Metaphor of the Week


“We are going to be a dog to the Frisbee on this issue.” – Michigan Congressman Fred Upton

This from a George Will article this past weekend about things Congressman Upton will try to stop or reverse as he takes over the chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  The quote is in reference to his loathing of the Net Neutrality regulation passed by the FCC last month.  You may recall that I had an opinion on that.

The Will article is worth reading, if for nothing else, because the author is a verbal scythe.

    It means he is going to go get that regulation, bring it back, then drool, jump up and down, and bark until he convinces the FCC to regulate again. Then repeat.

    I don’t get it.
