Caption This Photo: Walker Stapleton, Happy At Last

Walker Stapleton, the Republican nominee for governor of Colorado who lost this year’s election by over 10 points, was a candidate who never seemed quite comfortable in his own skin on the campaign trail. It was a running gag during the campaign among Democrats to share the worst possible photos of Stapleton, which was easy because there were so few good photos among dozens of new ones every day.

But with the election over and the pressure finally off Colorado’s dynastic son, you can see the difference in this photo from Stapleton’s post-election holiday in Hawaii:

Seriously, that’s the happiest we’ve ever seen Walker Stapleton. Civilian life is going to be just fine for him.

We approve of the beard, too–hopefully it’s not just a no-shave November thing.

    The Stapler™ could have shaved at least a point off Jared's margin if he had that beard and smile during the campaign.

    When he gets home from vacation, might there be a voice mail message from Donnie offering Staples a cabinet position?

    On vacation, and he's STILL wearing a blazer.
