Ticket photo of the week: Democrat Obama confronts a puzzling dilemma
Again, we have a surreal photograph of President Barack Obama in action. This time the confused Democrat is caught in the New Orleans rain with a wide umbrella, a narrow gate and no White House staff to help.
Possible captions include:
-- Was this umbrella from the Bush era?
-- Get me Petraeus!
-- Honey, maybe if you climb up and over the gate......
-- Where the #$&\* is Rahm when you need him?
-- No, I never ran a private business. Senators have staff for this.
-- We need a new federal program to design collapsible umbrellas for tight spaces.
-- Umbrella was an elective at Harvard.
-- OK, so the top of the gate represents 37 million uninsured Americans. Now, if we raise the price of health insurance for everyone up to here....
-- Julie Andrews made this look so easy.
-- Andrew Malcolm
