Telling Metaphor Watch

Not since someone in the Bush administration thought of calling the Iraq invasion "Operation Iraqi Liberation" (OIL) has there been a more unintentionally hilarious metaphor for all that is wrong with this presidency than Colin Powell "dropping the ball" in Times Square on New Year's Eve. It rings a lot more true than his pathetic attempt to suggest that he made a difference as the "reluctant warrior" during Bush's first term. In fact, the ball-drop metaphor is so blatant that you almost have to believe that Karl Rove set him up.

Many thanks to my friend Jeff for bringing this to my attention.
