swallowtails, monarchs, primaries
There was an article earlier this week, "Barrage of Attack Ads Threatens to Undermine Donald Trump," which stated,

Another wrote in,

I noticed a headline today on BBC News which reads, "Do butterflies hold the answer to life's mysteries?"

It's possible this would make more sense than some of the phenomena assailing our consciousness from the political sector ...
