"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb disputing the outcome."

The Blue Dogs
"Taking Care of Business," by George Rodrigue
The subject of this whimsical little work is the icon under which the soi disant Blue-dog Democrats assemble. Really. From what I understand, they all have at least one of Rodrique's works on their office walls. And I just wanna say, they're doing dogs no favor: "yellow-dog" implied a dog-like loyalty, and fidelity; these 'blue-dogs,' by their behavior, betray an uncharacteristic (for dogs) selfishness.
