Picture of the Day ("Hello, Ladies" Edition)

No-chance-in-hell presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, enjoying a little time to himself away from all those pesky campaign staffers, in Mykonos.

Seconds later, he was attacked and dragged into the ocean by a killer whale that mistook him for a slow-moving sea lion.

Or actually, I like Josh Marshall at TPM's take on it on Twitter: "Gingrich pictured on deserted island staffers abandoned him on before they steered pirate ship back to the mainland."

Update: Here's a fine little twist to this story: Apparently, despite the uncanny resemblance and the fact that he was recently vacationing in Greece, Newt Gingrich says he's not the guy in this picture. TMZ has even taken the shot down, which is surprising considering the fact that while they may be a "tabloid" outfit, Harvey and Co. rarely get anything wrong.

If ever there was a more perfect image of the problem with this country.

Rich fat old white man sitting on his pasty but enjoying the Grecian sun while the rest of us toil away in cubicles or cabs or blue Walmart smocks so we can afford ramen noodles and petrol, daydreaming about our upcoming 'staycation.'
