A Bull Fighter Goes to Washington

His name was Jaime Bravo, like the famous bullfighter. But he wasn't a matador. This Jaime fought a different kind of bull. He fought the kind that spews from the mouths of politicians.

He fought bull in his own unique way. Every time he found political bull he'd draw a sad or mad face across the offending politician's  poster or sign. Could be anywhere, the golf course clubhouse or city hall. Didn't matter. He was a bullfighter.

One day, however, Jaime Bravo travelled to Washington, DC, to our nation's Capital. Suddenly he was so overwhelmed by all the bull that he had a nervous breakdown. The illustrious career of the esteemed bullfighter was over.

Will anyone rise to take his place?
