Bag’s Take-Away:

I suppose there is another table, unseen to us, that says ‘uomini’, but I find it odd that Italians separate the vote — and least, in their list keeping — between men and women. Am I translating that wrong or do we have a great photo of the plasticized Berlusconi walking away from ‘women’ (donne) to cast his vote?

Bag’s Take-Away:
Dinesh Souza has an anti-Obama film coming out in June.  Here’s the trailer.
One of the most memorable shots? A black family fighting over a Monopoly board. On some levels, somewhat perplexing; on all other levels: racist. Because you know his re-election means blacks are going to rule the United States. Just like they have for the past three years.

Scenes from a book tour gone horribly awry. So, who’s in charge?

Maryland will hold one of three primaries in the nation Tuesday. After acknowledging it is impossible for him to win the GOP presidential nomination outright, Gingrich has vowed to stay in the presidential race even after firing a third of his campaign staff last week, taking the fight to the party convention.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

Both Santorum and his wife as well as his campaign seem a bit past tired. If today’s primaries give him no relief, I imagine he’ll be tired all the way up to the convention.
