Michele Bachmann poses with dead meat in Iowa

In her quest for votes in Iowa, Michele Bachmann visited a Des Moines meat-packing plant today, where she was photographed touring a locker of hanging beef carcasses.

This particular photo op will no doubt go down as one of the more unusual campaign events of the 2012 primary. But The Ticket couldn't help noticing Bachmann's shoes: a pair of open-toed high heels. That's probably not the best choice of footwear when touring a chilly locker full of raw meat--but then again, the decision to allow the candidate to be photographed surrounded by dead meat probably wasn't a wise choice, either.
