Take a picture, kids. Touching a right-wing book is as bipartisan as I get.

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was another monster hit. There were many excellent entries, so many that I could not honor them all. Anyway, the assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

U.S. President Barack Obama holds up books by former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President George W. Bush's political strategist Karl Rove (L) as he shops for books for his daughters Sasha and Malia at Prairie Lights book store in Iowa City, March 25, 2010.

Here are the winning entries:

1) (IowaRight) - "The bookstore clerk did the best he could. He had never been asked for do-it-yourself books on how to run a country before..."

2) (tomg51) - "This is it? You're out of Palin? You've got to be kidding."

3) (Peter F.) - "Take a picture, kids. Touching a right-wing book is as bipartisan as I get."

4) (Jeff Blogworthy) - "Add these to the burn list."

5) (sarahconnor2) - "Too bad he's not picking up some books in the diplomacy and etiquette department."

6) (guido) - "Haha, these idiots actually wrote these themselves!"

The Readers Choice Award this week went IowaRight's winning entry. In its place we recognize the next highest vote getter:

(iwogisdead) - "President Obama is shown holding two bricks which were thrown through windows at the Democratic National Headquarters by Republicans. Except they weren't "bricks," but were "books." And they weren't thrown, but were delivered in boxes. And they weren't at the Democratic National Headquarters, but at a bookstore. The White House has denounced this act of Domestic Terrorism."

That's all for this weekend. A new edition of the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ will debut Friday morning.
