GOP Vulture

 (Limbaughcus cheneyotrious)  

This relatively rare avian is occasionally spotted in Minnesota as it migrates (one might even say, "roves") south to Alabama and Mississippi from Idaho's mountains.   Shown here in its Fall plumage, this rather awkward-looking high-flier often wears sport jackets to disguise its badly withered right wing.  In Winter it sports a feathering sometimes compared to 1970s leisure suits.   Its prey is the unsuspecting "low information" voter.
