As I've always said, not all Republicans are dogs, but all dogs are Republicans. Wishing for nothing more than what they already have, dogs are conservative by nature. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's sort of touching.
But our puppy Charlie, I'm afraid, might actually be a Tea Partier.
He believes in very limited government. He acknowledges that of course the government needs to provide free food and water. But he definitely believes the government should not tell him what to chew on and where to poop.
When he thinks of books at all, it's not about reading them, but destroying them.
When he's angry, he barks. When he's scared, he barks. When he's sad, he barks. When he's happy he barks. And the only responsible thing to do when he barks, is ignore him in hopes he'll eventually stop and concern himself with something else.
I'll be glad when this election season is over, won't you?
