The scary Newsweek cover photo of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann got the Daily Show treatment from Jon Stewart last night.
He’s gone on about Bachmann and her husband before but this time laughingly takes the magazine to task for using that particular, “glazed and confused” photo.
“It’s clearly not accidental,” he said. “You can say a lot of things about Michele Bachmann — a lot of things — but here’s what you can’t say about Michele Bachmann — that she’s not photogenic…my point is, you’ve got to go pretty far out of the way to find a crappy photo of Michele Bachmann — and you did.”
The candidate doesn’t get by without a dig:
“Be honest, Newsweek, you used that photo in a petty attempt to make Michele Bachmann look crazy — and that’s what her words are for. If you want a photo that makes her seem off, make it out of her words.”
