Thanks for all your entries. A couple of folks entered variations of the winning caption (kudos to Moses Luski, Charlotte, and Phil Clutts, Harrisburg), but we felt Mr. Elvenstar had the most succinct phrasing of this idea. Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
“I’m confident I can hold things together.”
“I leave Washington and my popularity grows!”
"The deficit supercommittee needed a place to hide."
"I am getting an early start on my next job."
"I know it looks big but it's only 15 trillion leaves."
"It's a monument to the economy. It's about as stable and is already beginning to decompose."
"We're a little short on funds for a Christmas tree this year."
"It's the Washington way, piled high and wide!"
“My success has always been dependent on which way the wind blows.”
