I see NOW is defending Michele Bachmann:

One of presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's major political opponents is defending her against what it says is blatant sexism on the part of Newsweek magazine.

Monday, the National Organization for Women (NOW) spoke out against Newsweek's most recent cover, which features an extreme close-up of Michele Bachmann and the title "The Queen of Rage."

"It's sexist," NOW president Terry O'Neill told TheDC. "Casting her in that expression and then adding 'The Queen of Rage' I think [it is]. Gloria Steinem has a very simple test: If this were done to a man or would it ever be done to a man -- has it ever been done to a man? Surely this has never been done to a man."

Right-wingers will continue to whinge about being accused of a level of anger that's greater than lefty anger. They won't acknowledge that this is happening because they actually have a level of anger that's greater (by far) than lefty anger.

Oh, and since the "R" word is now deemed offensive, I guess the people who recorded this song owe an apology to all their fellow teabaggers:
