There was a time when women in politics were not portrayed as crazy

Girls Gone Mad: the Wild-Eyed Lunacy of Bachmann, Palin, Pelosi, Clinton . . . Etc. — BagNews: "Attacking female politicians by making them look crazy is bad politics and bad strategy. It levies an argument every bit as specious as the positions the images are designed to critique, and it does so in a way that perpetuates outdated stereotypes about political women." You have to be old enough to remember the names of Margaret Chase Smith and Maurine Neuberger. Some women like Bachmann and Palin court the crazy label and in my view are as fair game as Richard Nixon and LBJ were, no more no less.
