thought that she had an aspect of “creepy” written all over her face.
She should have prayed away the day that her eyes were fixed in that way !!!
I’ve never seen her looking any different.
That was my first thought—–“does she ALWAYS look that way?” And if so, why hasn’t anyone pointed it out as, um, less than flattering???!!
It’s ironic that the Bachmann campaign represents the best chance for getting a gay man into the White House.
It’s uncanny how appropriate that picture is.
APPROPRIATE… You NAILED it!
So she is neither pretty or smart. :D
NW Photographer: “Michele, relax and look into the camera; smile.”
Michele: “I am looking into the camera, my skin is too tight.”
NW Photographer: “Bring your gaze down, look straight ahead.”
Michele: “LOOK! My people, they’ve come for me!”
NW Photographer: “Crew: we’ve lost her. Can you get a two-wheel dolly, load her up and wheel her out of here. I think they brought us the wax version of Michele by mistake.”
Me: I’m going to h**l for this, I just know it.
Thank you so much, people! I casually read this and within minutes found myself ROTFLMFAO! Tears were rolling down my cheeks! You guys, except for two who didn’t get it, but you guys gave me the best laugh I’ve had in a month-and everything all of you said was so fffnn true! WOW!
According to the Manual: “Your basic 1956 model X-480-Female model robotic android did seem to have a few bugs in the facial expression control and intelligence modules on some of the factory seconds. The fault was chiefly noticed in the eyes but was not seen as a major problem needing recall as these were, in fact, factory seconds anyway, sold without warranty primarily to the US government for small arms and enlisted sex surrogacy. Few complaints were received, and these were almost always in conjunction with the units being used for operations outside of stated design specifications; ie: general intelligence, history, math, science, integrity, veracity, public service. As a side note, these factory second units also had trouble with identifying non-white units and human operators and compromised floating point belief system processor.”
Or another Jack classic:
“Who’s the head bull-goose loony around here?”
She’s wearing the wrong kind of jacket.
I read John Boehner were riding in the same plane with Michelle Bachmann. Boehner stated to Bachamnn he could throw out a $1000 dollar bill out the window and make someone happy today. Bachmann replyed, I could throw 10 $100 bills and make 10 people happy today. The pilot over hearing the conversation leaned over to his co-pilot. I could throw both these big shots off the plane and make 256 million people happy today.
Funny, but there is one flaw to this joke. Neither of these turds are concerned with making anyone happy, other than themselves.
Why give attention to this mental defect? You saw what happened when another lunatic with hateful views and religious fanaticism becae chancellor of Germany 79 years ago…..
Just want to say a big THANK YOU to Newsweek for publishing a picture showing the entire country what we in Minnesota have known for a long time. She is an angry, horny(supposed straight husband, yea right), bitchy old woman. Who incidently has taken her share of Federal Tax dollars towards her “husband’s” Pray the gay away clinic. She has absoulutely no experience and no qualifications to be president of the United States of America. All she has is her failing Tea Party radicals which are rapidly dwindling away to they great abyss.
I’ve seen that look at church. Women so infused with the Holy Spirit, they can’t close their eyes, or they will produce sonic boom flatulence, so they suffer with that wide eyed look over the horizon searching for a public restroom, so they can blink, and take the edge off.
She does the blank stepford wife well………………and she has more wrinkles than me…..there is a g*d!
And a pearl necklace we can be certain her husband didn’t “give” her.
GREAT ON JACKIE L!!!!!!!!!!ROFLMAO!!!!
If you ask me she had better be greatful they took some time to photoshop this pic up and make her look much better and less crazy like the lunatic she is.
She’s crazy. It’s obvious from her profile pic.
Sad, what an overdose of botox will do. Look at her forehead: it’s as smooth as a baby’s butt, but the rest of her face has the normal complement of wrinkles.
Sorry Michele, but your plastic surgeon can’t erase the crazy.
“and many people are saying they picked a slightly less than flattering picture of her.”
You mean there are pictures of her that don’t look crazy?!
What a whack job – she looks the part…
(“Queen of Rage”…isn’t that song by the Police…?…)
No….That is “King Of Pain”
Doesn’t she have that same look as Jeffrey Dahmer, or is it just because she was having one of her hudge MIGRAINEs, knowing all the comments her pic will get?
Or,maybe it’s time to call in the Catholic Bishop to grant an exorcism! I know,she’s not Catholic, but who cares. She wouldn’t inderstand a word in Latin anyways….except the Devil himself! AAAUUUUUGGGHHHHH!
I guarantee she approved the photo. But now that people are talking about it, she’ll deny it.
It makes her look as loony as she is. It’s a cover. I’ll be interested to read the article. Her teachers and the people she admires are pretty out there, from what I have read elsewhere. I think the public needs to hear her background and philosophy from some source other than Fox.
