Which One Would You Trust?

A few days ago, I saw the viral picture of the now famous dog ‘Tonik,’ who looks like he has a human face.

“That’s real news!” (As proclaimed by Ralphie’s father in the movie ‘A Christmas Story,’ refering to a newspaper article about a man who swallowed a yo-yo.)

Disturbingly, it seems as if this dog has gotten more attention from the main stream media than, let’s say,  N.J. Senator Bob Menendez’s scummy  jet-setting junkets to the Dominican Republic.

Anyway, to me, Tonik bears an unfortunate resemblance to the Left’s fuzzy-faced freak-a-zoid economist, Paul Krugman.


Separated at birth?

You decide..

Pelosi: 'We Avow the First Amendment' Because 'People Have a Right to a Gun'
Dan Rather: Bush AWOL Documents 'Not Proven' False

    One of these is scruffy, looks almost human and probably has fleas and a preference for eating its own feces. The other is a dog.

  • Tonik – He has the sorrowful look of a alpha dog that allowed his kibbles to be collected for good of the pack, didn’t exercise his rightful canine bite, and wound up as the omega dog with helpless pups of his own and no future for them….and knows that is what he did. He is now wise, if only we would listen….

    Great picture of Krugman. The dull-eyed, blank expression on his face explains a lot about his ideas and writing. The dog doesn’t look human to me but than, in that picture neither does Krugman.

    Too much time up Barry’s butt leads to oxygen deprivation.

    ha ha Right Krugman.

    I am reminded of “The Island of Dr Moreau.”

      The original or the remake?

      The remake with Brando and Val Kilmer was an absolute train wreck, but there were many unintentionally hilarious parts.

      That tiny guy who plays a piano duet with Brando was priceless.

    Why do you want to slander dogs like this??? For shame!

  • Paul Hooson

    Reminds me of the story of a angry wife who keeps complaining to a psychiatrist that “my husband thinks he’s a dog”. But, the pills the doctor prescribe don’t work. The wife complains again, but the new pills don’t work either. Finally, the wife calls the doctor a third time, but is very tearful this time. “I think I killed my husband”, she tearfully says. The doctor says, “Oh no, how did this happen?”, The wife explains, “Well, I didn’t see him when I backed up the car in the driveway, and he was licking himself”.

    Which one is Krugman?

    If this economist thing doesn’t work out, I’m sure Krugman could always enter the Westminster in the “non-working group”.

    Here’s another dog that’s better than Krugman:


    Banana Joe won Westminster last night.

    Almost 20 hours later, not one word on Wizbang about the SOTU?

    Thayer wouldn’t have let this much time elapse.

    • jim_m

      If there were anything that was sincere in it I am sure that someone would say something. As it is the media is more interested in Rubio taking a drink of water to bother commenting on the speech by your lord and savior.

    • Shawn

      For Christ’s sake, Bruce..

      To address the obvious: This was posted way before the SOTU. If you are that bothered, send your complaints to [email protected] .

      As per Thayer (i.e. Jay Tea), he was a great blogger. He was the main attraction here.

      The truth is, he completely abandoned this place.

      He gave no warning. He left Wizbang, his fellow bloggers, and every reader who took the interest in following him.

      He supposedly had financial issues. MANY of his fellow writers at Wizbang (Including me) sent him financial assistance, with no questions asked and no expectation of re-payment.
      All attempts to reach him since have been left unanswered.
      He was a huge part of this place, but, don’t make him sound like he would be some savior.

        It was supposed to be a gentle poke, not a complaint. Didn’t mean to touch a nerve.

        I remember the lurid cover art on a paperback copy of “The Island of Dr Moreau” I had back in the 60s. It showed the Dog/Man creature holding in his arms an unconscious damsel who was rather scantily clad. The creature had a face much like Tonik’s, only more anguished. And with larger canine teeth.

    • We were a little concerned about the possible consequences of that whopper of a lie:

      Nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime.


      • Vagabond661

        In a way, it was the truth. It won’t go up by a single dime. It is and will be oh so much more than a single dime.

        Your link doesn’t work.

        • It works, but it’s picky about who it will work for…

          • Brucehenry

            Yeah, it gives me an Error 403 “forbidden” message. Of course, it takes a real genius to post a link one knows won’t work. Good job.

    I’d club the puppy to death IF it would rid us of Krugman and his ilk! LOL

  • fustian24

    Let’s be honest here. They’re both butt-ugly…

  • Brett Buck

    One has basic common sense survival skills. The other is Paul Krugman
