Bag’s Take-Away:
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.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Palin’s Scottsdale compound. Like bin Laden’s — except without the swimming pool. 
(What’s it cost to maintain a lawn in the desert, anyway?)
(photo: PacificCoastNews.com caption: Former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, has reportedly just splashed out on a home just north of Scottsdale which had been listed for sale for $1.695 million. Sarah Palin has followed in her daughter Bristol PalinÕs footsteps by buying a home in the state of Arizona. The nearly 8,000 square foot mansion was paid for in cash thought a Delaware based entity linked to Palin. The home has 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a 6-car garage, pool, spa, wine cellar, home theater, outdoor kitchen, elevator, motor court, all situated behind gates on a sprawling 4 acre lot. Former Dancing With The Stars contestant, Bristol Palin, bought a $172,000 home in nearby Maricopa, Arizona, in December of 2010.)

Bag’s Take-Away:
Funny. Palin rips White House for inviting rapper, Common, to poetry event. Then, media releases ‘09 file photo of Obama and Common … including women in foreground reminiscent of you-know-who. 
(photo: AP caption:  In this Dec. 3, 2009 file photo, President Barack Obama greets rapper Common at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington. Michelle Obama’s “evening of poetry” at the White House set off Republican critics before the artists had uttered a word. But it was the inclusion of Common that set off Republicans. Common, who is considered fairly tame as rappers go, is known for rhymes that tend to be socially and politically conscious.)
