Photo Caption Contest Winner: Tear-anny at the White House Press Conference?
May 20, 2013 - 9:13 am
Thanks to all who contributed to our latest Photo Caption Contest.
With all the scandals swirling around President Obama, expect even more tears in the next few weeks because Obama knows his legacy is threatened.
And what does our fearless leader do when his legacy is threatened?
“I sure want to do some governing,” is what President Obama told a star- studded crowd at a New York City fundraiser just hours after last Monday’s “tearful” press conference.
Now, as the contest judge, if someone had submitted that statement as a caption contest entry they would have been awarded the Grand Prize.
Therefore, I declare President Obama our honorary Caption Contest winner. (I am sure he will place our trophy next to his Nobel Peace Prize.)
Speaking of “noble” winners, let’s start with our list of Honorable Mentions.

I’m a better scandal than Nixon and a better crier than Boehner.

*Sniff*, why am I finally being held accountable for the first time ever?

“Where’s a Marine to block water off my face when I need one?”
“There’s no ‘there’ there, er, I mean, there’s no tear there.”
Cfbleachers our Caption King Emeritus submitted:
I’m going to miss Chris Matthews tingling leg soooo much.
And the Grand Prize goes to our reigning Caption King, Chris Henderson with:
White House plumbers have been called in to fix the leak in Obama’s tear duct.
Congratulations to King Henderson who continues his serious winning streak!
Just in case some of you are too young to understand the humor in this winning entry, here is the “White House Plumbers” definition from Wiki:
The White House Plumbers, sometimes simply called the Plumbers, were a covert White House Special Investigations Unit established July 24, 1971 during the presidency of Richard Nixon. Its task was to stop the leaking of classified information to the news media. Its members branched into illegal activities working for the Committee to Re-elect the President, including the Watergate break-in and the ensuing Watergate scandal.
But now its 2013.… “gate” scandals are so overplayed and the current White House has no need for plumbers. Instead, they just fix their own problems “in-house” because the law is irrelevant.
See you next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest! (And if you don’t see another contest, it’s because I am busy fending off an IRS audit.)
