Republicans Through History

It is amongst them that the cattle are found which walk backwards as they graze. The reason for this curious habit is provided by the formation of their horns, which bend forwards and downwards; this prevents them from moving forwards in the ordinary way, for, if they tried to do so, their horns would stick in the ground.

The hole-men, or troglodytes, eat snakes and lizards and other reptiles and speak a language like no other, but squeak like bats.

—Herodotus, The Histories

    Very fine. At last an explanation for the Rethugs. They are troglodytes, people who “speak a language like no other, but squeak like bats.”

      Also the horns, which, any time they attempt to go forward, causes them to get stuck. So, they just go backwards.

    oh, you two once again leave me in the dust with your knowledge of this weird world and its bizarre creatures. All I can do is read and agree — and marvel that someone is keeping watch for me. Namaste. xoxox

      Come now. There must be hole-men who squeak like bats, where you live. ; )

      Sally, like bluenred says those hole-men are everywhere. Unless maybe you live on Venus. 🙂

        It is a little-known True Science Fact that a portion of the skin of Venus was at some unknown time partially transplanted to that area of Arizona centering around the Superstition Mountains.

        That is why it is commonly 160 degrees there in the summer, and why no one can actually approach and enter these mountains, as they are not really there, being mostly on Venus.

        And in this area, there are many, many hole-men. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is currently their Leader.

          Word, Science Man. Hole-men and heat. Two good reasons to avoid Arizona. And knowing it originates on another planet makes real sense now. Maybe the state name should change to Arizonus instead of Aribama.
