    Since Teddy Kennedy’s been dead for some time, will they replace Belfry at some point?

    …who is just as dead as Ted Kennedy. Since Belfry is still alive, the question becomes “who best models Belfry in the current Congress?” Gotta be John Boehner. I also have to wonder… if Jeff MacNelly were still with us, would he have a bird modeled on Paul Ryan…?

    Self – interested and able to change the law to suit them.

    Good guess but Belfry still has more brains than Boehner, even if his brains(Belfry’s) are 75% ‘pickled’ ! !

    I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, there, but Belfry is a cartoon character. It is not alive. Neither is Shoe. Neither is Perfesser.
    Of course, Ted Kennedy is not alive, either. But he isn’t a cartoon character – although he may have been a joke while he was alive.

    I’ve been seeing Belfry as Barny Frank, lately. But he sure WAS Tip and Teddy back “in the Day!”

    I think whether Belfry is modeled after Mr. Kennedy or Mr. O’Neill depends on whether you are a Rethugican or a Demoncrat.

    “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.”
    Spoken by that true genius Nancy Pelosi.At least she admitted with that statement that she didn’t read any of it.
    Obama “if you like your plan ,you can keep your plan”was out right lying or didn’t read it either.Either way that statement made him look dumb.He could release his college transcripts or his SAT scores and we would know how he compared to Bill Clinton and George Bush .But don’t look for that to happen .

    If so, he’d have to choose between the Dodo, the Cuckoo, or the S#!t bird…

    A lot to read, which I usually stop after the first sentence…but I read what you said…First of all, it is hard to figure out who to vote for…They all lie…AND some people vote for people by how they look…and that is why this president was voted in…People can only vote for what is put out there…we know we dont have a say so, but it’s nice to pretend…

    Dont think they will dump Belfry…he’s perfect for a politician…right ? People love to comment when he shows up…love reading it all…
