Wonderful shot by NYT’s Stephen Crowley of Santorum train wreck addressing black church. 
1. God, where’s my cellphone at a time like this.
2. Hopefully, you and your friends will think twice next time about all the food stamp baiting.
3. And, it’s not even hot in here!

Bag’s Take-Away:

A Face of the Day of sorts.  I’ve seen pictures of imams, some satirical drawings of Mohammed, but I’ve never seen this sort of idolatry (it’s Mohammed’s son-in-law). Judging from the wear on the banner, this has been used many times.  Lighten him up and de-arch the eyebrows and you have a figure on the order of the Catholic jesus. It’s almost as if all the energy that would have gone into depicting Allah (if they could), seems to have gone into his son-in-law.

And then, talk about the use of protest posters (and news photos) as an opportunity for democratic narrative and rebuttal. In response to the ruling class chatter that OWS lacks coherence, how brilliant is this?

With nuke anxiety and “end of days” mania in “cultural atmosphere,” explosive pic from Chile hits live nerve either way.
(photo: CLAUDIO SANTANA/AFP/Getty Images caption: A cloud of ash billowing from Puyehue volcano near Osorno in southern Chile, 870 km south of Santiago, on June 5, 2011. Puyehue volcano erupted for the first time in half a century on June 4, 2011, prompting evacuations for 3,500 people as it sent a cloud of ash that reached Argentina. The National Service of Geology and Mining said the explosion that sparked the eruption also produced a column of gas 10 kilometers (six miles) high, hours after warning of strong seismic activity in the area.)
