Our Man in Iraq

Jim Long, NBC News
Handlers, heretics and heroes alike will all know that Style Has Arrived when this dashing photog touches down in beautiful Baghdad! Yes, from those clever frames to that wallet in his pocket, no one sports Kevlar and khakis like Jim "I'm a Dancer" Long, the NBC cameraman known across the planet for his jaunty stance and gleeful spree of Tweets. You've heard me yammer about him... You've seen him on The Today Show! Soon you can even enjoy this goofy news shooter on The Apprentice: Ehhhh...THAT Guy! For now, you'll have to dig the cut of his jib from afar, as he's busy trailing Secretary of State Clinton through the middle of Iraq. Or maybe he's back by now. Hell, with panache like that, the world's your runway. Now, Vogue-Vogue-Vogue-Vogue....

Oh, by the way, it is my understanding that Dwaine Scott, aka @NBCNewsCrew, shot Long's Today Show cameo.

Its a small (twitter) world.

Even on the worst of days in DC, running into Jim on a shoot is always a pleasure.
