Metaphor-inato

News & Politics

If there's a better metaphor for a useless politician it doesn't spring to mind: "California governor Arnold Schwartzenegger has been filling potholes as part of his campaign to improve transportation in his state. Too bad that the pothole he filled had been dug up beforehand so that there would be one to fill: '[resident Nick Porrovecchio, 48] and his business partner, Joe Greco, said that at about 7 a.m. they became fascinated watching 10 city workers standing around for a few hours putting on new vests... But their street, he noted, didn't even have a hole to pave over until Thursday morning: They just dug it out, Porrovecchio said, shrugging. There was a crack. But they dug out the whole road this morning." (ECHIDNE OF THE SNAKES)
