Liberalism with woodchuck characteristics

By Al Schumann on Monday July 5, 2010 04:35 PM

Tom Tomorrow's cartoon explains it.

It's an apt choice. From Wikipedia,

Groundhogs raised in captivity can be socialized relatively easily; however, their aggressive nature can pose problems. Doug Schwartz, a zookeeper and groundhog trainer at the Staten Island Zoo, has been quoted as saying "They’re known for their aggression, so you’re starting from a hard place. [Their] natural impulse is to kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out. You have to work to produce the sweet and cuddly."

That cartoon is a thing of beauty. I may start crying.

Al Schumann:

The woodchuck looks a bit like Matt Yglesias. I wonder if that's intentional.


How many schmucks must a woodchuck suck to be a good schmuck-sucking fuck?

Read the comments section on that cartoon to find out.

Al Schumann:

Sean, you've done me a big favor. Your excellent limerick has driven the hoary standard version out my head.

Al Schumann:

Thanks. Lambert. It is a real addy, and I've already dived in to a gardening thread.


the woodchuck seems delightfully impish to me

nice to have something to rage at that
enjoys your fury

these smugster liberals
seem to enjoy only the implications "about them "
embedded beneath their brand choices

of course a completely nihilistic soul
doesn't wear brand black
she tears even at her own soul
with an uncontrolable loathing

ps the sensible liberal comments at TT
come in enough different flavors
and express so many contradictory memes
to suggest virtual tumor tissue at work

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
