Bag’s Take-Away:
 I’m having trouble imagining Kerry getting tough with anybody, so this photo caught my eye even though it’s most likely Kerry is describing his battle for a primo spot in the State Department parking garage.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Apparently, Obama’s Dreams of My Father contains a passage about Obama being fed dog meat as a small child. McCain, in honor of Mitt Romney’s visit to Arizona, joked that his son’s dog, Apollo, is not on the menu.  Not sure if the AP photographer was clued in on the Obama tie-in or just took the delectable opportunity to juxtapose Mac with Apollo and tongue, but the hostility is vintage McCain (and, a taste of the chow from that off-the-rails and over-caffeinated “Straight Talk Express”).

Remember that embarrassing M-A-V-E-R-I-C-K photo from the McCain campaign in 2008? Ron Paul’s supporters benefit here from brevity: less of them to look silly and more enthusiasm to pull it off.

Bag’s Take-Away:
As members of the GOP call for military action against Syria and Iran, the costs of Afghanistan and Iraq are strangely absent from their rhetoric. I can’t imagine why anyone thinks the American public is anything but war weary. In case we need a reminder, look at this young woman and her now fatherless child.
