Salon's Dave Weigel captured this video of a voter in Iowa Monday telling Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann that a less-than-flattering photo of her had graced the cover of Newsweek magazine for a profile titled "The Queen of Rage."

"Have you seen it yet?" the voter asked.

"I have not," Bachmann replied.

"It's a big close-up of you, a wild-eyed photo with the headline, 'Queen of Rage,'" the voter explained.

"Ah-hah. Well, we'll have to take a look at that, won't we?" Bachmann said.

The candidate added that her campaign's message was "hope," not rage.
