Picture of the Day - 3

Tommy Thompson at the Iowa straw poll.

(Joshua Lott/Reuters) (Snark removed after comments.)


  • OK. I gotta stand up for Thompson on this. He really is a motorcyclist and this isn't a Romney-chicken-flipin' photo-op, prop shot. He's legitimate. Not a weekend warrior, but a genuine enthusiast who's got plenty of miles in the saddle.

    I still wouldn't vote for him, but he's probably one of the more "human" candidates the GOP has in the pack.

  • Really? I find that surprising.

  • True though. After all, Wisconsin is home to Harley-Davidson...

    (You don't ride, do you? :-))

  • Yep, he rode all the way from Sturgis this week to be there...

  • Wow, I'm sorry guys. I'll pull the snark.

  • It's cool, Mike. That's what separates us (you, me, other decent Americans) from the right wing: we care about what's true. It speaks volumes that a progressive blog cares about getting it right, and the Fox toady blogs care about... well, crushing dissenting voices at any cost.

    Good on you, Mike.

  • Sometimes I do. I figure Tommy's probably having a bad enough day without me.

  • Mike, mine was snark also.

  • Well I hope you snarksters are happy. I'm sure you had something to do with this...
