Dan Seals "Sticker Shock" Caption Contest (UPDATED)
One of our commentors pointed out this priceless picture of Dan ('We're buying gas, not votes') Seals pumping gas yesterday in Lincolnshire that was associated with the Daily Herald online article on the "Gas for Votes" fiasco yesterday, but I missed it, as it was not in the print edition of the paper.
Sure seems prime material for a caption contest to me. Have at it.
UPDATE: The Pioneer Press has this story on Gas Gate. Seals says the event was not intended to influence peoples' votes, but to make them aware of how the Bush administration's energy policies are hurting consumers at the gas pump. "There's no voting buying here," Seals said. "I think he (Kirk) is trying to distract people from the real issue, which is that people are fed up with the prices they're paying at the pump."
Exercise-- read Seals' quote "There's no vote buying here" Then look up at the picture. Then read the quote again. Repeat until it sinks in. SEALS TRIED TO BUY VOTES. Knock, knock, Dan. That's the U.S. Attorney at the door.
