Time to present another Mixed Metaphor Award. This go around the award goes to Barack Obama staffer Mika Brzezinski:
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Well, but you can’t argue that the Clinton campaign didn’t do some serious damage in light of the Wright stuff and the bitter comments–
SCARBOROUGH: That wasn’t the Clinton campaign.
BRZEZINSKI: They pounced on it like lemmings.
SCARBOROUGH: That wasn’t the Clinton campaign–
BRZEZINSKI: Oh, please.
SCARBOROUGH: And I don’t know if lemmings actually pounce. I think lemmings go over cliffs.
