Notes on Metaphors

If I was Rep. Chris Van Hollen, and I was commenting on Coakley's loss, I'd have chosen a slightly different metaphor when blasting the prior Administration, given who's Senate seat was just replaced.
President George W. Bush and House Republicans drove our economy into a ditch and tried to run away from the accident. President Obama and congressional Democrats have been focused repairing the damage to our economy.
Also, props to Rep. Barney Frank who's right about last night's vote. If more of Congress acted like grown-ups and didn't seek advantage at every turn (and yes, I'm talking to Republicans too) maybe. . . oh who the hell am I kidding.
