Metaphor of the Day

, , , ,

The Obamacare disaster has commentators this morning casting around for new metaphors. The Titanic, The Hindenburg, the Challenger… have all been used.

So far, Tom Maguire’s commenters are winning by hitting on the image juste for the always-histrionic, but now sooo futile Nancy Pelosi: Norma Desmond from “Sunset Boulevard” (1950).

This was a Democrat trap or dirty trick. They made this walk intentionally in front of a large gathering of Tea Party people in the hopes they could push them into saying or doing something they could use to tarnish them. It didn’t work! So they slunk back through the underground passage to the other building and made the walk again. This time too it didn’t work but the more experienced victomoligist in the group detected some “spittle” from the mouth of a tea party person from 10 feet away so he walked over to get in his face about it. Then the magic occurred and his cat-like hearing picked up the N word not once, not twice but numerous times from the Tea Party crowd. They had their “incident”. Of course the dozen or so cameras and microphones never picked it up. Somehow that magic “N” word that would have made all Tea Party people rabid racist never seemed to happen. Did that congressman lie? Had he lied before? Wasn’t his whole life and reputation a lie?

After that the Democrats got so much smarter. If the Tea Party refused to be goaded into being racist they would plant some of their operatives in Tea Party gatherings who would shout out that magic word when they were sure a microphone would pick it up so it would be on every news show. Then Juan Williams could claim every night that the Tea Party was racist. The Democrats, party of the KKK, slavery and lynching still using racism for fun and profit.

Mais le meilleur contributeur de cette édition 2013 reste s?rement l’Allemand Tony Martin. Lors du contre-la-montre par équipes, à Nice, il commit l’impair de rouler avec un vélo portant un liseré de champion de contre-la-montre… individuel. ?Cette marque appartient à l’UCI?, souligne Tortajada. Martin a d? débourser 2 000 francs suisses. Record à battre.

“Jangan nak perasan. Tengok rumahnya berkunci, siap ada mangga lagi.” Kata Mikael tiba-tiba apabila dia perasan akan kelakuan Luna yang asyik memerhati sejak tadi. “Suka hati kita lah nak tengok ke apa. Sibuk aja,” balas Luna. Mikael tahu Luna sangat meminati lelaki itu. Mikael tahu Luna sangat gembira ketika bas melintas di hadapan rumah unik itu. Dan Mikael berjanji, dia akan berusaha sedaya-upaya untuk membina rumah seperti itu, lalu mengundang perasaan cemburu Luna, suatu hari nanti.


Most voters say Romney’s personal wealth – estimated by the candidate to be at least $190 million – and his experience as the head of the private equity firm Bain Capital will not impact their vote. Seventy-three percent say Romney’s wealth will make no difference to their vote, while 60 percent say his Bain experience will not impact their vote.
