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!

More joker or trickster?
Evan Vucci’s clever photograph raises the question of how much more savvy Ron Paul is than he’s made out to be. While he’s either ignored or ridiculed by traditional media and much of the public, the photo suggests Paul not only rolls with it but puts it to use.

Stunning images and raised hopes from Obama’s June ‘09 Cairo U. speech. Stephen Crowley of the NYT had perhaps the best shot. Still, the photo is probably more ironic than prophetic, given the timing (eight days before the Iranian’s “green revolution” election), and the weighting on Christian clerics.
For more backstory, see today’s companion post at BagNewsNotes, Obama: Flashback to Cairo, with a slideshow of White House photos from the Cairo speech.
(photo: Stephen Crowley/The New York Times. caption: The speech evoked a new and nuanced tone, and some of Mr. Obama’s language drew appreciative applause from his audience of 3,000 invited guests in the Major Reception Hall at Cairo University.
