Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

DEMSWHITECOATS.JPG It's time to pick a winner in our latest Capitol Alert Caption Contest.

For those who missed the initial entry, this round's shot is the entire Democratic ticket -- gubernatorial nominee Jerry Brown, lieutenant governor nominee Gavin Newsom, attorney general hopeful Kamala Harris, state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, state Controller John Chiang, insurance commissioner nominee Dave Jones and Secretary of State Debra Bowen -- in white coats touring a solar panel plant in Fremont. Watch the video here.

Here are the top entries:

1) "Doctor, doctor! I don't feel a pulse on the Democratic Party!"

2) "I shall call her 'Megenstein.' "

3) "And the autopsy reveals that Steve Poizner's campaign was never really alive to begin with."

4) "Was it really necessary to wear these outfits to get the California Nurses' endorsement?"

5) "And through arthroscopic advances, we enter here and here to surgically remove the taxpayer's wallet."

6) "Hi, I'm Jerry Brown. Please bend over and prepare for me to be governor again."

7) "Obama Care has gotten us all jobs."

8. "So, Doctor, what you are really saying is that California is terminal?"
