(click on photo to enlarge)

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announce the Republican tax-reform initiative on Sept. 27, accompanied by Sens. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), and Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Mich.), on Capitol Hill in Washington. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)

In today's Washington Post "Letters to the Editor:"
I offer my highest praises to photographer Melina Mara for her expertly timed and framed, snort-coffee-out-your-nose photograph of the self-proclaimed congressional leadership for “tax reform” [front page, Sept. 28]. Mara should be encouraged to provide material for a weekly caption competition. I’d suggest, “One guy you want in your wallet, and seven you don’t” for this one. But I’m sure readers would find this picture and more like it fertile ground for a wide range of humorous responses.

That's a pretty hard one to beat.  How about "One guy who can't tell a lie, and seven who can't tell the truth."

Knock yourselves out!

Which one changes the light bulb?

W. Hackwhacker said...

I believe it takes all seven: one to change the bulb and six to lie about what they're doing!

Green Eagle said...

Perhaps you mean one to steal the light bulb and six to blame it on the Democrats.

W. Hackwhacker said...

That would work too!
