The Fix: Caption Contest

Fix Caption Contest: Michele Bachmann tries out Google Glass

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is trying out the latest technological craze: Google Glass.

The Minnesota congresswoman was photographed outside a House Republican meeting Wednesday morning sporting the product, which is basically a voice-activated computer mounted to a pair of glasses.

Knowing The Fix's readers as we do, we thought you'd come up with some great captions for it. So check out the pictures below and take to the comments section at the bottom of the post.

To the winner: a signed copy of "The Gospel According to the Fix."

#FixCaption: We have a winner

Last week, we asked readers to caption the photo taken by White House photographer Pete Souza of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in the Oval Office for the chance to win a copy of Chris Cillizza's "The Gospel According to The Fix."

We got lots of responses on Twitter (#FixCaption) and on the original post:. And, yes, "Binders" and 47 percent jokes were popular. But, in the holiday spirit, the winner selected by the Fix team is

Congrats, @leliorisen! We'll reach out to you on Twitter, or you can e-mail jenningsng [at] to claim your prize.

Close, but no mistletoe, are these two entrants:

Obama: No I owe you a lunch

I ate yours on November 6th


Romney: I love what the First Lady has done.

All the Christmas decorations are the right height.


Thanks, all, for participating.

Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, perfect together?: A Fix caption contest

(Pablo Martinez Monsivais - AP)

We would say this photo of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Speaker John Boehner says it all about how the two parties feel about the Supreme Court ruling on President Obama’s health-care law today.

Of course, the photo was taken Wednesday by an AP photographer at an event honoring surviving members of the Montford Point Marines. (Hat tip to the Atlantic’s Molly Ball, who tweeted this photo Thursday afternoon.)

Still, it’s an image crying out for a caption. That’s where you come in. Enter your caption in the comments section or tweet it using the hashtag #FixCaption by noon on Friday. The most clever captioner (as decided by the Fix team) will win an official Fix t-shirt.
