Add metaphors to the list of things at which Republicans really, really suck:
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, a frontrunner to win the GOP nomination against Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE), compared poor people to scavenging racoons in a speech this week. […]
“The raccoons figured out the beetles are in the bucket,” Bruning said. “And its like grapes in a jar. The raccoons – they’re not stupid, they’re gonna do the easy way if we make it easy for them. Just like welfare recipients all across America. If we don’t send them to work, they’re gonna take the easy route.”
No. I have no idea what that means either. Apparently, raccoons need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, get their own damn bucket of beetles and stop eating Bruning’s jarred grapes.
