Shallow 'Rolling Stone' Hit Piece is Just What Michele Bachmann Needed

Shallow 'Rolling Stone' Hit Piece is Just What Michele Bachmann Needed | The Awl:

The backlash against the lashing out against presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has already begun. Following the Palin blueprint, Bachmann plans on fully leveraging the negative publicity with her base: they see leftist attacks as a point of pride and an indication of strength.

This outpouring of disgust is coming at the expense of the excellent local bloggers in Minnesota who have long tracked and fact-checked Bachmann. Their work will be the uncredited foundation of probably every Bachmann hit piece you'll read between now and 2012. It's begun with the self-destructive chewing-out that Matt Taibbi gave Bachmann in Rolling Stone.
Testing out a new survey service with this post. It's an alpha I found via Empire Avenue called Survcast. Try it out, if you're so inclined:
