An analogy you don’t see every day

Ryan Lizza on the most unpopular job in the Bush Administration:

…the White House counterterrorism job is the bureaucratic equivalent of the drummer in Spinal Tap. Bush has now gone through five [er, six] of them since 9/11. (Clinton had one.) Like Spinal Tap’s drummers, who often choked on their own vomit or spontaneously combusted, Bush’s counterterrorism aides all seem to disappear under unusual circumstances.

We have nothing to fear but … um … I’ll get back to you on that.
