Picture of the Day: Newt Gingrich's Dream Team

More

The fading GOP contender strikes a dramatic pose, flanked by supporters -- but he's just stealing his own graphics.

Meet the Gingrich Faith Leaders Coalition. Included in its ranks are Tim LaHaye, author of the Left Behind books; former Oklahoma Rep. JC Watts; and of course, the incomparable Chuck Norris. Is it just us, or does this remind anyone of Ron Burgundy and his band of local-news sidekicks in Anchorman?

But Gingrich isn't just knocking off Will Ferrell flicks. He's also knocking off a graphic he himself used over the weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference. That image, below, also featured Watts and Norris, along with several other failed candidates who have endorsed him: Herman Cain, Rick Perry, and Fred Thompson. If he thought no one was paying attention, he must have missed this. It also appears that someone on his PhotoShop team has flipped the JC Watts and Chuck Norris photos over -- generally considered a big photo-editing no-no.
