Dogs on Telly!

Last weekend our ma ape abandoned us to go to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear which was INSANE because what inspires sanity and/or fear more than US? Hmmm? Well, we knew she'd made a horrible error because this clearly was a rally meant for
us to usher in the Era of the Dog, in which we would finally rule over all the beasts with an iron paw. Instead, she forgot us and it ushered in the Era of the Rat. Or the turtle.

This week we got CONFIRMATION of the error from a very interesting source, Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA! How could this segment of Tip of the Hat (the third one, not the feeling-up one or the gay Bert one) NOT be directed at us?

And then we saw this lil' story about Jon Stewart and pit boos! Remember THIS?

"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?" Stewart answered: "One is unfairly maligned despite evidence showing they are no worse than any other dogs, while the other is an an artificial demographic no better or worse than any other kind of mom."

Sanity Restored!

We so wish we could say that all is right with the world -- but remember where we live. Fear is a sign of sanity!!

We're with Jake & Just Harry. All is sadly not right with the world. We're new to the dog blog world and don't want to screw this up by letting mama get all political and getting us banned or something, but your last two posts just flicked mama's switch. The politicians have been working since the 1960's, and in overdrive since the 1980's, to divide this nation into two groups that detest each other, that prefer gridlock to compromise, and that would rather see the country fail than see any part of the other group's agenda succeed. They finally seem to have dragged the majority of citizens along on this suicidal ride. We joke about Puddles' kool-aid, but this is the real poison. So the marriage has failed. Divorce is the inevitable next step. The "kids" [the uncommitted Independents] are old enough to choose which group they want to go with [or leave home and start their own country]. My question is: how do we divide up the propery? It's not like there's an east-west or north-south divide. There may be "Red" states and "Blue" states, but even Texas has liberals and New York has conservatives. How do we split into two coherent countries that can actually function in a very dangerous world? Mass migrations such as those that followed the partition of India & Pakistan, Israel & Palestine? That worked well. We sure can't keep going on the way we are now, wanting nothing more than to destroy each other in the pretense of "saving" the "real" America. The Roman Empire didn't think it could ever fall apart, either. Who knew all those civil wars every time a new emperor was "elected" would actually weaken the state so much that collapse was inevitable? We've now got a lot of extremists in power who are playing with gasoline-soaked torches and they're burning down our house.

The above rant was brought to you entirely by our mama, and we disavow any responsibility for her actions. Can we have the monkey ball toy now? Please don't expel us.

Mama cannot figure out how to erase her previous post. But she extends her deepest apologies to Otis, Otis' pack, and Otis' mom for the inappropriate hijacking of Otis' blog to vent on politics. We told her not to do it, but would she listen...? Bad mama!

No worries guys! You gotta let the apes vent or they might EXPLODE! Or worse, forget to feed us our dinner while they are furiously typing! Hey, do you guys have a blog?

Sheps w/Pep, Otis & Edgrr.

Otis et al, thanks for being so tolerant! Wish there were more of that going about. Nope, we don't have a blog. Mama is most aged, which is her excuse for being so technologically inept. Personally, we think she'd be just as inept if she were several decades younger, but don't tell her we said so. She feeds us, as you so astutely pointed out.
