Mr Fish Toon: The Lady Killer

Elizabeth Warren a liberal lioness with sharp claws

By Joan Vennochi

IN ANOTHER ERA, Elizabeth Warren might be heralded — even by foes — as the “liberal lioness of the Senate.” In these tough political times, she’s called a “hyperpartisan bully.”

That’s exactly what Democrats need.

Warren earned the honor by taking on the biggest bully of all — Donald Trump, the maestro of odious insult who is now president-elect. As Trump ascends to the Oval Office and Warren seeks a second term as senator from Massachusetts, she’s pledging to carry on the fight for a progressive agenda and “stand up to the Trump administration’s racism, sexism, bigotry, and hate.”

In Massachusetts, that cause should sound familiar. It echoes the battle waged by Senator Edward M. Kennedy during his long tenure in Washington, including after Republicans won a majority in both houses of Congress in 1994. As chronicled in the book “Lion of the Senate,” by Nick Littlefield and David Nexon, Kennedy rallied demoralized Democrats to help defeat Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America. That’s putting it politely. When it came to protecting programs relating to education, the environment, and abortion rights, Kennedy bellowed his outrage.

The terrorist is us: Americans commit more than one mass shooting every day

On Earth Day 1970, comic strip character Pogo famously paraphrased Admiral Perry. “We have met the enemy and he is us,” read the little possum’s word balloon as he stood sickened, shamed and bewildered, holding a trash bag amid the incomprehensible human garbage in the once-happy forest.

On Friday, we all watched sickened, shamed and bewildered — again — holding nothing but useless prayers amid the incomprehensible human carnage that was the once-happy vacation airport in Fort Lauderdale.

We have met the terrorist and he is us.

Yes, we are our own terrorists, killing each other in record numbers that keep climbing.
