Isn't there something in the syllabus at GOP candidate school that tells them to avoid shots like these?

This picture of Michele Bachmann (and this one) is just unfortunate:

Then there's Marcus Bachmann, who is totally butch!

Most of the rest of the field refused to be caught on film doing, um, the thing it is that the Bachmanns are doing. Mitt Romney just walked around with a half-eaten corn dog:

That was pretty smart—pretend to eat that thing, but not actually ingest that monstrosity in public. It's nice to have servants do his dirty work. Reporters apparently fell asleep before Tim Pawlenty swallowed his, and really, I'd shoot myself if I came across a photo of Newt Gingrich performing fellatio on a corn dog.

But Rick Perry? He's not going to let Bachmann upstage him!

He wins.

And yes, in case you suddenly started wondering—there are long-running persistent rumors that Rick Perry is gay.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
