Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller for March 08, 2007
The political zoology. Today's specimen: the couching tiger (perpetuous victimus). Identifying characteristics: the innocent, kitten-like appearance is the most effective camouflage for this malevolent ambush predator. It has the uncanny ability to avoid scrutiny and aggressively hunt its prey by couching every situation to appear that the tiger is the victim. It will continue playing the victim role while devouring its prey. Habitat: deep inside the partisan jungle. Natural enemy: harsh daylight.