So, when do we get to see her eat the heads off rats?
I live in her district and have seen her in action since she ran for school board. At first she looks and sounds normal, even poised. Then you listen and…she sounds possessed. If you see this photo from a distance or glance at it quickly, she looks like an attractive woman. Examine carefully and she looks like a psychopath. The photo captures her perfectly.
I’m no fan of Bachmann but this is a good example of media bias. A professional camera can shoot 6 to 9 frames a second. The photographic editor can pick the one that supports their bias.
Generally, I would agree for a “civilian”, but as a future president everything is scrutinized, especially in this day and age. Body language, tone, everything is interpreted. If she is going to go on the hot seat, I blame her staff. Somebody should have told her she’s got crazy eye in photos and had her practice – its fairly standard, right up there with making sure the teeth aren’t yellow, the clothes aren’t out of wack. Also, this doesn’t look candid, meaning it was shot for the cover. She should have had it thrown out. And again, if her staff didn’t have access to the sheet, then what the heck? Regardless of her politics, this what she’s paying her people for and they shouldve done more more
@stone: You hit the nail on the head. If her staff cannot “handle” her and her image now, what about down the road?!?!? And what does that say about her management/leadership skills?
I agree 100%
And to think she had a plastic surgeon create that look at great expense.
Did you . know that one of the signs of a mentally ill person is the whites of their eyes show all around. Look at other photos of her, they all look like this. She is mentally ill and the camera is merely showing what is already there. That and the fact that botox paralyzes selected muscles in your face.
How do you know this particular picture wasn’t the sanest looking one of the bunch?
She has final say about the photo that is used!
The “batboy” photo is still better…
Ugh!! She looks like a cross between Sponge Bob Square Pants and bugs Bunny!!
The photo does her, and us, complete justice by depicting her true wickedness. Trust me, I know…she’s my (I have never ever voted for her) “representative”.
Pure wickedness and hatred. I live in Kansas and feel the same way about my Rep. but he is nothing compared to her.
Also from Ks. Our Gov was the only gov who was dumb enough to accept the invitation to rick perry’s prayerfest. They one where one of the sponsers said Oprah was the one who proceeded the Harlot, or was the harlot. Ant the guy who said Korea’s economy is bad because their leader had sex with “the sun goddess. He is a pimple on the face of Kansas.
I’m sorry to hear that…..to have a loon as your Rep…
Looks like she just walked in on her husband, and go the surprise of her life!!!
….and we have a winner. LOL
I assume she approved the use of the photo so if she thinks it makes her look crazy then you are witnessing one of the starkest examples of projection in the annals of psychological history and another clear indication of her mental illness.
I am sorry, Michelle, it’s not the photo that makes you look crazy, it’s the crazy things you say. How about a little Johari Window analysis on the scores of gaffes you have made?
If she sounds crazy and acts crazy… chances are she’s crazy.
She could be a duck.
maybe she’s a witch!
I think they got the point across clearly.
This photo represents Michelle Bachman perfectly; it’s a portrait of a crazy/deranged person
If the government is evil… and she’s in government… doesn’t that make her evil too?
I think the picture flatters her. She’s MUCH crazier than she looks here!
Yep…a very good likeness…of a crazy person…it’s all in the eyes…
She makes OZZY look perfectly normal. And compared to her, he is.
HOLY S*** SHE LOOKS F***IN CRAZY!!!
She looks it because she IS!!! hahahahaa
She doesn’t just look crazy, she is Crazy! This is why I don’t subscribe to News Week or buy it anymore!
Her eyes are identical to those of the crazy gunman who shot Gabby!
A person’s eyes are the windows to their soul. She has none…
It just breaks my heart to watch a woman’s life destroyed by mental illness, but in the case of Michelle Bachmann it’s kinda’ FUNNY.
I think the cover captures the true essence of mb’s spirit or lack of…She is a nutcase, psycho.
Love the headlines. Is it possible for her to look any crazier?
Next thing you know they’ll be complaining because they accurately quoted what she said, instead of what she really meant.
The photo is perfect ! The photographer captured Bachmann typically scary expression. Even better, the photo editor ran the photo just as it came off the camera’s memory card. He did not engage in the typical photoshop retouching to make her look glamorous, an apt metaphor for the way broadcast news glosses over her craziness.
This is the exact opposite of the (in)famous OJ SImpson cover, when P’shop was used to make him look even more guilty.
Creepy as Usual…I just realized that she has that same insane look as the other psycho-Christian women that I have had the greatest displeasure to meet. They all have that same glazed over, crazed look in their eyes coupled with those insipid smiles.
Stepford wife.She looks like this ALL the time, no Photoshop is needed.
She dresses well and has nice hair and teeth for a snake.
Marcus, her “husband”, picks out her wardrobe. “He has a much better fashion sense than I do,” says wife Michelle.
