    I would vote for a political party with a badger as its icon.

      Badgers? Badgers!!!???? We don’t need no stinking Badgers!

      (thx and a hat tip to Weird Al, it’s funnier if you don’t know the famous line is a misquote from Treasure of the Sierra Madre)

  2. Various members of the weasel family should be assigned randomly to all political parties.

    Benjamin Franklin thought that the turkey was more representative of America than the eagle. Imagine how different things would be today if the founders had followed his advice…The Philadelphia Turkeys…Hotel California by The Turkeys…”Tranquility Base here, the Turkey has landed”…

  4. And in all this melee, the occupiers are trying to occupy the Democratic Party and the Republicans are trying to co-opt the tea partiers. There seems to be no hint of third or fourth parties on the horizon.

      No George, there aren’t any “white horse” parties yet, but there sure are a lot of people jumping ship from the Big Two labels. Nathan Fletcher of San Diego and Abel Maldonato come to mind. The GOP seems to take downsizing seriously. Look for some Dems to follow when they run out of excuses for California’s lousy economy.

      Politics’ etymology is poly (many) ticks (bloodsucking insects). Tick Men is an appropriate cartoon representation of the two currently dominant parties. One red, one blue.

      • All depends on whether the Ticktockmen hit a vein or an artery. Being totally ignorant of the life sciences I have no idea what colors are associated with which type of blood aqueduct. Thus bringing up another deep philosophical question from the shallow end of the IQ pool, “which came first, the egg or the oviduct?”
