Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller for March 06, 2007
The political zoology field guide. Today's specimen: the Meandering Panda (lackus convictionus). Identifying characteristics: the markings on this unscrupulous beast make it difficult to tell just which end you're dealing with and whether it's coming or going. This, couple with a lack of principles, allows it to take any position that will gain the favor of any other group of political animals. It will then devour everything the group has to offer, and move on to adopt the agenda of another group. Habitat: everywhere. Natural enemy: scrutiny.
