Caption contest: Emerson and Solberg

I haven't had a caption contest in what seems like forever. But with the news that both David Emerson and Monte Solberg are leaving the Harper government, this picture is just dying for captions.

And on Monte, I'm genuinely sad to see him go. Partisan disagreements aside, he seemed like a pretty good guy, a sincere guy, and a competent minister that did his job diligently. In opposition, he was a solid, capable opposition performer that caught my eye as a student on the hill in the late 90s, and an early pioneer of political blogging in Canada. He's still a young guy so it's odd to see him leave, particularly given it's a fairly safe seat. Still, I wish him well.

Anyway, caption away!

The moment Harper turns his back, we make a break for it.
