Michele Bachmann visited Jimmy Fallon last night and completely made me understand how other people love her. If I didn’t think her political beliefs were absolutely reprehensible, I’d like her! That Rick Perry “three” joke was a good one, you have to admit. [Gotcha Media]

Rep. Michele Bachmann is the only female candidate gunning for the Republican nomination. So you know I’ve got something to say about her taking on what the New York Observer cheekily referred to as “the traditional woman’s role” at a GOP Thanksgiving Family Forum on Saturday night and pouring glasses of water for all her male opponents. While Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and the other male candidates sat at their roundtable, she walked from glass to glass, filling them with water.

Now, let’s put on our Women’s Studies Major Hat and ask ourselves, BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?! Keep reading »

  • Remember that piece in Psychology Today last year about a “study” that “proved” black women are unattractive? The London School of Economics has decided to place its author, Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, on teaching probation for one year for making the school look bad. [Racialicious]

Today’s Lady News: “The Daily Show” Schools Michele Bachmann On The HPV Vaccine

  • Kristen Schaal was on “The Daily Show” last night as Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent addressing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s latest WTF claim that she met a woman whose child became mentally retarded from the HPV vaccine. Which, as you may have heard, the medical community says is total BS. Wear headphones and there’s imagery that’s NSFW at the end, so make sure your boss isn’t a-lurkin’! [The Daily Show]
  • Virginia may lose all 22 clinics that provide abortion. What does that mean? People who can afford to will travel up to places like New York where abortion is much more accessible. And everyone who can’t afford it? If you have an unintended pregnancy, then it sucks to be you. [New York Times]
  • Journalist Lea Goldman at Marie Claire examines the “pinkification” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), when tons of products become pink and we’re told a portion goes to breast cancer research. But how much money do researchers actually receive — and how much of this is just opportunistic hucksterism? [Marie Claire]

WTF: Michele Bachmann Invents The “Morning-After Abortion Pill”

I purposefully did not watch CNN’s Tea Party/Republican debate on Tuesday night because I knew I’d spend the whole time screaming at the TV. It was the right choice. (Like moi, you can read the transcript here.) Texas Governor Rick Perry wasted no time saying he made a “mistake” by requiring adolescent girls in Texas to be vaccinated against strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. And then Rep. Michele Bachmann chimed in to … well, lie on national television by smearing Plan B, which is the morning-after pill, as the “morning-after abortion pill.” You know, implying that it is the abortion pill, i.e. kills babies:

Forget About Her Politics, Let’s Talk About Michele Bachmann’s Hair

Michele Bachmann‘s Tea Party politics are not to everyone’s taste. Her hair? That’s another story. Women getting their hair did are supposedly asking for her chic, political ‘do, which is a rich brown with caramel highlights. “A lot of clients have asked for Sarah Palin hair in the past four years, and now, it’s Bachmann,” a stylist at a hair salon in Los Angeles told The New York Daily News. Added a stylist at a salon in New York City, Bachmann’s hair is “safe, but not soccer mom. It’s sexy.” Keep reading »

Michele Bachmann Says Hurricane Irene Was A Message From God To Politicians

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

–Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann explaining the recent earthquake and hurricane on the East Coast. So there you have it; God was just sending a strongly worded text message to politicians, is all. [NYMag] Keep reading »

Andy Richter Prescribes “Two Solid Weeks Of Orgasms” For Michele Bachmann

Andy Richter is one of those comics who is so “whatever,” that when he occasionally surfaces, I’m like, “Oh, yeah, he still exists.” Case in point: last night Richter dispatched this charming tweet to Twitter, “There’s nothing wrong with Michele Bachmann two solid weeks of orgasms won’t cure.” Ah, yes, the old self-congratulatory ‘this woman sucks because she hasn’t been f**ked properly’ narrative. Bow down to the phallus! The penis cures aaaaaall! Keep reading »

The Corndog Bitten ‘Round The World: A Photo Of Michele Bachmann Mid-Chomp

Over the week weekend, the UK’s Telegraph‘s blog published a post about Rep. Michele Bachmann and illustrated it with a picture of her chomping down on a corndog at the Iowa State Fair. Bachmann’s eyes are mid-blink, her lipsticked mouth is wide open, and well, she’s shoving a corndog into her face.

Do we really have to talk about this? We do? Okay. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: GOP Debate Asks Michele Bachmann About “Submission” To Husband

  • The GOP held a debate last night for wannabe presidential nominees and Rep. Michele Bachmann was asked about statements she has made in the past that a husband should be the head of the household and a wife should be “submissve” to him. As the moderator asked, “As president, would you submissive to your husband?” the audience booed like mad. In response, Bachmann praised her husband and said to them, “submission” means “respect.” I’m sorry, but I don’t buy that pile of BS from her. They very well may respect each other deeply, but this looks to me like she’s flip-flopping on her belief of male headship of the household in front of the cameras. What do you think? [Think Progress]
  • Sarah Palin says something sensible about the notion that if she and Michele Bachmann both ran for president there would a catfight. “It’s kind of even a sexist notion to consider that two women would be kind of duking it out,” Palin said. “If I’m gonna duke it out I’m gonna duke it out with the guys.” [Politico]
