A bedtime story for the Democratic Party

I recently finished reading a collection of Aesop's Fables and thought this tale seemed VERY familiar.

The Wood & the Chopper

A Woodchopper one day went out to the forest and looked around at the Trees.  Then he hung his head and appeared very sad.  The Trees, seeing how miserable he was, said, "What's the matter old man, is there anything we can do to help you?"

"I only want a little piece of wood to make a handle for my axe," said the Chopper.

"Why, that's easy," said the Trees, and they all voted that they should give him a fine piece of strong tough ash to make a handle.

No sooner did the Chopper fit his handle into his axe then he started to chop and hack all around him, cutting down most of the best Trees in the forest.

An old Oak Tree turned around to the Beech Tree and said very sadly, "Well, I suppose we deserve to have this happen to us because we were such fools as to try to please a Chopper."

Moral of the Story: Democrats -- you're the Trees and the Republicans are the Choppers. Stop being such dumbasses and grow a pair.
