King of Mixed Metaphors

Phil Musser, former executive director of the Republican Governors’ Association, is quoted in the paper today saying this:

“If you look at the curveballs that governors have to deal with on the fly, it’s really where the rubber meets the road.”

Now, any fool can see that this one of the problems with the Republican party.  (Not to say that every republican is stupid, but that stupid people are almost always republicans.)  Republicans seem to have difficulty with English, while at the same time becoming vitriolic about anyone who doesn’t speak it.

Since when, I ask you, are fly balls curveballs?  Correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve been a baseball fan since I was 6 years old and I think I know the difference between a pitch and a hit.  Apparently Phil doesn’t.  And worse yet, he it equates it with tires.  This guy must be the king of mixed metaphors.  Baseball and tires.  Does he listen to himself?  What am I saying?  Of course he doesn’t.  It’s a frequent mishap of conservatives, I have found.  Gibberish comes out of their mouths and they don’t even know it.

Spewing nonsense seems to be what the people like in their leaders, though.  They vote for these fools.  Look at Donald Trump, leading in the polls ahead of all the others in the republican clown car.  He should be careful what he spouts from his yap so he doesn’t find himself up a creek without a leg to stand on.
