Another Example of the "New Civility" from the Left

In another example of "the new civility" from the left, Rolling Stone has a vitriolic profile of Michelle Bachmann in it's July 7 issue.  The woman who is now leading the pack in the latest Zogby poll of Republican contenders is described by Rolling Stone as

Michele Bachmann, when she turns her head toward the cameras and brandishes her pearls and her ageless, unblemished neckline and her perfect suburban orthodontics in an attempt to reassure the unbeliever of her non-threateningness, is one of the scariest sights in the entire American cultural tableau. She's trying to look like June Cleaver, but she actually looks like the T2 skeleton posing for a passport photo.
Nice, hunh?  There's more:

And Bachmann is exactly the right kind of completely batshit crazy. Not medically crazy, not talking-to-herself-on-the-subway crazy, but grandiose crazy, late-stage Kim Jong-Il crazy — crazy in the sense that she's living completely inside her own mind, frenetically pacing the hallways of a vast sand castle she's built in there, unable to meaningfully communicate with the human beings on the other side of the moat, who are all presumed to be enemies.

You can read the rest if you wish.  As for me, I don't think I'll be taking any more lessons from the left on civility in political discourse.

Written as only a drug induced, paranoid schizophrenic can write. That somne fiendish imagination they've got going on there ...

"No point in mentioning these bats, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon ..." Hunter S. Thompson Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

They are trying to recapture lightning in a teacup again harking back to the Nixon chronicles but they are not very good writers and their imagination is innundated with motheaten dustbunnys. Keep trying though RS. You just keep trying.

This is Matt Taibbi's style. He writes the same way about everyone, and is not a reprentative of "the Left." So wipe up your tears and go on with your day.

The Left only attacks that which they fear. They are embracing with drool-worthy adjectives Huntsman (this is a warning sign, patriots). The vitriol against Bachmann is reminiscent of what leftists said about Reagan. And personally, I like pearls.

Sometimes, running as the leader of the pack means you get knocked down first. But hey, we all know this election cycle is going to be something to watch.
