Throughout Rep. Michele Bachmann's, R-Minn., two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, she has been target of liberal scorn – from the great mind of MSNBC's Ed Schultz to the bomb-throwing commentator parading as a pseudo-investigative journalist known as Matt Taibbi. But this latest round of Michele Bachmann derangement syndrome actually required time and effort – a comic book dedicated to denigrating the representative from Minnesota's 6th Congressional district.
The comic book series is called “False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story” and is up to its third issue. The first issue laid a foundation for future misogynistic exploits by the creators and the second issue took direct quotes from Bachmann to prove anecdotally she's a “right-wing lunatic.” And in the latest installment, the creators wear their feelings on their sleeves about Bachmann's stand for traditional marriage instead of supporting a pro-homosexual agenda.
Eric Kleefeld of the left-wing news site Talking Points Memo reviewed the third issue and concluded this “art” made a “serious point” about Bachmann – not that she actually believes what she says, but instead she is just operating to advance her own political career.
“As for the treatment of the subject matter, the creators set out to make a serious point: That Bachmann has advanced her career on a platform of singling out a group within society for hatred and ostracism, and that this is a highly dangerous thing to do,” Kleefeld wrote.
For those that think this type of political art is something that would fit into their collection – a misogynistic angry screed about a relative newcomer to the U.S. House of Representatives, the each of the issues are available for $4.95 through PayPal on the creators' Web site.
