    THE PECKING PARTY HAS BEGUN!!!

    •"The flock gets sight of a spot of blood on some chicken and they all go to peckin' at it, see, till they rip the chicken to shreds, blood and bones and feathers. But usually a couple of the flock gets spotted in the fracas, then it's their turn. And a few more gets spots and gets pecked to death, and more and more. Oh, a peckin' party can wipe out the whole flock in a matter of a few hours, buddy, I seen it. A mighty awesome sight. The only way to prevent it—with chickens—is to clip blinders on them. So's they can't see."

    •  You never keep two chickens in a small coop (4+ / 0-)

      or one will peck the other to death.  When it comes to chicken metaphors, I wonder a little bit about Boehner and Cantor.  One voted for, the other against.  Cantor has also been very vocal about no Sandy relief without spending offsets... Boehner seems more reasonable.  If I were to ascribe truly machiavellian intent, I'd say that Cantor pressured Boehner not to move on Sandy relief allegedly out of concern over spending, but more likely to make him appear even weaker in public.

        those voters in VA see that Cantor is being an A$$hole on the Sandy relief - and when VA Beach gets ripped to shreds in the next hurricane - the see his hypocrisy.  

        Well, it is a nice thought anyways.
