Did Coyote ever catch Road Runner?

Yes!



I think this works as a political allegory, by the way. But for what?

He did catch the roadrunner once but it ended very badly.

Two ways to unhappiness:

Not getting what you want.
Getting what you want.

You beat me. Any situation where the phrase, "You've got him right where he wants you", works nicely.

More and more, this administration is looking as if they hung a sign on the White House saying, "Acme Products Co.".

Something about so diminishing yourself en route to attaining what you've always sought that you can't handle it?

political allegory: you always wanted the bright, articulate, law professor, man of the world guy to have the power .... but you didn't really know what you wanted him to do with it.

Bush violating the civil rights of political dissenters, Bush starting two illegal wars in order to increase the Haliburton stock price, Bush stealing two elections, Bush destroying the economy, Bush spending us into the ground, or Bush's tax cuts for the rich destroying the little guy. Take your pick.

@brian: doesn't that tinfoil hat you wear get heavy sometimes?

@lewsar: It must, because that one has to be made of lead, not tinfoil.

@ lewsar and Howard

Brian doesn't really believe all that crap. But he's been taught that repeating it over and over again wherever he can will create Myth.

And it works. Because it would take a paragraph to refute each of his ridiculous accusations, but few peeps have the attention span for it.
