A (cynical) Metaphor

AZ and I take a lot of walks. Sometimes, if she catches me after I've been reading the news, these walks are punctuated by cynical rants (she is a patient partner, for which I am thankful).

"So this Iraq policy, I think I figured it out! It's like the government decided to make a nice meringue, but instead of looking at the recipe, they just cracked open some eggs on the counter....

"'Oh! Dang, it looks like I needed to separate the whites from the yolks here. Well, I'll just lift these yolks out'

"'Oops! I broke the yolk!'

"'Oh, great! Now the eggs have slid off the countertop onto the floor! Now what should I do?"

AZ was also subjected to a rant about how we really don't want to know how the sausage is made in our capitol, based on this article about the new pension reform plan doing more harm than good after the lobbyists got hold of it...

Eggs? Sausage? Meringue? Can I have breakfast with my political commentary?
