Spitzer smile freezes as sharp-tongued Schumer slaps Rangel

If ever there were a photograph that deserves a caption contest, it's this one from a NYT story headlined "Spitzer Visits Capitol Hill With Long List." (The subhead should, I believe, say something about "naughty and nice" and "checking it twice.")

Spitzerschumer

The NYT's actual caption is much, much more boring than the photo: "Eliot Spitzer, New York's governor-elect, middle, met with Representative Charles Rangel, right, and Senator Charles Schumer, at a breakfast with the New York congressional delegation."

I'm sure you can do better. Comments are open.

I don't have a caption but Spitzer and Schumer look like mirror images to me. Spitzer has on his gleeful angel face and Schumer - with his pointed tongue and nose - is a caricature of the devil. Or maybe it's the other way around.

What's with the display of tongue? Inquiring minds want to know!

"Schumer and Spitzer make an offer Rangel can't refuse."

Never trust men whose smiles disfigure their faces.

New York's pasty politicos, with a gleam in the eyes and on their foreheads, taunt the House Rep. for having more hair on his cheeks than the two have on their heads.
