Make Your Own Metaphors

Turtle with a leech latched onto its…brain? Some people say the Senator from Oligarchy, Mitch McConnell, whose career is based on an infusion of foreign cash, looks like a turtle. I wouldn’t want to insult a turtle with that comparison. But the miserable old cynic sure acts like a leech on democracy… so there’s that.

    Are leeches common around here (I’m not talking about D.C.)? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one.

    Do you know the fate of this turtle? Is the leech taking a ride or harming the turtle’s brain? I hope that the McConnell metaphor, richly deserved, won’t apply to the actual turtle!
