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 #395: Tyranny of the Majority (Leader)

It's bad enough that Harry Reid is a slanderous jerk, as he is demonstrating by again making a baseless accusation against those who don't see things his way; this time, he's calumniating Americans for Prosperity as having hired actors to tell invented stories about their suffering because of ObamaCareless.  Reid is not alone in maligning anyone who makes the Democratic Party look bad, but he also abuses his position as US Senate Majority Leader by refusing to bring bills to the floor for a vote if he simply doesn't want them to become law.  It is long past the time for this congressional disgrace to be relegated to the status of Minority Leader (as well as for his being ousted from public office altogether!); the voters muffed their chance in 2012, but perhaps they'll get it right in this year's elections.
