    You know what’s fun? Losing elections and then writing a book.

    “Just so you know Newt, I’m destroying this photo the day after the primary…..You’re squeezing my hand, Newt………..


  4. - Small Town Liberal - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 11:29 am:

    “Newt, he supports traditional families so much he’s had 3 of them.”


  5. - In the know - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 11:31 am:

    As an aside, the photo was taken at Darin LaHood’s biggest Peoria funder. In addition to Dillard: Brady, Rutherford staffers and a few congresscritters, were on hand (no Erica Harold). Seemed to be lots of people. Should help in HIS bid to go statewide if he decides to do that.

  8. - MrJM - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 11:34 am:

  12. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 11:42 am:

    “Son, I hope you’ve canned the fool who drew up those yard signs.”


  13. - Levi - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 11:46 am:

  21. - Keyrock - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 12:41 pm:

  22. - Nearly Normal - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 12:57 pm:

  23. - CircularFiringSquad - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 1:00 pm:

    I don’t have a caption, but is that guy on the left Rep. David Leitch?


  25. - wordslinger - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 1:31 pm:

    Dull, Duller, Dillard.


  26. - zatoichi - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 1:41 pm:

    Newton: Wait a second. This IS a pickpocket scam!


  27. - VonKlutzenplatz - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 1:56 pm:

    Think about what the Obama comments will do to Dillard in a primary.
    This photo will have a similar impact in a general.

    The Over the Hill But Not Over Themselves Gang


  29. - Stones - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 2:35 pm:

    How did that guy sneak into the photo over Newt’s right shoulder?


  30. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 2:57 pm:

    Although thought to be a running Vaudevulle gag, this is the last known picture of the firm “Dewey, Cheetam, and Howe”…


  31. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 3:03 pm:

    “Taking nothing for granted, state Senator Kirk Dillard is cornering the ‘The Retired Republican Rotary Lobby’ or ‘3 “R”s’, with this picture of … Retired Speaker Newt Gingrich. Opposite of this page is the picture with Kirk Dillard with Retired Governor Jim Edgar.”


  32. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 3:04 pm:

    Those aren’t pillows!

    Nut, Newt, Nawt.


  37. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 3:55 pm:

    “I love Newt. He went ahead and married all the ones he fooled around with.”


  38. - A guy... - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 4:13 pm:

    It’s true that being in a picture with bigger,grayer and meaner guys will make you look smaller, younger and nicer. The guy on the left only accentuates the point. He might be the only guy this picture doesn’t haunt.


  39. - Joan P. - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 4:18 pm:

    Newt to handlers: “Who’s this guy? And what state am I in now?”


  40. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 4:27 pm:

    KD: Dave, can you please move out of the picture? I’m running for Governor for goodness sakes.

    DL: Well, it’s my Iphone!


  41. - wordslinger - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 7:14 pm:

    Newt: So Sen. Lard, how’d you find your in-house graphic artist?

    D Lard: A senator from Arkansas I met at an ALEC hooked me up.
