Obama teleprompter

Provide the winning caption to the picture above and win a free t-shirt, suitable for any formal occasion, courtesy of the esteemed countermoonbats at Party Crasher.

The winner will be announced Monday. Free shirts need to be claimed within a week (i.e., I need a mailing address). T-shirts for the contest are available in blue L or XL only, although white shirts and other sizes are available directly from Party Crasher, along with an excellent selection of other t-shirts guaranteed to cause moonbats to sputter with impotent rage. All shirts are currently at least 20% off.

Via Roto-Reuters. On tips from Doug, Libtard, and Sean.

  9. Doug Ess says:

    “Speaking to you from an undisclosed location…”

  10. Linda says:

    After the debacle “You did not build it” Obama is forced to glue a teleprompter to his face!

  11. Wilberforce says:

    “Perfect Progressive Avatar.”

  12. Sweep the leg says:

    Perfect fit. AND, we don’t have to feed it anymore!

  13. Logic Mine says:

    The Obama Administration’s transparancy is as clear as the nose on his face!

    “Speaking off the record” Your doing it wrong

  16. Mrs. Pilgrim says:

    “I got a ‘V’ mask to help me connect better with the little people. What do you think?”

  17. Mrs. Pilgrim says:

    (If I can add a second entry…)

    President Obama’s attempt at embracing his white ancestry by putting on “white-face” makeup, predictably, went terribly wrong.

    no caption needed thats pretty much the perfect picture to tell you who this man really is.

  23. Tony says:

    Uhh, I’m drawing a blank here.

  24. Jodie says:

  25. snuss says:

    I told you that Obama was just an empty suit!

  26. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    New! Tomato and rotten vegetable shield!

  28. Oden says:

    I still can’t read this. Who made the damn font so small! Get me a cigarette, NOW!

  29. Wyld Goose says:

    “It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself–anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face…; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime…”
    – George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5

    …..OK, as I was saying, George Bush is responsible for Bain Capital and it’s campaign to close businesses and give everybody cancer in all 57 states, and……oh, what now, Valerie??? I’m running against Romney?……”

  36. Redtarn says:

    “I see hope and change!”

  37. Geeknerd says:

    Res ipsa loquitor.

    (For those of you in Rio Linda, that’s “the thing speaks for itself” in Latin.)

  38. Restless says:

    A short time later, Obama ripped into his campaign staff: “When I told you to ‘cover up that ugly thing,’ I was talking about the flag.”

  39. Bob Roberts says:

    I was going to say it, but it appears Tim beat me to it:

    There is no perfect caption to that picture. None needed. It speaks for itself.

    Geeknerd said it, too, but in Latin.

    I do like what Restless said, just above, though.

  40. Bob Roberts says:

    But, since it is a caption contest:

    The Obama administration finally figures out how to conceal Obama’s cocaine-induced nose rubbing.

  41. Henry says:

    Apologies to Stevo; I missed your comment before posting my second one.

  42. Jodie says:


    It’s that “great minds think alike” thing. Conservatives are very clever people!

    I can only imagine how unfunny and angry a liberal caption contest would be.

  43. Vladtheimp says:

    I’ve heard of anal bleaching but never seen it before in real life until this picture appeared.

  44. Ummah Gummah says:

    A circuit court judge has ordered that the Marine veteran detained over anti-government Facebook posts be released from a state psychiatric hospital because authorities had no grounds to detain him, Catie Beck of CBS 6 News reports.


  45. Restless says:

    Perhaps Geraldine from the old “Flip Wilson Show” sums it up best:
    “What you see is what you get!”

  46. Ummah Gummah says:


    Make way for Max Headroom!


  47. Libtard says:

    While explaining his approach to the economy, Obama suddenly drew a blank.

  48. True Blue says:

    During a recent campaign speech, team Obama suffers traumatic Halo failure.

  49. Ummah Gummah says:


    Love the closeness of the prompter.. noone can see me do this teensee weensie little line..


  50. Libtard says:

    “Most voters look at me as a blank slate. I still don’t understand why…”

  51. Ummah Gummah says:


    Wheeeee…. I can do blow in public!! Right in front of this crowd!! The media will never report it because to do so would be racist!!!


  52. Libtard says:

    “This dang teleprompter just went racist!”

  53. Libtard says:

  55. Libtard says:

    “Okay everybody…we’re all going FORWARD. Now I want everybody here to put one of these on their heads and follow me!”

  56. Logic Mine says:

    The NEW and IMPROVED Obama in the early stages of construction!

  57. Libtard says:

    Obama flaps his hand to conduct as he sings:

    “I am a Square, a lovely Square,
    I have four sides, they’re all the same.
    I have Four corners, Four lovely corners,
    I am a Square, that is my name.”

    “…alright now..everybody…!”

  58. ~Argus says:

    “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

    “The Audacity of Hope”

  59. Libtard says:

    Unfortunately, BO decides that the best way to illustrate the Republican block of his policies, was to wear one.

    A radical Muslim demonstrates a new device which allows one to preview the outcome of his upcoming decapitation ceremony. Currently available only in Islamic Third World countries, the manufacturer has plans to make it widely available in the U.S. sometime shortly after the first of the year.

  66. Matt says:

    “Uh…Could you speed this thing up a bit?”

  67. Louie says:

    Muslim scientists today announced a new medical imaging technology that allows doctors to view the inner workings of a person’s mind in real time. Completely non-invasive, it is thought that this technology will likely be a tremendous breakthrough in the treatment of a myriad of heretofore debilitating mental illnesses, among them profound narcissism, Superman complex, inability to speak truthfully, acute fiscal irresponsibility and severe entitlement mentality.

  68. Louie says:

    OK, boys and girls. Now, pretend that it’s just after the election. Draw in what you think Mr. Obama will feel like then. Extra credit will be given for the creative use of bodily secretions.

    It’s time for the SpongeBarry Firepants Show!

  96. Jack Bauer says:

Comes complete with the classic hollow head, or snap on, interchangable telepromter screen-head accessory, for those times when you want to play with a more true-to-life version.

    The teleprompter responds to President Obama’s transparency.

  112. Alphamail says:

    First to Louie @1:50pm RE: Medical imaging.

    Rewritten: A new breakthrough in medical imaging now allows the internal content of the human brain to be recorded in full and displayed on a new square ion-scanning screen. The pictured device is relating no verifiable brain activity.

    Second…Argus, Ummah, and TUP:

    In the president’s own words, no less… in the dickens did he know Dave was going to have this caption contest.

    Way to go Argus.

    Asked if he had any ideas for how to fix the economy Obama replied; “I’m drawing a blank.”

  114. FrankHD says:

    Now thats what I call a SPAM blocker!

  115. Alphamail says:

    Thank you Dave (w/thots from Bob R.) for these great caption contests.

    They draw everyone together, encourage creativity, keep the ugly trolls at bay (ie, the subspecies: Pathetica Incitatus Vomiti), and show just how many people actually view the site but don’t normally comment.
