Bag’s Take-Away:
It’s interesting to me how the poor were effectively absent during the campaign but they are somehow showing up today in so many voting slideshows, this man at the Los Angeles Mission. Example of representative government — or media wall paper?

Bag’s Take-Away:
 Incongruous with his surroundings, no candidate to camp with, out of step and overdressed, a little pissed and already passé? Hightailing out of Des Moines, does he make himself relevant come November or just take his fife and his bedroll and slink on home.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Did you notice, in Romney’s New Hampshire sit down with the gay vet (and disavowal of gay marriage), that the man’s husband is actually on camera for, like, 2 seconds (approximately 2:30), and that Romney — like the politician he is — actually shakes hands with the guy (about 2:36)?

(AP confirmed the man opposite was the husband)

Bag’s Take-Away:

I know I’ve been banging Mitt for his photo-ops (like the hay bale announcement, and the baby juggling in the blighted strip-mall). Not this time, though. Given his vibe as a refugee from the Sears-Roebuck catalog, a virtual throwback to the 50’s, the pancake breakfast (as if this, down to the kid’s haircuts, was shot on a set from the era) is the perfect Romney backdrop. It’s such a shame about his anger problem. Otherwise, “the look” is the perfect recession package — as comfort food.

…More syrup, honey!

New Hampshire will hold the nation’s first presidential primary in early 2012.)

I had this bad dream last night that President Perry, in silly clothes, was meeting in TX with his new buddy, Musharraf. Guess he’s posing like a peacock cuz he thinks he’s found his Putin.

Okay, so I’m still trying to figure out the significance of framing Mitt with IN-N-OUT.

Republican Romney sent a strong message to his opponents for the party’s 2012 presidential nomination on Monday with a lucrative day of fund-raising in Las Vegas.)
