Bag’s Take-Away:

Quintessential Donald pic. The hair in the spotlight (plus, spotlight leaves trophy wife in the dark). Because see more hands than individuals, like a self-congratulations society. Black guy is muscle. Ah, the Republicans.

(photo: Reuters caption: Donald Trump (seated L) and his wife Melania (seated R) are applauded before a dinner hosted by the Sarasota Republican Party honoring him as Statesman of the Year in Sarasota, Florida August 26, 2012.)

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?
via ABC News
(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.)

The 1% is happy with their chances. Smug, even. What a scary photo. I’m afraid to go to sleep to night.

Just one more example why the corporate media — and civic consciousness — has gone straight to hell.  (…Now, if I could only find a national brand to sponsor these Tumblr posts!)

I’m not usually this nasty, but then, it’s the essence of the man to pull for it. So here’s my favorite shot from the White House Correspondent’s dinner last night, Trump, perhaps knowing he’s gonna take a whipping, unusually inanimate (the hair poof, like a hood ornament), with his anima-wife, Xena, the Warrior Princess.
