GOP Grizzly Versus Democratic Porcupine. Or Wolverine. Or Honey Badger

Democratic legislative leaders used animal analogies in a news conference Wednesday while asserting they still be a force to reckon with during rule of the new Republican “super majorities.” From Chas Sisk:
“A grizzly bear can take a porcupine out anytime he wants to, but usually he goes around it,” said Rep. Mike Turner, D-Old Hickory, the House Democratic Caucus chairman. “We’re not just going to sit there and roll over, and when something needs to be done for the people of Tennessee, we’re going defend those values and we’re going to defend our position.”
“I like wolverine better than porcupine,” Democratic Leader Craig Fitzhugh, D-Ripley, interjected.
“Well, now honey badger is kind of popular too,” Turner replied.
