They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. I'll let you draw your own conclusion as you gaze deeply into the 99-cent Bachmann-Eyezed app for iPhone and iPad.

Bachmann-Eyezed lets you add the Republican presidential candidate's well-known steely stare to any photo. A "Craziness" slider lets you ramp up the intensity from regular eyes to radiating red eyeballs that jump aggressively off the screen.

Choose from pictures in your photo gallery or take fresh snapshots to adulterate. A yellow guide outline helps you get everything in the right place. Pinch and swipe to change size or move the eyes around.

I turned my normally cuddly kitty cat into a unrecognizable creature from beyond the polls in a mere matter of seconds.

All of this madness was inspired by the kerfuffle over Newsweek's Bachmann cover that highlighted her wide-eyed look with the accompanying headline, "The Queen of Rage." Bachmann supporters protested that the photo was deliberately designed to make her look unappealing.

Those radiant peepers caught on with a meme that photoshopped her gaze onto a variety of celebrities. Thanks to the new app, you don't have to be a celebrity to get your Bachmann eyes on.

May I recommend a soundtrack of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" and "Hungry Eyes" from "Dirty Dancing" to go along with your Bachmann-Eyezed experience? Just remember, she's watching you.
