Remember Palin’s eyeroll? I do. Its ubiquity on youtube and throughout the liberal press in America and beyond, summed up the ridiculousness of people’s opposition to the former Governor of Alaska, in their bid to make sure she did not get near the White House.
And now the liberal ‘left’ have got their eyes on a new target: Michele Bachmann. Bachmanneyezed on tumblr puts her ‘crazy eyes’ on various celebrities and muppets, to show just how laughable she is.
But if that is the extent of the ‘commentary’ on Michelle Bachmann, and if even ‘serious’ journalists and bloggers are using the age old ‘mad woman’ trope to discredit a female republican politician, then why should I even bother to read their thought out critiques and observations of how ‘contradictory’ her statements are? If you rely on their creativity for scoring your political points, you have to accept that the tumblr generation are the ones having the last laugh. They know politics is all about image and your in -depth rational analysis is lost on the post-modern world.
