Elmer Fudd vs Coyote

February 8, 2012

I don’t envy conservatives who have to choose between Newt and Mitt.  I was posting on another blog tonight and hit on the notion that choosing between them is like having to choose between Warner Brothers antagonists Elmer Fudd and Coyote.

Now don’t get me wrong, both Elmer and Coyote have some endearing qualities, but ultimately, Fudd never gets Bugs Bunny and Coyote never catches the Roadrunner.

Take Elmer,

Elmer Fudd
Newt

He makes good use of known method.  He is a dogged hunter but has no staying power because he is not very smart and always misses his prey by a misstep or two.

 

Then you have Coyote.

CoyoteHe has yards of faith and inches of food.  Mitt

He is a simple humble genius who can architect the most epic methods of falling flat and far behind the Roadrunner.  Everytime he comes close to the roadrunner, something blows up in his face or an elaborate trap backfires.

 

 

 

 

Oh, yeah don’t forget.

Sylvester the cat.

Sylvester is always ready to pop that Tweety in his mouth when no one  is looking.

Sylvester ends up taking a wailing from a boxing kangaroo.  Karma is real.

  1. LOVE the analogies! Especially Elmer Fudd and Gingrich.


  2. Actually, looking back at it now, maybe Romney is Sylvester and Santorum is more like Coyote.


  3. Somebody mentioned on DU that Perry was Foghorn Leghorn. Oh yeah!
