In honor of our special commemorative Pictures of the Year issue (on newsstands today!), we’ve asked a few staffers around the office to grab a copy and choose their favorite photograph. Here’s senior writer Nick Summers on the above GOP line-up shot:
You have to love this: the GOP nomination fight as trashy reality TV show. Each character is better than the next—Google-challenged Santorum, pumpkin-faced Newt, crazy-eyes Bachmann, plasticky frontrunner Mitt, ornery six-gun Perry, the irrepressible Ron Paul, searching for Uzbeki-beki-beki-beki-stan Cain, and even the normal-seeming Huntsman as foil.
