THE ELEPHANT AND THE DONKEY

News Item:  The Democrats (symbol:  donkey) received a drubbing at the hands of
the Republicans (symbol:  elephant) in the midterm election last Tuesday.

Let the trumpets sound! calls the elephant raising his trunk, joined by others of his
ilk.  We have won!

Listen you big ungainly mastodon, you should have been extinct a long time ago.  
After all, who sports a hooter like yours in the animal kingdom?  Imagine a writhing
snake for a nose!  At least, we are sprightly, quick to turn, fleet of foot ...

Quick to turn alright!  Plus offend the sensibilities of anyone with sensitive hearing.  
Hee! Haw!  Is that a way to communicate?  Who is going to prefer an ass over a
majestic elephant?

You mean an elephant having the effrontery to propose smaller is better ...

Listen ass, count yourself lucky.  We elephants have long memories.  I remember the
John Kennedy years when you really were a Jack-ass.  Not satisfied with the Bay of
Pigs, you almost killed us all with the Cuban confrontation ... which (despite the PR)
you came out of by removing our installed missiles in Turkey in exchange, when the
Russians never had anything installed in Cuba in the first place.  And then the start
of the Vietnam war ...

Hey, don't talk to me about war.  Who got us into the trillion dollar Iraq mess with lies
...

Forget it!  The voters have spoken ...
