Put up McCain, Palin, and Bachman's if you expect us to actually compare them. Better yet put up a non-biased link from a google image search of each of their magazine covers. You posted 15 images and only 4 were from magazine covers, the rest were just photoshopped.

The cheap attemp at being unflattering is quite funny, imo.

i suspect we'll see more of it when the campaigning gets into high gear.

You really know how to make your own argument suffer.

The American public is smart enough to see the print, broadcast and internet media adorn O with these images.

And the attempts to demonize his opposition in every respect.

The Fourth Estate should be ashamed. They used hold themselves in the best interest of the people.

Not so now. They have prostituted themselves to politics.

Did you expect something different from left-leaning MSM publications?

A none issue. It'll help her, mainly because it draws this phoney outrage and the chivalrous will rally to her. Still won't help in a general when she says that gay people are Satan, and destroying the nations credit is a good idea.

Michele Bachman does more than enough to demonize herself.

I think the OP's point is clear, except for the willfully obtuse. The mainstream media has been in the tank for Obama from the start and they have been attempting to shape public opinion (which is malleable) in his favor. And that's why there is a double standard in how they cover him and how they cover Republicans and conservatives. That's all.
