This week, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee joined Rep. Alan Grayson to deliver nearly 90,000 petition signatures to Sen. Harry Reid -- telling him to lay down the law with Dem Senators who are threatening to block an up-or-down vote on health care.
Along the way, a funny thing happened. We ran into Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) -- one of the lead public option opponents -- walking around the Senate with his puppy. We talked with him about our petition, all while he had dog-in-arms, and we released the video Friday.
But now, we're announcing a fun-filled caption contest.
Can you think of the perfect caption for this picture of Kent Conrad? If so, submit your caption here.
The winner will get $100 and their caption featured in a progressive blog ad.
This contest will be the most fun if lots of people participate -- so please rec this diary and email it to folks you know who are creative! Here are some of the nominations so far:
My dog was a German Shepherd before the Veterinarian Co-Op got a hold of him.
The US insurance industry: even our lapdogs have lapdogs.
I provide better health care for my dog than I do my constituents.
My dog ate my copy of the health reform bill.
Well, it’s dog eat dog around here.
If it was a poodle option...
My dog has better health care than 45 million Americans!
That was the deal from the health insurance companies. A big campaign donation and a poodle.
Then, please rec this post.
