Senator Max Baucus (D-MT):
“It’s just so wonderful to hear him speak, it’s like a symphony”
Yeah… that’s ONE analogy. Let’s try some more.
Listening to Obama speak is like…
… that eternally long half-second between when you realize you’re going to hit the car in front of you, and the first musical tinklings of glass & metal.
… accidentally hitting “delete”, then accidentally hitting “yes” on the “are you sure?” dialog box.
… pouring milk on your cereal and watching earwigs float to the top.
… passing an exit, rounding a curve, and joining a 12-mile traffic jam.
… fumbling for a light switch and finding a wall socket
… hearing that creaking, ripping sound a tree branch makes as it separates from the trunk prior to coming through your roof.
… a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced..
… noticing the empty toilet paper roll before standing up instead of before sitting down.
… dropping a butcher knife, but keeping it from hitting the floor with a deftly-executed blade-first catch.
… hearing that awful tearing sound that inevitably accompanies stuffing 10 pounds of arrogant into a 5 pound bag.
… watching the First Lady serve soup to homeless people while wearing $540 shoes.
… listening to something with angry German facial hair… not sure what, exactly…
What’s it like for you?
