Hostages? Guns to our head? Metaphor mania

What do cicadas and doggy odors have to do with the shutdown? CNN's Jeanne Moos reports on the metaphor overload.

    interesting tongue and check response to the current level of language in todays politics.

    But remember the pontification by the Dems after the Gabby Gifford shooting memorials. How it was this vial hateful language that caused it and we need to be more civil when we talk.... President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Ried and preached about it and blamed the Tea Party to every news camera they could find....political grandstanding, hypocritical double standard...you pick!!

    Can someone in the news actually ask questions, and point out areas where politicians say one thing and then do or say something else.... BOTH SIDES...the problem is I only see it pointed out when it meets the news organization or reporters political point of view.
