Obama Roberts Do-Over

Remember this (last) famous Obama-Roberts re-do?  Our winner of the caption contest after the healthcare decision: “High five.”

…Or else, there’s always this one.

    I don’t trust Roberts at all. But I’m really, really glad he decided to let me keep my daughter on my health insurance policy for the next six years.

    So, thanks, Mr. Roberts. Nice of you to show some heart.

    I hadn’t seen the  “this one”.  That’s a very dynamic picture!
