mimiles and setaphors

Ooh errr. Thanks Ric Keller, or as our buddies must call you, R-Flay, for the most inept figurative language ever (from that snarky fellow at the Post):

"Fortunately, Ric Keller (R-Fla.) was on hand to restore gravity to the debate. He spoke about lawn care as a metaphor for Iraq:

'Imagine your next-door neighbor refuses to mow his lawn and the weeds are all the way up to his waist. You decide you are going to mow his lawn for him every single week. The neighbor never says thank you, he hates you, and sometimes he takes out a gun and shoots at you. Under these circumstances, do you keep mowing his lawn forever?'"

Wow. Things are so much clearer to me now.
