Matt Whitaker: Congressional Chew Toy

As I watch today's hearings, I'm reminded of nothing so much as the time I was at a dog park, and one of the dog moms tossed a nice big rope chew to her shepherd mix.

The dog caught, grabbed, chomped, chewed. Another dog came up and grabbed the other end. Lively bout of tug-of-war.

Second dog came a way with the toy, tossed it in the air, caught it, tossed it again, and a third dog nipped in, grabbed the toy, ran a good way away, crouched with it between his forepaws and began to chew the crap out of it.

Dog one made a dive for it, and while dog three was barking and play-bowing with dog one, dog four grabbed the toy.

Dog two wasn't quite done and made a grab and another tug-of-war tussle ensued.

Dog four emerged triumphant and trotted back to its dog dad with the toy: "Throw it, Dad, throw it!"

Dog dad glanced at the original dog mom, who was laughing her ass off, took a good windup, threw the toy, and dog four was on it even before it hit the ground.

Dog four raced around with the toy, and then dropped it and raced off to do something else.

That was dog two's chance, but dog two wasn't fast enough to outrun dog FIVE, who was already there, chewing like crazy.

I had to leave at that point, but I admit I wonder what kind of shape that chew toy was in by the time the first dog mom collected it and her dog(s) and left...

reminiscently,
Bright

2. When you're at the dog park, take care not to step in a pile of Collins. nt
