caption contest, Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel

Most of the caption contests here use pictures loaded with randomness, but this week I’m going to use a political photo, so we can try to make some political humor.  This photo is of President Barack Obama relaxing, while his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is on the phone.  I have no idea what the actual context of this picture is, but who needs context?  We get to make it up, which is what makes it fun!

Just remember to keep the comments funny and clean.  You can make political statements, but make them funny (whether laugh-out-loud or satire or irony).  This isn’t the place for serious long-winded rants about why your preferred political party is great and/or the other party siphons.  (Comments violating this rule may be deleted, per the site’s rules.)   Of course you can reference current political events, or you can make up any context you want.  Have fun with it!

    Emanuel: “Mrs. Blanche Lincoln, we NEED your vote! … I know we bribed the Louisiana representative with $300 million, but we can’t do that for everyone!”

  2. Thomas Wayne

    Rahm: “Why is this called the Oval Office?”

    Obama: “I’m gonna close my eyes and pretend my Chief of Staff isn’t stupid.”

  3. Beppo

    Obama, thinking to self: “Why doesn’t everyone see that my plans are for the good of everyone? I blame it on those right-wing extremists. They must really hate America, because they don’t agree with everything I do.”

    Obama: “Rahm, launch another attack on FOX News! Their dissenting opinion of me is unpatriotic! We must have unity, at all costs!”

    Rahm: “Aye-aye, Captain!”

  4. Thomas Wayne

    Obama: “This health care bill MUST pass soon! You’d better make it happen or I’ll throw you under the bus, too!”

    Rahm (on phone with Joe “Plugs” Biden): Yeah, Joe he’s asleep. You know how grumpy the man child gets if he doesn’t get his nap.

    Obama thinks to himself: “I am content with the fact that I care more about the healthcare of my citizens at home than the healthcare of my citizens fighting in other countries.”

    Rahm: “Mr. President, we announced you are going to make your official decision on afghanistan in the next few weeks.”

    Newspaper article reads: Another suicide bomber kills soldiers….

    Another article reads: More help needed to secure afghan population….

    Still another article reads: Obama takes time from busy schedule to fly across the world in air force one to bring the olympics to chicago…

    Rahm (talking on phone): “no, i’m sorry mr. obama cannot speak to you on the phone… why? no… he’s not busy… he’s right here doing nothing… it’s just that the teleprompter has not been installed in the oval office yet.”

  8. Mr. Destructo

    Rahm, whispering: “You mean another Democrat in Obama’s administration hasn’t been paying their taxes? Inconceivable! I’m not telling him! Here, I’ll hand him the phone.”
