    for this sad diary.

    We need to hang this around the Republican's necks like that dead chicken Molly Ivins talked about in her story.

    Some people think you cannot break a dog that has got in the habit of killin' chickens, but my friend John Henry always claimed you could. He said the way to do it is to take one of the chickens the dog has killed and wire the thing around the dog's neck, good and strong. And leave it there until that dead chicken stinks so bad that no other dog or person will even go near that poor beast. Thing'll smell so bad the dog won't be able to stand himself. You leave it on there until the last little bit of flesh rots and falls off, and that dog won't kill chickens again.

    •  I tried that once. (0+ / 0-)

      It failed. Said dog was murdering groundhogs at 3 months of age and then hiding same until they got disgustingly ripe and then dined on them. The chicken didn't faze her in the least, not the stench, nor the weight of it, nor the way she had to walk splay footed to keep tripping on the entrails.
