Hit piece on ID-friendly prez hopeful Bachmann analyzed

In “Translating Newsweek: Why the Left Fears Bachmann” (Townhall, August 10, 2011), news guy Terry Jeffrey tries to interpret the hostility shown in the recent cover photo:

Newsweek’s piece was actually a valuable seminar in why the elitist left fears successful female conservative politicians and why it perceives Bachmann to be a particularly formidable threat to its own ambitions to direct the future of our country.

And he offers a test:

Newsweek’s cover story describes Bachmann as follows: “Petite and prim, the 55-year-old mother of five delivers her stump speech with the earnestness of a preacher.”

Now, try to imagine Newsweek publishing a similarly constructed sentence about then-Sen. Hillary Clinton during her 2008 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Such a sentence would have needed to go something like this:

“Stout and cold, the 60-year-old mother of one delivers her stump speech with a sincerity that rivals her husband’s.”

Whadja think? They’d’ve written that? About her?
