On the left, Domino is casting a long shadow. But not long enough! On the right, you can see a picture of Domino’s faux-sheepskin pod, but that’s not Domino in it. A few days ago we had a changing of the guard. Inkblot jumped up on the couch, stared menacingly at Domino, and bullied her out of the pod, which he promptly took over. It’s been his ever since, even though he doesn’t really fit in it.

But what are you going to do? Inkblot is the alpha cat around here, and I’m not sure yet if Podgate will turn out to be good for his campaign image or not. I suspect he’ll gain ground among the neocon warmonger set and lose ground among women for his retrograde attitude toward gender equality. We won’t know until new polling data is available.
