Bag’s Take-Away:

Because the GOP and the party platform have such an intimate connection with women and their inner lives.

Bag’s Take-Away:

American pies and Veep candidate Paul Romney Jr. aside, I’m a sucker for any photo that shows Mitt with his wallet out fondling the benjamins. (In this case, I also wasted a good five minutes of Google Image time having fantasized that that was a Social Security card in his wallet when it was actually American Express.)

Mitt Romney purchases pies at Homemades by Suzanne during a campaign stop August 11, 2012 in Ashland, Virginia. Mitt Romney kicked off a four day bus tour with an announcement of his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).)

What’s wrong with this picture?  At the White House, it’s Ryan, the Divine …’cept his homies aren’t seeing it.

Bag’s Take-Away:

TMI? On today’s Paul Ryan watch, basset hound eyes meet network graphic overload. Not since Beck’s blackboard have we seen a guy get this much political mileage out of information graphics. Still, Ryan — with the character actor vibe and the numbers that don’t add up — is probably a week away from becoming a caricature of himself. 


(photo: Reuters caption: House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) appears on “Meet the Press” in Washington, April 10, 2011. With one budget fight behind him, President Barack Obama will offer a long-term plan for deficit reduction this week in preparation for bigger U.S. spending battles ahead, the White House said today.)
