Debt deal analogy overload

leave a comment »

It looks like we may be close to reaching a deal on the debt ceiling! Hooray! Finally the car that we are driving off a cliff for no apparent reason doesn’t need to plunge into the chasm of default (sorry I fell asleep watching Thelma and Louise. Now Gena Davis haunts my nightmares!)

Just a quick update on our on going coverage of stange debt ceiling analogies. We raved about John McCain’s Lord of the Rings references last week, and now I want to give a shout out to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) for saying something equally creative about the debt ceiling to CNN “until (the Congressional Black Caucus sees) the details, we’re going to be extremely non-committed but on the surface it looks like a Satan sandwich.”

I would kill for a satan sandwich right now. Back in the 1920s a “satan sandwich” just meant any sandwich made with “Hebrew” meats like pastrami, but now I’m pretty sure a satan sandwich is filled with godless arugula and prurient sundried tomato spread. I’m not sure where Rep. Cleaver was going with the analogy, but kudos to him for his originality.
