Chuck Asay sure does love the ‘Ant and Grasshopper’ parable. It lets him call large swathes of people lazy moochers without actually calling them ‘lazy.’
Though this cartoon actually does work. The ants are rich, white heterosexuals and the grasshoppers and bees and whatever other insects are in the background make up the diverse coalition that reelected Barack Obama and will continue to make up a larger and larger portion of America. As Republicans and Fox News ignore them, they ensure their own losses in future elections.
Also: Obama’s supporters actually liked him and reveled in his success, while Romney’s supporters were dour and subdued. Clear difference in voter enthusiasm.
