"I am not totally certain I’ll get to the moon colony," Newt Gingrich said, as he officially suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Still, he called his 2012 bid a “truly wild ride” full of “astonishing” and “amazing” moments. (Photo by Evan Vucci/AP)
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.

Sooner or later, Newt Gingrich will end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination—at least, Mitt Romney hopes he will. And I have to say, it will be a sad day for political photography since he’s the only candidate still willing to do hilarious photo ops, like this one at the NASCAR Museum in Charlotte over the weekend. Newt Gingrich in a suit pretending to fuel up a fake NASCAR? Hilarious. (Photo credit: NBC’s Alex Moe)
