Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Monday, 2020.03.30
The Tea Party movement is a political Andromeda Strain to the media, a baffling
outbreak of viral unhappiness which has thus far defied every attempt at
diagnosis. This is unsurprising, since the media has little interest in
listening to what the Tea Party is actually saying. Instead, they attempt to
stuff this remarkable grassroots movement into a variety of scary costumes, so
they can be conveniently dismissed.

Mixed Metaphor Award

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.
