Block Those Metaphors

"We have two great candidates--one a hard working, never give up eager beaver, and one an inspiring, heart-leapingly brilliant stallion... The stallion makes heart-stopping speeches. And the beaver just beavers along. And the stallion is drunk on his own rhetoric. Why not? It's great rhetoric. We need beavers and we need stallions. Beavers get the work done. Stallions inspire us. And they both have limitations. Stallions have fragile legs (think Barbaro). And beavers are nothing without their teeth," - Erica Jong.
