Frustrated lawmakers pointing at signs are funny. We learned that and more (but mostly that) from the latest batch of submissions to our Google-powered Caption Challenge.
Here are a couple that we especially enjoyed. Come add your own, then share and vote on your favorites.

Earlier this month Jim DeMint announced he was leaving the Senate in January to run the Heritage Foundation, perhaps because the Wingnuts of America Foundation isn't hiring.
This meant that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley got to pick someone to replace him, and today she will announce her choice: Rep. Tim Scott, a Tea Partier who joined Congress during the Republican midterm victory in 2010. What is his deal?

South Carolina's Jim DeMint, the Tea Party's leading advocate in Washington, will be leaving the Senate come January, probably so he can spend less time with people like Jim DeMint. DeMint will take up the presidency of the Heritage foundation, while Governor Nikki Haley will name his Senate replacement. What does it all mean?
1. Lindsey Graham no longer has to talk to DeMint. He'll also face much weaker primary competition in 2014, as South Carolina's battiest conservatives compete for DeMint's old seat in the 2014 special election.

Earlier today, the Supreme Court largely upheld the constitutionality the Affordable Care Act, including the individual mandate. Ill-advised reactions were also mandated.
1. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky…
"Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be 'constitutional' does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care right."
Paul is right. It takes 5 people.
2. Sarah Palin on the death of freedom…
Obama lied to the American people. Again. He said it wasn't a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies.

Maybe freedom should have bought some insurance instead of being so irresponsible with its health.
