A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Martha Rosenberg

It is probably not accurate to call an industry that gasses males at birth and females at 18 months "humane" but California's recently passed Proposition 2 will make egg farms in California more humane.

Despite the $9 million agribusiness spent to defeat the initiative -- which bans file cabinet size wire battery cages holding 4-7 hens unable to walk, fully stretch their wings, and perch and veal and gestation crates -- and despite a racist, "egg immigration" scare, more votes were cast for Prop 2 than 11 other propositions and even for Obama.

Seems when Californians looked at undercover videos of prolapsed, cannibalized hens on California farms, they didn't see the "science based" system the egg industry touts. When they viewed bloody, insect covered eggs, they did not see a "wholesome product."

Yes We Did -- Editorial Cartoon by Andrew Wahl

A BuzzFlash reader, Sarah, sent this photo of the charming Democratic headquarters in Kennebunk, Maine - a lovely New England town bordering Bush Country: Kennebunkport. The Kennebunk and Kennebunkport Democratic Committees work closely together and joined forces to raise the money for the 2008 Kennebunk Headquarters.

Over the past 8 years, we've come to admire the plucky Democrats in the ancestral summer mansion home of the Bush family. They've protested Bush and his policies in a dignified yet visible manner.

The choice -- Editorial Cartoon by Andrew Wahl

Yes, it's too good to be true. No Photoshopping necessary. There is John McCain sticking out his tongue as the candidates came on stage in Wednesday night's debate at Hofstra University.

What an awkward moment, but on Caption This, our attitude is to take what happens and run with it.

So why does McCain have his tongue out? Upset at Bob Schieffer even before the debate started? Is it time for Halloween?

Delve into your mind to tell us what McCain has in his mind. What is he saying?
