Newt Gingrich won’t quit the Republican presidential race tonight, but safe to say, it will probably happen soon. And while, barring a last minute miracle, he’ll come up short in his bid for the GOP nomination, Gingrich is (as I’ve said before) is the far and away winner when it comes to hilarious political photo-ops this election.
Who else would have posed, arms extended, in front of a giant rocket or campaigned at nail salons and candy stores? And we haven’t even talked about his tour of the nation’s zoos—though his campaign blew a good opportunity there by not taking his traveling press along. All this to say: I’ll really miss those hilarious Newt photos.
