Candid Caption Contest

mike 773831 Candid Caption ContestSwaddled in layers of spin, bogged down with talking points, it’s often hard for campaigning candidates to be, well…candid.

So now that the race is run, it’s your turn. I’ve posted a pair of my favorite pictures from the last days on the trail.

Got some good caption ideas? Post ‘em in the comments section…

[note added: Five minutes ago, whilst reading the Urban Elephants blog, I realized they beat me to the punch and opened the floor for Freddy-banana captions on Monday… in an entirely weird and unintentional coincidence, I picked the photo from a news site this morning because it made me snarf my coffee. But I’ll give props – and apologies! – where they’re due. And keep those captions coming.]
