Giant Burmese Pythons
The nominees for Worst Metaphor are:
- The Race Card - Tossing racially charged rhetoric around is just like playing cards!
- Giant Burmese Pythons - Mexicans, Cubans, and other Latin Americans are Giant Snakes.
- Marketing Barack - Barack Obama is a breakfast cereal offering Hope 'N Change. John McCain, by contrast, offers voters Fruit 'n Fiber.
- Photoshop Missle Defense - Comparing SDI to Photoshop fakery seems like a fairly accurate assessment. Which is why I am sure I must have misunderstod Mallard's intent.
- Chinese Makeover - China's human rights and environmental record is funny...when you compare it to an old lady getting her hair done.
