Begging for snarky captions

Two-fer!  Sen. Kerry's apparently in a great mood this week, despite his head cold.

Reuters' caption: 'Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry walks to an ice cream shop in New York City during an unscheduled walk before retiring to his hotel for the night, September 20, 2004.'

The camera just loves this guy, doesn't it?

Reuters' caption:  'Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry gives two thumbs for a supporter after a town hall meeting in West Palm Beach, Florida September 22, 2004.'

Bonus points if you can write one snarky caption that fits both pix, but don't let that inhibit your creativity in coming up with separate ones.

For Kerry's theatrical performance, Kerry and Kerry gives Kerry two thumbs up!

"Its a different show, each and every time you see it"

"I didn't think I'd like it, but then I saw it"

"With so many twists and turns, plus the suprise ending, how couldn't you be enthralled?"

"Don't you know who they are?"

For a limited engagment only, of course.

"I love Broadway. Teresa was great again in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff?" I give her 2 thumbs up."

"Or was it Teresa as Lady McBeth? I can't remember!"

"Forget lipgloss and all that other theatrical makeup for those public appearances-- Bag Balm is the best product on the market. Not only great for my incredible lips, just look what it's done for my thumbs! I can slip out of/into any position now!"

Top Pic while responding to reporters on a question on how he stands on Iraq; "Why.. yes, I have definitely taken 5 count em’ 5 totally different and conflicting positions on it today, yesss!”

Same reporter asks him how he decides vital matters concerning how to deal with the terrorist or in fact any other question, ie: “do you support the US troops”. He proudly displays his decision thumbs, (left for yes, right for no. but…. being forgetful on which is which, he lifts them up simultaneously)

(I must apologize in advance and acknowledge that I expect this to be deleted...but much to my surprise and horror, it practically wrote itself! If it helps excuse me in any way, I am a gay American.)

"What has two thumbs, stays fit, is well-groomed, loves Broadway theatricals, enjoys traveling and spending time with his new partner John, adores his band of seamen brothers, and can always be counted on to come from behind?

This guy!"

Top Pic: At tonight's performance, John Kerry will be playing the role of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs...

Bottom Pic: If things go well in November, I'll be showing the voters my O-face.

My fellow Americans, French, Irish, Pol Pot, whomever,I would love to pontificate my war hero status, debate both sides of all issues I never took a stand on, orate all the insignificant thoughts I ever had or ever will have, but I hear the call to duty, and I, the perennial winter soldier, am reporting for duty, but I digress, mother Teresa instructs I will receive a big cookie if I don't soil my depends. Mommy may I have a second oreo?

Presidential hopeful John Kerry today demonstrated two of Teresa's alternatives to the "Shocker", and how they affected him.

Found by the roadway recently was a man who had new policy statements loaded through a slot in his head. The technique used circa 1972 IBM punchcards to outline his new policies.
