As Pooh once said, "You never can tell with bees."

"Hooray!" you shouted.
"Isn't that fine?" shouted Winnie-the-Pooh down to you.
"What do I look like?"
"You look like a Bear holding on to a balloon," you said.
"Not-" said Pooh anxiously, "- not like a small black cloud in a blue sky?"
"Not very much."
"Ah well, perhaps from up here it looks different. And, as I say, you never can tell with bees."
There was no wind to blow him nearer to the tree, so there he stayed. He could see the honey, he could smell the honey, but he couldn't quite reach the honey. After a little while he called down to you.
"Christopher Robin!" he said in a loud whisper.

"Hallo!"
"I think the bees suspect something!"
"What sort of thing?"
" I don't know. But something tells me that they're suspicious!"
"Perhaps they think that you're after their honey."
"It may be that. You never can tell with bees."

Not quite "Dewey Beats Truman," but close enough.

I'm not confident I am understanding the juxtaposition of photo and text. I am thinking that the bees are the voters and that they suspected the Dems were after their honey (money).

I think there are several ways to take it (including your way Perpetua!). This was a major surprise on so many levels - but one thing we do know, you never can tell with bees - or voters.

Brown is another example of someone who is already being considered as Presidential material. What about vetting? What about experience? What about paying your dues? What kind of a nation have we become that people can rise to stardom so fast. It is "American Idol The Reality Series". Stardom is not leadership and Obama, Palin and Brown are examples of folks who needed more seasoning. Why can't we consider someone like Colin Powell or Robert Gates?
