When the Beady Eyed Squealers first descended from the skies in their silvery craft, we didn’t know what to think.  We figured civilization as we knew it was over.  But they made it clear they weren’t staying, all we had to do was outlast them.

Turns out their bark was a lot worse than their bite.  They ended up keeping to themselves for the most part.  They took over the convention center and spent all day and night making strange noises.  We figured out they were going through a process to select the new Squealer leader.  After that was over, they would go back to wherever they came from.

All of the TV networks covered them while they were here.  We couldn’t make out all of what they were saying, but by the expressions on their faces, you could tell it was important to them.

It began to look a lot like a big party.  At the end there were balloons and confetti.  It took weeks to clean up the mess after they were gone.  The city engineers had to scout out a location for a new landfill.

This happened years ago in my hometown, but in 2016 the Republican Squealers will hold their convention in Cleveland and the Democrat Squealers will have theirs in Philadelphia.  Watch out!
