Lessons from a fat chihuahua

Chihuahua and DemocratMy chihuahua’s name is Zuzu. Zuzu is fat. Zuzu is fat and happy.

I am about to begin an extremely extended metaphor- so bear with me!

My chihuahua is much like our nation at this point in time. The mind is concerned with instant gratification rather than long-term wellbeing (Yes, you, W!), the body is large and somewhat inactive (like our nation due to obesity and job loss) and the legs are tiny, skinny and shaky with the effort it takes to hold up the extra girth, much like the instability of our economy.

Continuing the metaphor, Zuzu, like our president, just takes a nap (metaphorically) in response to the Chinese government’s crackdown on peaceful Tibetan protesters. I mean, come ON, Zuzu! Start petitioning! Her inaction only enables their tyranny.

Maybe W. would care more about the Tibetans’ plight if there were oil in Tibet… Just as Zuzu would care more if she knew a biscuit was waiting for her there.

I should apologize to my little rolly-polly chihuahua for comparing her to our current government/the Bush administration. She’s probably an illegal immigrant, anyway, so she’s most likely a Democrat.
