Metaphors Gone Wild

9:30 AM -- Kathleen Parker blogging for the once-reputable Washington Post, undoubtedly means this in the good sense:

    If Bill Clinton was our first black president, as Toni Morrison once proclaimed, then Barack Obama may be our first woman president.
An inarguable proposition, really. I might add in the same spirit that, if Harry Truman was our first velociraptor president, then Eisenhower was our first dual-quad intake manifold president.

But the Mistress of Metaphor is not done:

    Obama is a chatterbox who makes Alan Alda look like Genghis Khan.
Me? I make Vic Damone look like the Comte de Rochambeau.

Kathleen Parker is like the Dorothy Parker of the blog generation.

She should not be set lightly aside. She should be hurled with great force.
