Sequestration and lion-taming

By The Bakersfield Californian

It must be a sweet position in life to be able to remain unaffected by one's own decisions, as is with sequestration. Our elected elite seem to have no problem putting citizens in a constant position of being in between a rock and a hard place with their un-American partisanship. They just don't seem to care.

A humorous analogy comes to mind along the lines of circus lion-taming. In the real world, if a lion-tamer makes a bad decision, he becomes lion food; in American politics, when the lion-tamers make bad decisions, the lions eat the spectators. It's not as if they're trying to pull a screaming monkey through a glazed doughnut hole without knocking off any of the frosting, for heaven's sake. Lord help us.
