Comparing that poor creature to Giuliani is not fair, not ferret all. And Giuliani is wealthy; impose a tax on him, not a taxonomy.

Thanks for the Walcott link. If I could rake muck like Josh Marshall, assemble an argument like Glenn Greenwald, and write like James Wolcott, I’d be a happy man. I don’t ask for much, do I? 🙂

Which one would you like as a pet?

I can’t believe that anyone can’t hate ferrets the way Giuliani does. They has been used for rodent control by people for about 3000 years. Did all of the rats in NYC disappear, or just move into the mayor’s office?

I noticed after posting that there is a family resemblance.

Ferrets are cute. Rudy is not.

Rudy wants to eliminate ferrets. Rudy is not as sane as a ferret, nor does he have the morals of a ferret.

Comparing the two is – of course – an insult to ferrets the world over.

There is a certain family resemblance around the mouth, the beady eyes, really the ears are similar, truthfully you can understand why they are in the same genus.

I don’t care what his supporters say… Rudy is no genus.

(Whatever this frame of mind is, I hope I get over it soon.)

Well, their other option was “homo” and that freaked them out.
