Caption Contest: By The Dawn's Early Light

The results are in for the weekly Photo Caption Contest! The Patriette, at the twilight's last gleaming, began the laborious process of weeding through the 62 outstanding entries in the comments section. These, then, are the winning entries that the rockets' red glare and bombs bursting in air give proof are still there:

Patriette Missile Award -- Cassandra:

Edwards: "Well... if you're sure this will win over the Log Cabin Republicans..."

The Patriette's Star-Spangled Banter Award (for the most creative dialogue used as a caption) -- Don:

(for those who remember the old Saturday morning 'Justice League' superhero cartoon):
Both: "Wonder twin powers activated!"
Kerry: "Form of: A Presidential Candidate"
Edwards: "Wait! I wanted to be the Presidential Candidate!"

1st Runner-Up -- Bryan:

The attached-at-the-brain Democratic candidates were separated after a long, grueling procedure that led to one's demise and the other suffering from schizophrenia and delusions of grandeur.

2nd Runner-Up -- Jim S

John Edwards turns down a surprise offer from John Kerry to be his "Third Lady".

Honorable Mentions:


"By marrying John Edwards, clearly I am showing my opposition to gay marriage."

Pile On:

I'm John Kerry, and I have approved this public display of tender man on man affection.

Report to Sick Bay (On The Double) -- Erick-Woods Erickson:

Kerry: "Boy, let me put this in terms someone from North Carolina can understand. If you don't drop out now, I'm gonna make you squeal like a pig."

Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks again to everyone who participated. Big, big thanks to The Patriette for doing all the work. (Man, I love that!) As usual, the comments section on this post are wide open for disputes, slander, and obloquy towards the Captain and the Patriette for their selections, as well as any late entries that people want to throw in. Just remember, there are no losers here except the guy who runs this garbage scow ...

This Friday, I've arranged to actually have a prize for the top caption -- a humorous book written and self-published by a friend of mine. I'll post the details along with the new picture on Friday. We'll see you then!
