Bag’s post by Prof. Karrin Anderson is kicking up a lot of dust. Anderson starts off: “I’m no Bachmann apologist, but I am concerned about a troubling trend in which political women are critiqued as crackpots and lambasted as lunatics.” Michelle Malkin responded to the post with a tweet saying: “I’d rather have ‘crazy eyes’ than willfully blind ones.”
I’m not sure why she was so defensive, though, when the “Girls Gone Mad” post is actually sympathetic to her.
