The GOP Unity Ticket? | Capitol Quip


Illustrator R.J. Matson’s latest cartoon needs a caption.

While you were at the beach last week, the tea party’s favorite lawmaker, Minnesota GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann, decided not to run for re-election. Funny thing though, her announcement kind of coincided with former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole’s, R-Kan., decision to criticize the direction Bachmann and other conservative purists have taken the party. There should be a lot of good fodder there, so have at it!

Leave us your caption in the comments section below. Editors will pick five finalists Wednesday, and then everyone can vote for the winner until Thursday afternoon. The winner gets a signed print from Matson.
