Bag’s Take-Away:

Call it a GOP 2012 litmus test. On first pass, the idea of these portraits on display at the CPAC conference is DC is to lend as much gravitas as possible. Study the first three more closely, however, and the mouths say “I’m not getting very far here.” As for Paul, he looks too much like W.C. Fields.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Does it matter that only one of the candidates looks faithfully represented (Newt) or that it’s Huntsman’s turn to look like Ted Kennedy?

Bag’s Take-Away:

"Before Mr. Gingrich would agree to an event, former aides said, they had to meet with the couple and Mrs. Gingrich’s personal staff. Mrs. Gingrich said yes to certain cases — appearing on the Fox News Channel’s national telecast, for example — but if an overnight trip out of state was required, she frequently vetoed it, the former aides said. Mr. Gingrich did not overrule her."  — from: As Ex-Aides Speak Out, Gingrich Continues Bid. (NYT)

Looking at the latest Newt - Callista pics (or, should I say Callista - Newt), we see similar pattern, his wife on his tail, her eyes on him like a hawk.
