Cain + Gingrich = Caingrich

Rate: 3 Flag

I was able to get some decent shots of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich as they were making their way out of the California Republican Convention yesterday. Please appreciate that I don't have one of those long-assed lenses (nor would I know how to use one if I did), so I had to get real close to Newt to get these shots of him.

Click here for my report on Newt's new obsession with algae (he said the word ten times) and how he talks kind of like the Robot Monster.

Herman Cain
Young and old alike miss Herman Cain in this race as much as I do (along with Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewert, Bill Maher and just about everyone else with a pulse).

Herman Cain
Herman Cain at his most Herman Cain.

Herman Cain in Burligame
More of the Cain Train. Oh how I miss the Cain Train.

Newt Gingrich in Burlingame
Newt Gingrich probably talking about algae. This man loves algae.

Newt Gingrich
Come on Newt! Smile for the camera! Newt: "I am smiling." Um, maybe you shouldn't smile. Note: you can see Calista Gingrich's helmet of hair behind his right shoulder. I should've tried to get a shot of her, but I realized that Herman Cain hadn't left the building.

Okay, this thing needs it's own blog post, but I haven't "read" it yet.

YOU haven't read it yet? Sheesh, mun; you're a hard guy to keep up with, but I'll tell you this. I'm trying. [My favorite years-ago two liner: "We know you're trying. VERY trying."]

Double R for your two most recent posts. ;-)
@podunkmarte, I got distracted by the Oscars. I'll review "The New Democrat" by Dr. Truth in the next couple of days. This means I might have to read this thing on the train to work tomorrow though. I might have to make one of those brown paperbag book covers like the teachers made us make in junior high school. Thanks for reading and rating.
