It's not fair to take pictures like this. Nobody looks pretty/handsome or dignified when eating a corn dog. The mental pictures and jokes are a gimme. On the other hand, why on Earth would this woman set herself up this way? She must KNOW how it's going to look, shoving a long cylindrical piece of meat down her throat--shouldn't she? She must KNOW this is one of those "gotcha" moments she whines about so often.
Aw, what the hell, right? It's Michelle Bachmann, and anything that makes her look like crap works for me.
I hate everything Bachmann stands for politically and socially. But I'm still not okay with women being shown sucking a replacement cock for a cheap laugh. There are lots of reasons to ridicule her and expose her hypocrisy—a photo of performing corndog fellatio isn't needed.
Thank you. Enough already.
If this was Facebook, I would be "liking" this comment.
Marcus also ate a corn dog http://www.politicususa.com/en/marcus-bachmann-foot-long-corn-dog
Uh-huh......nope....you set this up on a tee, Dr. Weiss but I won't take the bait, LOL
I could use a man's perspective on why Marcus's technique includes so much teeth. Ouch!
To be fair, we should show Rick Perry's, too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/iowapolitics/6045969391/in/set-72157627440452580/
