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.

Miscellaneous Musing #47

Despite the fact that its subject matter is political, this posting is a miscellaneous meditation rather than an uncommon commentary, since I am not making an argument but merely speculating about an hypothetical scenario that has interested me for some time now.  (I'm not saying that this will happen, but don't think that it can't.)
If Romney should win in November, but by so small a margin that the incumbent President could dispute the election, might Obama refuse to relinquish power?  Would it matter if Romney's victory were upheld by the Supreme Court, a body for which Obama evidently has no particular respect?  And if this did come to pass, what would consequently ensue?—Would Congress react as the Honduran legislature dealt with Zelaya, deposing the President and ordering the army to arrest him?
