Yes, Feminism, Even for the Biblically Submissive Wife

This is just a shame. I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I appreciate Michele Bachmann politically, but I don't need to agree with someone to recognize when she is being degraded. Wafflesatnoon.com decided to list the top twenty tweets about Rep. Bachmann's white jacket. Where are all the tweets about what Santorum, Paul, Cain, Romney, Perry, and Gingrich were wearing? Oh, there aren't any, you say? That we comment on the substance of a political debate among men but only the physical appearance of the lone woman in the race is inexcusable. Women are more than objects to be gawked at. Bash Bachmann all day for her backward ideas about the role of government, but unless you are ready to reduce all of the candidates--women and men--to manikins, let's keep it on the merits.
