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.

“We could sit here all night long, come to a compromise over raising some taxes, cutting government spending, et cetera, et cetera,” said President Obama.  “Or we could just play a kickass game of mahjongg.”
