Science has discovered that caterpillars essentially talk with their butts. That would certainly be an exact DNA match with Congress. Apparently these creatures—the caterpillars, not Congress—scrape their rear ends on leaf surfaces to establish their territory. Sort of like when the republicans took over the House in the last election.
It seems there’s a difference by age. The old farts don’t scrape, they just push their opponents around. Does that remind you of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell? But here’s a surprise. The young upstarts aren’t aggressive. Looks like even the caterpillar doesn’t want to be associated with the Tea Party. These little critters are also pests which fits the profile of most Republicans.
A caterpillar is also on its way to being a beautiful thing…a butterfly. You couldn’t attach that conversion to either side of the congressional aisle. They also turn into moths that are naturally attracted to flame which would remind one of the suicidal tendencies of the GOP House that places partisan ideology over the good of the country and the American people. These slinky insects also have poor vision, another perfect match with the Republican conservatives.
I could go on forever. Some caterpillars are targets of animal predators, but have learned to defend themselves with devious means. The point is that we have a dysfunctional Congress, including Democrats and Republicans, that would rather argue between themselves rather than putting the U.S. on the road to recovery. The GOP has been out to get President Obama from the day he took office, and they may very well succeed if he doesn’t stand firm on progressive issues.
