Republicans: The Yappy Purse-Dog Party


We’ve all dealt with these little s***s – the aggressiveness, the noise, the bites on the ankles. And as soon as you raise your hand to shoo them away, they run back to hide behind the skirts of their owners, still barking the while. Said owners then either praise the dog, offer you insincere apologies, or both.

Of course, it isn’t really the dog’s fault- it’s the owner who should get the blame. Good owners make for good dogs, and bad owners make for bad dogs. So it is with dogs and political parties.

The “Republican” party is owned by wingnut ideologues, single-issue primary voters, and money-mad financiers. When you think about it that way, the yapping and ankle-biting activities of Repube Politicos and Pundits make perfect sense. They have been trained (and in some cases, bred) by their owners to get in the way, raise a ruckus, distract, annoy, and cause damage. So that is what they do.

2. I have a yappy ankle-biting Chihuahua.

I have tried all methods to cure her, but nothing works. My only solution is to put her in another room whenever any stranger comes to the door. But I think it is just the nature of Chihuahuas. And she is a Democrat like me, so I don't think politics have anything to do with her yapping behavior.
