Friday afternoon palate cleanser: Just an owl, petting a dog

Neither this owl nor this dog care that the president has threatened to veto legislation that would require him to take action on the Keystone XL pipeline — the one measure up for debate at the moment that would actually create jobs.
Neither this owl nor this dog care that Republicans have actually put forward a proposal to extend a payroll tax cut, even though the payroll tax cut was and is tremendously stupid policy. (Again, it exacerbates the problems with Social Security and does little to boost the economy.)
Neither this owl nor this dog care that Barack Obama delivered a painfully populist speech in Kansas earlier this week or that Mitt Romney ignored the conservative new media at a recent campaign appearance.
Nope. The owl is just an owl. Petting a dog.
And the dog, well, his look of content says it all.
