metaphorically speaking, the bailout is . . .

Cow Columnist Dana Milbank of the Washington Post covered Monday's debate on the House floor concerning the proposed Wall Street bailout. He noticed that some of the members had rather colorful ways of expressing their opinions on the bill. For example, he described Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) as "downright earthy in his imagery" when the Congressman intoned, "Madam Speaker, this is a huge cow patty with a piece of marshmallow stuck in the middle of it. . . . I'm not going to eat that cow patty."

For other vivid (or bizarre) figures of speech, read the whole column.
