Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ sowed fertile ground, generating many top quality entries. The winners each attacked the focus (or lack thereof) of the photo in a unique way. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) (background) the ranking democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, takes a picture at the start of the testimony of witnesses on Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's Senate confirmation hearings as Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) listens on Capitol Hill in Washington January 12, 2006. Alito completed his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday after frustrated Democrats took a final crack at getting more definitive answers from the 55-year-old conservative.
