Well, as it turns out, absolutely nothing. As a matter of fact, the actual article does not even mention Bachmann in its headline or story.

I’m not saying Time is biased against Bachmann, but these days many people (like me) monitor news feeds on RSS. Sounds a little like “priming the pump” for bloggers and “suggesting” an angle for people like the Daily Kos to use. But surely they would not do anything like that would they?
