Today, in bungled metaphors

Regardless where you find yourself on the political scale, you ought to recognize this as the kind of moronic quote you get from politicians who don’t follow sports closely, but try to act like they do.

Touchback!

    Well, at least he didn’t say something like punt the ball for a home run. 8)

  5. In fairness, it’s possible that Molly didn’t hear correctly and added the “n.” It could have been “put” and then the sentence makes sense not withstanding that the “end zone” is really after both houses deal with it and its ready to be signed into law.

    Reince does talk like he’s had 4 martinis and a mouthful of marbles.

    I would be happy to accept a six figure salary to become their staff sports metaphor consultant.

    LOL! Now that’s funny. My first thought was it was probably a typo where “put” was meant instead of “punt”. Still funny though.

    Corrected quote: “The president stepped up and helped PUNCH the ball into the end zone.”

    So, possibly a misquote from a journalist who doesn’t follow sports closely.

    Once I was emerging from the GOP cloakroom after going in through the out door. That’s not the only thing that’s been punched in there. Now watch this drive.

    Don’t worry Senator. I’m sure when the leftists take over for good in this country you will be able to walk away from your blog because there really won’t be anything else to talk about regarding college football… with all the concussions and labor regulations you know. And if you are implying that the left in this country is more knowledgeable about football than the right then you are too far gone to debate. But hey… if you can utilize a coed in your attempt to reclaim the metaphoric football domain then knock yourself out.

    Just when I thought we were making progress.

    • I just thought the quote was stupid.

      I didn’t realize that football knowledge has a political bent. The things I learn here.

        And my response was too. Apologize. But I did see where the reporter misquoted him… evidently everybody ran with it to make him look bad. More fake news.

      It would help if the word “leftist” didn’t keep growing to include the likes of John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, preexisting conditions, the Pope, etc. All disciples of Mao and Stalin, amiright?
