Gail at Scribal Terror observed that watching politicans in action is like having to sit through a particular bad experience. For example:
Watching Hillary Clinton is like getting yelled at by the gym teacher for not dressing out.
Watching Fred Thompson is like being smacked on the butt by a gregarious uncle.
Watching Mike Huckabee is like saying the word "huckabee" over and over.
Watching Rudy Giuliani is like being waltzed around the dance floor of a crumbling Venetian ballroom by an aging gigolo with a comb-over. Or going to bed with Niccolo Machiavelli and waking up with Thomas Hobbes.
