about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #256: Mrs. Romney Actually Holds Two Jobs, i.e., Wife and Mother

I'd like to ask a few questions of Dumbocratic Party strategist Hilary Rosen, who insulted Mrs. Mitt Romney as "never having worked a day in her life":
Doesn't managing a household and raising (in Ann Romney's case) five children qualify as "working"? (I'll bet that millions of housewives think so.)
Does your statement mean that the Demagogic Party is doing what its propagandists accuse the Republicans of doing, viz., waging war versus (non-professional) women?
Since you're indulging your psychological aberration and risking the mental health of two members of a future generation by raising twins with a "partner" of your own sex, who are you to get self-righteous about anyone else's domestic arrangement?
Why should the spouse of someone as affluent as Mitt Romney seek paid employment, thus taking a position away from someone who might need the money?  Have you never wondered how many men (or single mothers) cannot provide for their families because they've been out-competed in the job market by females whose paychecks merely supplement those of their husbands?  (See Uncommon Commentary #88.)
Lastly, why did you find it necessary to add "in her life" to your comment?  Have you ever heard of a woman working a day outside her lifespan?
