What does this bumper sticker mean now? Killing Osama didn’t kill the meme, apparently.

Bag’s Take-Away:

A Bag reader asks if we picked up on the color schemes in the one-shots of Mitt and Newt last night. Maybe just a coincidence with the ties and all, but it sure looks like Mitt (also positioned left-center against the blue field) was the more centrist with red meat Newt out there working the base.

Photogs wrestling with Perry, #2.

And then, from Getty’s Scott Olson, there’s always Perry (a retort to The Big Hat looking reflective) as Walking Taco — as in, ‘I can walk-o, and talk-o, at the same time’).


(photo: Scott Olson/Getty Images caption: Republican presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry greats guests at the Iowa State Fair August 15, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa. The visit is part of Perry’s first campaign trip to Iowa since declaring he would seek the Republican nomination for president on August 13.)

Getty’s Chip Somodevilla wrestles with Perry, #1:
I’m interested in this as racial commentary … since I couldn’t find another black face in the 38 other pics in the Rick Perry/Iowa State Fair photo gallery.  

Not working? No room on the bus?

Bag’s Take-Away:

Not the kind of photo you want to see if you’re Perry, like he’s just another dude in the crowd as Bachmann soaks it up. If the pic was cheap on the NYT’s part (yeah, watch the MSM blogs get ‘12 dirty), Perry’s step into Waterloo (and Bachmann home town), was (though you’d never know it from the picture) a big hat move + a shot-across-the-bow.
