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.

Mitt Romney in Florence SC. That’s the amazing Charlie Dharapak from AP on the left and his equally amazing colleague/competitor Jim Young from Reuters on the right. Two of the best political photogs in the business. (Taken with instagram)

The best thing about Iowa Caucus week is that all of my favorite political photographers are on the ground shooting amazing—and hilarious—stuff. Case in point: This photo of Newt Gingrich campaigning at the National Farm Toy Museum in Dyersville, Iowa, by AP’s Charlie Dharapak. Seriously, have you ever seen Gingrich look SO FREAKING EXCITED?! TOY TRACTORS!!
