1,000 Words: The Winners

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter and President Obama at an appearance this morning. (Gerald Martineau- TWP)

Yesterday we asked Fixistas to offer their best caption for the photo above -- taken early Wednesday morning at the White House featuring President Barack Obama and Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), the newest member of the Democratic Party.

Creative captions poured in and we sorted through them to find the best of the best. The winner -- and those deserving of honorable mention -- are below. Thanks to all who participated!

The winner:
"You complete me." -- Posted by: JohnnieVoodoo.

Honorable mentions:
"I can't tell what it is but you look different from the guy's in my old party." -- Posted by: myhojda

"Should I have waited until after Franken was sworn in?" -- Posted by: caribis

The Republicans can come back if they convenced Norm Colemen to do the right thing and concede which they won't do. It will also show their honestly as to doing the right thing. But that is a dream. Its Discraceful that the Governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty has not signed the election certificate for Franken, this goes to show the voters again how SICK the Republicans are. They stripped the Stimulus bill of funding for flue vacinations (now we have an outbreak of swine flue), stole the 2000 election from Gore, destroyed our economy, held up nominees for the OBAMA administration and worst, disinfranchizing the voters of Minnesota, this is the worst politics. As a former Republican it makes me sick to my stomach to see how this party has lost its integrity.

myhodja's caption shouldn't have an apostrophe in "guys" - it's plural, not possessive.
