The actual caption:
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (R) and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace discuss the military spending in George W. Bush's 2007 budget during a news conference at the Pentagon in Washington February 6, 2006. The budget requests $439.3 billion in discretionary budget authority for the Department of Defense, a seven percent increase over last year's budget. (Joshua Roberts/Reuters)
Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

Winners from last week (this week was difficult to judge with such a profusion of great entries):
A plantation worker from the House of Representatives thanks Senator Hillary Clinton for her support.
“WHERE’S YOUR GOD NOW!!!!?!?!?!?!”
"Oh God, Sheehan is behind you with a Hillary '08 button. Don't look! Don't Look!"
"So, I said to Bill... you see these stong white teeth? Remember them the next time you think about unzipping your trousers in front of an intern."
An unexpected reaction between the Senator Clinton's Botox treatments and a Diet Coke couldn't be ignored no matter how hard she tried to play it off.
"I wait three years for a face transplant and the only one you could find is Hillary's? Are you frickin' kidding me?"
Bill's inflatable love doll expells some hot air, becoming deformed.
A horse is a horse, of course, of course.
After a bitter public dispute with Alvin and Simon over song-writing credit on their hit single "Christmas Don't Be Late", Hillary the one time "fourth Chipmunk", split with the band and went on to pursue a career as a Communist.
I said "no more wire hangers!"
Briefly forced to come up for air, Hillary gives her all, 'Sucking Up' to keep minority voters on the Plantation.
Honorable Mention #9
"And I was like, 'Social security?! Oh no he di'n!' And she was like, 'Oh yes he did!' And I was like, 'Nuh uh!' And she was like, 'Shyeah, you know it!'"
Honorable Mention #10
"Aside from a swift knee to the groin, what method works best to keep Bill at bay", inquired a constituent to Senator Clinton Tuesday.
Honorable Mention #11
Hillary's poker face gives her away every time!...
"How long will wait to applaud at anything the President says, Mrs. Clinton?"
DRUDGEBREAKING: Rabid chipmunk attends State of Union Address. Developing ...
The golden rod, previously stuck up the former first lady's a$$, reaches her brain.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton practices smiling in advance of President Bush's State of the Union Adress. In past years, Senator Clinton has been on the receiving end of criticism for her sour expressions during Bush's speeches, and is determined to silence those critics tonight. January 31, 2006.

Rumsfeld found that hypnosis was the only way to get the Joint Chiefs to buy into his vision of the future role of the US Military in fighting the global war on terrorism.

Rumsfeld again misjudges his audience by using sign language to deliver a speech on defense policy to a crowd of blind partisans.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield, bored with the pedestrian nature of the questions at his news conference, practices his budding powers of mental telepathy by causing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to fall asleep as he stands at the podium beside him.

However, I am pleased to announce that we've put the $493 billion of taxpayers money to good use, developed invisible strings to go with the invisible puppet we built last year.
Look - it's dancing.

Oops. That should have been:

Hmmm, no, that wasn't right either. I need a good copy-editor. Maybe this time:

Don Rumsfeld and Peter Pace square off against Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck (not pictured) in the Pentagon version of "Hungarian Rhapsody." Much hilarity ensued.

"I was positioned perfectly and struck the small of her back with a classic kung fu tiger claw thrust. Hillary's face has been frozen in the most hideous contorted expression ever since."

Helen Thomas: "Secretary Rumsfeld, how would you characterize your response to the 'Shark-like' danger that military spending has become to the federal deficit."
Posted by: Rodney Dill at February 9, 2006 12:41 PM
Sec. Rumsfeld: "Oh, I know you keep saying that we'll never find WMD's in Iraq... New York Times said 'You'll never find..." Boston Globe reporter just the other day did it to; he said "You'll never find..."
You'll never find... hey that reminds me of that Barry White song... you know the one: "You'll never find.... (Bum bummmm budda bummmm)"
Chief Pace: "Uh, Mister Secretary, I believe that was actually Lou Rawls. Oh, uh, sorry, um... nice Air Piano, sir."

As a demonstration of his true power, Darth Rumsfeld prepares to unleash a round of "Force lightning" on the assembled members of the press.

After Donald Rumsfeld demonstrated his new hypnotic technique at a recent Pentagon briefing, the press reaction was unanimous: "I love it! Much better than Cats! I'm going to see it again and again!"

In a special news conference, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld indicates that the extra seven percent of next years budget will be used to train an elite unite of the Special Forces in the Wierding Way. "It works on terrorists, and moonbats alike. Watch as I simultaneously bend a single joint in my middle finger while using the Voice to approve the budget."
Posted by: the paperboy at February 10, 2006 04:12 PM
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace had tried and tried to tell Rumsfeld that using gang signs was a 'bad idea' when pitching this budget to the NAACP but it was to no avail as Rummy asked the crowd,"Who let the Pork out!"

"Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld entertains the crowd during a news conference at the Pentagon with his air-piano rendition of 'Stairway to Heaven' while Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace rocks on to his right."
