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.
