Getting tired of the McConnell-as-turtle memes? Me too. Did you see the story about hagfish, aka slime eels, overturned on a highway in Oregon? Me too. Did you read the link to a blog explaining that slime eels are, shockingly, not invertebrates but rather “degenerate vertebrates”? Did you think, what a perfect way of describing the people who now hold power in the U.S. Congress? Especially the Senate Majority Leader? And perhaps even more so the so-called “Republican moderates” who are waiting for somebody, anybody other than them to kill off the new, even harsher version of the Senate tax-cut/healthcare bill.
