Finalist for the Natural World group: Sandor Zsila’s picture titled ‘Argument’ which shows three Collared Aracari birds on a branch.[EPOTY.ORG / SPECIALISTSTOCK / BARCROFT MEDIA]
Took me a minute to find the third bird, he (or she) is on the left, facing away… as in: I am so not here, guys.
Tho possibly… the one in full open winged display is fending off the one on the right.
Bloggers are so cute when they get all whupset. IIRC Susie Madrak is a sometime Dem consultant. Or whatever the word currently in use is…
Send the slave ship for them, closer to election 2010 and again in 2012, they will climb right on.
The fucking lot of them.

Top Obama adviser David Axelrod got an earful of the liberal blogosphere’s anger [whupset in Aisle 3!! - - Mcat] at the White House moments ago, when a blogger on a conference call directly called out Axelrod over White House criticism of the left, accusing Axelrod of “hippie punching.”
“We’re the girl you’ll take under the bleachers but you won’t be seen with in the light of day,” the blogger, Susan Madrak of Crooks and Liars, pointedly told Axelrod on the call, which was organzied for liberal bloggers and progressive media.
The call seeme to perfectly capture the tense dynamic that exists between the White House and the online and organized left: Though White House advisers in the past have dumped on the left, anonymously and even on the record, Axelrod repeatedly pleaded with the bloggers on the call for help in pumping up the flagging enthusiasm of rank and file Dems.
“You play a great role in informing people about the stakes of elections,” Axelrod told the bloggers. “One of the reasons I was eager to expend time was to enlist you.”
I admit, I had not heard “hippie punching” before.
