Ok, so what if Michele Bachmann looks like she skipped out on taking her meds on that Newsweek Magazine cover. Yeah, yeah. I know you could’ve taken a hotter photo but you’re not running for office. (Are you?). I was VP of a nonprofit arts organization that ran on a shoestring budget and backroad policies. So, we couldn’t afford glamour shots, much less, plan how to get organized as a group to take one. Believe me folks, having a little stint in the VP seat gives me the insights on what position’s all about (putting my thumbs under my suspenders and letting the straps pop proudly against my shoulders). Yes siree, buddy.
See, at first, I didn’t understand the hoopla surrounding that photo. I thought they had photoshopped her to look like a man. If that was the case, and being the southern belle I am, I’d be so upset, I’d crawl under a rock and come out when night falls. Shit, I’d be on the serious downlow, and drinking the hell outta some Incognito.
But that wasn’t the case. The picture was really her, so here lies my question with those folk who’s got a problem with the magazine cover. Ain’t it a whole lot better seeing folk as they are rather than seeing them dolled up all the time? I know, I know. I’m contradicting myself back when I wrote In Sickness and in Vanity but hell, I ain’t running, walking or begging to be in no oval office either. If that heifer’s got some demonic or psychotic tendencies, I say snap the hell outta that button on the camera and show my ass what the real deal is on her. Shiiiiiit. I’ve told y’all I don’t want no woman in that oval office no how. I mean, you’ll never satisfy a feminist, I don’t care what you do.
If Bachmann hadn’t graced any magazine cover, they would’ve been bitching about that. Now, she’s all on the cover and being her own damn self and they’re talking about Newsweek should’ve made her look cuter. Shit, she’s the one who cheesed up for the camera. I didn’t identify a gun being nowhere near her head to make her look that way. Me being anti-feminist and all, I wouldn’t care if they put a nippled bra on her and showed some cleavage. Now, I would’ve identified with her a helluva lot quicker than her wearing that dark, man-like suit.
I’ve seen some mugshots taken of some male candidates but I never heard anybody crying and whining about it. Those feminists are something else and I want some duct tape wrapped tightly around their mouths to stop all that yackety yacking. The way I see it, if it takes something as superficial as vanity to get their thongs in a bunch, I have to question how feminist they really are.
