Every so often, the Detroit Free Press editorial page has a caption contest for strange photos of various pols “in action.” Other than the one of Hillary Rodham Cankles in angry form with Ted Kennedy, I think this one, from today’s Freep, by AP photog M. Spencer Green, is my favorite. I’ve posted some of my captions below. Feel free to post yours in the comments section.

Of Course, I Love Pigs. Don’t You Remember My Vote Against Convicting Bill Clinton upon Impeachment?
Just Preparing For My Debate Against Hillary.
You Think This is Pork? Wait ‘Til I Get to the White House.
Who Says Animals Aren’t Intelligent? This One is Far Smarter Than the GOP Voters Who Buy My Conservative Act.
Pig? No, I Said My Plan for the Economy is a Real Dog.
****UPDATE: Here are two more:
Lipstick on a Pig? No, I Only Wear Makeup When I’m on “Law & Order.”
Hey, Piggy, Can You Believe These Suckers Are Comparing Me to Ronald Reagan? Next, They’ll Be Comparing You to a Peacock.
