Comments: Dowd Inexpertly Slaughters and Guts a Metaphor

"If it appears that Dowd was starting to make a comparison between our President and a caribou before boring herself with the subject by the end of the paragraph"...

Actually I was wondering the word, "boring" should've been "boning" instead?

I mean this is Dowd who does have that track record of doing herself in with her own words...:-)

The donkey that waited pliantly in the cross hairs is doomed to become stew for Palin and an allegory for politics. The idiotic jackass standing around, dithering rather than charging at his foes or trying to cap the well, is Obambi. Even with the public aimed at him, he's trying to be the most socialistic/marxist mammal in the scene, mammalian socialist, and rise above what he sees as empty distinctions between the classes so that we can all serve him at a higher level of being.
Palin's father advises her to warm up her trigger finger(there are many democRATS out there). And trigger-happy Sarah represents the Republicans, who have spent two years taking shots at the president, including potshots, and tormenting him in an effort to bring Lord obambi down.

The Republicans think they have hurt their quarry on the tax-cut deal, making him look weaker and at odds with his party. There's an argument to be made for what the president did, but he doesn’t look good doing it,or at much else.

When all the DemoNcRATS are complaining and all the Republicans are happy, it just THE START OF US TAKING BACK OUR COUNTRY...THE GOOD OL' USA!!

Maureen Dowd's prose makes me want to find whomever taught her to write and smack the crap out of them. She butchered that metaphor like a starving man with a dull knife. The idea that Obama is akin to a caribou (essentially a cold climate cow with antlers, no more intelligent than any other ruminant mammal) does have a certain delicious amusement about it, though I'm pretty sure that's not what Dowd intended.
