The police around Tennessee’s state capitol building must have thought a cute dog walking around the grounds posed no threat to democracy. But they were wrong! Poor state Rep. Joanne Favors, a survivor of a “huge dog” that was walking around the capitol plaza, is revealing on the floor of the legislature what sounds to us like a major threat. THAT PLAZA IS THE CITIZENS’ PLAZA. IT IS NOT FOR DOGS. Is a cabal of dogs and perhaps other animals working on a coup d’etat?

Though Favors had threatened to call an attorney, she later said the warning was mostly an exaggeration. “I’m tremendously aware of the companionship of dogs, but I also know that some have mauled babies and others to death,” Favors said, who cited her fear from being attacked by a dog as a child. “My blood pressure shot up, and that was just a normal reaction to fear. If someone had approached you with a gun, you would have experienced the same thing.”

Christ. Those are all very good reasons to be afraid of dogs! Dogs have the ability to KILL HUMAN BEINGS such as A WHOLE BUILDING OF STATE LEGISLATORS and pass through metal detectors just fine because they don’t need guns. They are a tremendous threat to any free society.

On the other hand, maybe this was an isolated incident. Maybe the dog was inhabited by the ghost of Robert Byrd, who always loved hanging around legislative buildings and whose spirit animal, after all, was the dog:
