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