Maryland will hold one of three primaries in the nation Tuesday. After acknowledging it is impossible for him to win the GOP presidential nomination outright, Gingrich has vowed to stay in the presidential race even after firing a third of his campaign staff last week, taking the fight to the party convention.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

Both Santorum and his wife as well as his campaign seem a bit past tired. If today’s primaries give him no relief, I imagine he’ll be tired all the way up to the convention.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Juxtaposition of the Day

In the U.S. women are spoken down to while, currently, in Myanmar, of all places, they reach across to be heard.

Both photos are interesting for the position of women in the photo….I like the first one especially for that and for the fact the flowered bra (the most feminine aspect outside the women themselves) is at eye level for the men speaking down to them.

The second photo is quite lovely for an expression of power and femininity as Aung San Suu expresses her position on a more equivalent level.

Bag’s Take-Away:

“Putting Family First” apparently always means “Putting Family Through it First.” Interesting shot of Santorum with his eldest daughters and wife after losing the GOP Illinois Primary last night. Recalls the famous photo below when Santorum lost his 2006 senatorial re-election campaign in Pennsylvania.

Here’s the thing…..the facial expressions….especially that of his wife. Were they surprised by this outcome?