No doubt he has doubles of his faves of her dresses tucked away for himself, in a larger size…in his frickin’ homophobic CLOSET.
Looks like a deer in the headlights. They apparently photoshopped the horns out.
That what drinking the cool-aid does! She just gets home delivery!
The only thing funnier than that picture are these comments!
Really? We’ve sunk to talking about how this woman looks?! There are a million things about her policies, lack of education (or ability to hire a qualified speech writer), etc that should be the focus. Let’s try and stay the course here, what the woman looks like should have no basis on how well she can do any job.
Come on she obviously signed off on this photo you gotta admit if you walked into a parking lot and you saw this woman you would run for your life. As for her politics don’t make me laugh she thinks carbon dioxide can’t be bad because it occurs naturally kinda like arsenic is.
THINKERS OF THE WORLD…UNITE!
If you bark she be the first to bite…
Wonderful photo, Newsweek! She looks just as insane as she truly is.
Goddamn liberal media hates Crazy Eyes Bachmann.
Two things you shouldn’t like about Michele Bachmann — her face.
You can’t polish that much crazy-turd to make it shine.
that’s the same look you see in the eyes of any religious fanatic.
Newsweek shouldn’t have to respond to the suggestion they used a less than flattering picture!!! This is how she looks. She does appear to be nuts!
She’s scarier than Freddie Kruger, one thing is for sure this Liberal Democrat, Civil Rights Activist, Gay Rights Activist would NEVER VOTE FOR HER. Palin and Michele on the same ticket, even scarier.
She’s got Charlie Manson eyes (sung to the tune of “She’s got Bette Davis eyes”)
She’s got Charlie Manson eyes (sung to the tune of “She’s got Bette Davis eyes)
Well shes obviously 100% pro plastic surgery and 200% nuts. On a similar note, I think she can use a few more face lifts and a few less nose jobs.
If by some slimmer than slim chance, she could be the president of the U.S.ofA., with in 7 hours I’d be at the Canadian border begging for asylum. That’s how long it takes me to drive there from where I live
If by some slimmer than slim chance she gets to be president of the U. S. of A., I’d be begging the Canadians for asylum within 7 hrs. That’s how long it takes me to drive to the border from where I live!
No need to single out this one picture. She has the same demented look every time I see her.
I have not seen eyes that scary since my Dad took me to see THE EXORCIST back in 1973.
She will need an old fashioned Roman Catholic Exorcism!
Does she ever NOT look like that? If so, I must have missed it.
I dont see a problem with the photo at all.
I mean it seems to me that it conveys how EFFING crazy this woman is perfectly…
The woman IS out of her mind and how else to show it.I wish they had included a shot of her Husband so everyone can get a look
at another total crazy. Good work Newsweek.
No I dont see a thing wrong with it…
It conveys pretty well how absolutely effing crazy she is…
Mesmerized by her own bullshit.
Looks like she’s been up all night on too much caffiene, but it’s probably just a side-effect of having a head full of glitter…..
Brilliant, brilliant cover! The top of MB’s head is framed by letters that spell out “eeek” (a squeal of fear), and around her head and upper body (from left to right) a combination of negative warnings and associations appear: the words “protect from politics,” Economy on the Brink,” “BEHIND BARS,” and “TYRANNY AND PAIN.” Then there’s the headline for the cover story itself, which is placed across her chest to further distance her from the viewer–and that’s aside from the headline content itself, which is, shall we say, less than complimentary (beginning with THE QUEEN OF RAGE” and ending with “THE EVILS OF GOVERNMENT”), Whether or not an individual actually opens the magazine and reads the story, a very potent set of subliminal anti-MB messages has already been effectively communicated.
Wow, what an excellent analysis!
Thanks…sorry there are so many typos in it.
Hey if you get to wear pearls during normal working hours quit ya bitchin’!
It clearly captures the ‘crazy’ in her eyes!
Go to any super fundamentalist, evangelical mega-church and every person you see has those eyes…with absolutely NOTHING behind them. Unification Church tactics have been employed. These are some deranged and dangerous folks. Their “Dear Leaders” are diabolical.
OK… was it just me or did the TWILIGHT ZONE theme start playing when you looked at that pic???
She should have gotten some “Playboy” airbrush artists to paint out the crazy.
They haven’t made a computer program or paint set strong enough to do that.
Yeah, that seems about right.
gotta love those new HD Cameras, they catch every line so well…
They catch the insanity so well…
looks about right to me hahaha
I saw a pic of her and the infamous “Bat Boy” from the grocery store rags and thought there was more than a resemblance……now I am certain
I would imagine they found it difficult to find one picture of her where she doesn’t look bat shit crazy – sometimes you just can’t hide crazy.
I think the photo captures her essence perfectly…batshit crazy!
That’s the way your supposed to look when your stark raving mad.
