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.
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.
He has yards of faith and inches of food.
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 ends up taking a wailing from a boxing kangaroo. Karma is real.
