The Washington Post’s Disgusting Michele Bachmann Headline


This morning, Dana Milbank’s column on the Minnesota congresswoman in the Washington Post ran with the headline, “Bachmann Assumes the Position” (and bizarrely enough, the actual column was mildly praising of her). Since you can’t see the headline anymore (it has since been changed to “Bachman Steals the Show at the GOP Debate”), here is a partial screenshot from the WaPo’s mobile site:

I have inquiries into Milbank and others at the Post about the headline and why it was changed. Meanwhile, this is just the latest in a series of misogynistic attacks on conservative women that shows no sign of going away anytime soon.
