The Silence of the Lambs… and Sheep… and Bulls… and Chickens… and…

President-Elect Obama has said that turning the world around will require a certain amount of sacrifice, and he wasn’t kidding. If you’re an animal, the election of Barack Obama as president has so far turned out to your worst nightmare since spending a weekend at Manor Farm with Mr. Jones.

It’s getting so bad that formerly free-range animals are checking themselves into zoos just for protection.

Just look at the most recent horror:

Residents of a mainly Kurdish village in southeastern Turkey have sacrificed 44 sheep to celebrate the election of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States.

They’d better be careful. too many sheep are taken out, the Democrats won’t be able to retain their Congressional majority in 2012 and complete the ritualistic sacrifice of the United States of America.

And that isn’t all. Near the day of Obama’s election, there was what Time Magazine called an “election day bloodbath” in Kenya. I’d like to be able to say that’s a bunch of bull — and it was. So much for the peaceful transfer of power.

Among the other creatures not clucking over Obama’s election are chickens, goats, more bulls and even a bear in North Carolina.

Tell me again — which candidate did the Humane Society endorse?
