Does this mean Michele Bachmann's presidential hopes are 'dead meat?'

In 1988, Massachusetts governor and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis was portrayed as soft on defense.

What better way to fight a charge like that than to jump in an army tank, take a ride and get your picture taken?

It didn't work.

Political insiders use the 1988 Dukakis tank incident as an example of a campaign photo-op that's to be avoided at all costs: "Never let the candidate be photographed in a ridiculous-looking situation."

Tuesday, for some unexplained reason, Michele Bachmann allowed herself to be photographed standing alone in an Iowa meat packing plant with sides of beef.

Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., looks at hanging beef carcasses during a plant tour at Amend Packing Co. in Des Moines, Iowa, Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011.

Oh well, I guess she can write off the Peta vote.
