Has the sequester scare campaign jumped the seal? Even the Washington Post had to poke fun at its own coverage of the (nominal) effect of scheduled budget cuts on the critters at the National Zoo. Won’t someone think of the kittens? Columnist Rich Galen did.

There’s light at the end of the tunnel.

    Ah, so now it’s the animals that will sequestion suffer?

    What does it say about those who care more about baby seals at the zoo than they do baby humans in the womb?

    As our liberal progressive betters are apparently disgusted by human infants and champion their deaths at every turn…yet fawn and weep over fragile animal babies…

    Dear Left,
    If the sequester doesn’t pass, I’m gonna shove one of these off a cliff.

    And keep in mind…I adore him.

    I don’t even know you.

      I wonder if sloths fall off cliffs as slowly as they climb trees?

    As a former zookeeper, may I note that when the federal government was shut down, keepers at the National Zoo still reported to work, because their jobs are considered essential–the animals have to be fed. So… the zookeepers making 40K a year are so important they have to work even during a government shutdown, but the 150K a year bureaucrats in the Department of Transportation stay home during that same shutdown. Personally, I’d lay off half the DOT and give the zookeepers a raise.
