Government of Idioms

Government of Idioms

We elected a flabby fox
to guard the hen house.

That’s like putting a coal
lobbyist in charge of the EPA.

oops. He did that.

That’s like naming an anti-union lawyer
your Secretary of Labor.

Ibid.

That’s like nominating
Al Capone to run the IRS.

And I have no doubt a dead gangster
gets confirmed by this Republican Senate.
