Praying Mantis: The New Democratic Symbol

A praying mantis has taken up residence outside my business in Waukee. Every year between my store and my home I usually see about five praying mantises. Until we moved to Waukee, I hardly ever saw them.

I am usually for a general bug holocaust, but I make an exception for praying mantises and spiders. I have named the praying mantis at my work “Ned Lamont” in honor of his primary election victory over Joe Lieberman. I felt it was fitting, considering the Democrats are now eating their own members.
