Palin’s Full-Court Press Metaphor, Diagrammed

7 Jul

Tommy Craiggs at Deadspin knows no fear, diagramming what may have been the most tortured metaphor in Palin’s resignation speech last Friday:

“Let me go back to a comfortable analogy for me – sports… basketball. I use it because you’re naïve if you don’t see the national full-court press picking away right now: A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket… and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN. And I’m doing that – keeping our eye on the ball that represents sound priorities – smaller government, energy independence, national security, freedom! And I know when it’s time to pass the ball – for victory.”
