Donkeys in a Nutshell

Dave Barry’s political humor, like the rest of his humor, is always hilarious and often true as well, which is just one of many reasons why news that his weekly columns won’t be returning is too bad. Barry’s a libertarian, which explains why he’s able to consistently target both sides of the partisan aisle. Anyway, there’s one line in the first segment of his 2005 in review column (which has plenty of laughs at Bush’s expense as well) that captures the Democrats in a nutshell:
