Bag’s Take-Away:
Lots of  journalistic infighting going on over  The Sunday New York Times story on Ann Romney’s dressage hobby. No one used this photo from the Donald Trump hosted birthday party for Ann Romney in April, but why not? Maybe the hobby, like the  friend who had the cake made, have become a bit expensive for Mrs. Romney?

(credit:ABC News caption:  Donald Trump is known for throwing lavish parties, but at the birthday bash he threw for Ann Romney today, it was the birthday cake that stole the show. The cake, created by celebrity chef Buddy Valastro, of the TV show “Cake Boss,” is topped with a sugar-coated Romney riding atop a horse standing in a field of green frosting. Romney is an avid horseback rider and often goes riding to soothe the symptoms of her multiple sclerosis.)
