Legislators do not merely mix metaphors, they are the Waring

blenders of metaphors, the Cuisinarts of the field. By the

time you let the head of the camel into the tent, opening a

loophole big enough to drive a truck through, you may have

thrown the baby out with the bathwater by putting a Band-Aid

on an open wound, and then you have to turn over the first

rock in order to find a sacred cow.
