"cat stranglers"
Having been called names, one looks back at one's own angry outbursts over
the years, and I recall having once referred to Republicans as "hairy-backed
swamp developers, fundamentalist bullies, freelance racists, hobby cops,
sweatshop tycoons, line jumpers, marsupial moms and aluminum-siding
salesmen, misanthropic frat boys, ninja dittoheads, shrieking midgets, tax
cheats, cheese merchants, cat stranglers, pill pushers, nihilists in golf
pants, backed-up Baptists, the grand pooh-bahs of Percodan, mouth breathers,
testosterone junkies and brownshirts in pinstripes."

I look at those words now, and "cat stranglers" seems excessive to me.
The number of cat stranglers in the ranks of the Republican Party is surely
low, and that reference was hurtful to Republicans and to cat owners. I feel
sheepish about it.

GARRISON KEILLOR

a rabbit punch with a smile. Punch away.
