Thank You, Small Section of This Country That I Temporarily Cared About

You KNOW every politician is thinking this in the back of their mind at every campaign rally.

Joe Biden might actually say it someday.

A Moment With Joe Biden: History

[by Son of Bob]

And now, a moment with Joe Biden…

BIDEN: …but if we’re gonna win this election and keep this country on the right track we need to win here in Ohio. We need to keep this historic president in the White House for one more term. And, how fitting to be here in the Sunshine State to campaign for the re-election of this country’s first black president. Ya know, back in the days of the Civil War, Ohio played such an important role in ending slavery. It was Ohio that first stood up to the Union general, General Eisenhower, and said, “No more. No more. No longer will we tolerate this inhumanity.” And, they launched the Tet Offensive and forced Eisenhower’s troops back across the Tallahassee River and out of Ohio, handing him his first major defeat of the war. And, that battle, the Battle of the Bulge, was a turning point in the war, and set the path to end slavery in America…

This has been a moment with Joe Biden.

This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with [High Praise! to Karl]:

Sorry, nothing obscure this week. No prize 🙁

#1: When creating lolbama! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.
