And … They’re Off! | Capitol Quip

Congress has left for its August recess — ahem, district work period — leaving critics to claim that the legislative branch is taking time off when the country can least afford it.

Regardless of where you fall on this divide, send us a caption for this week’s Capitol Quip! Leave it in the comments section below. Editors will pick five finalists on Wednesday, and everyone can vote for the winner until Thursday afternoon.
