Kent ConradThis 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.

Got a nomination? Submit it here!

Then, please rec this post.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
