Bachmann Declines Comment on Newsweek Cover

The Fix notes that the controversy over a photo of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) that appears on the cover of Newsweek magazine this week "has drawn comment from people all over the political world. Except for one: Bachmann herself."

"On the campaign trail in Iowa, she said that she hadn't seen the photo; her campaign team told NBC News that the photo was from a lighting session and was not their preferred picture but have issued no formal statement about the image. And, none of her top aides returned a Fix email seeking comment on it."

"That (relative) silence affirms a simple but important truth of this campaign: Michele Bachmann is no Sarah Palin."

Meanwhile, the Daily Beast has the other Bachmann photos that were under consideration.
