a: Arguing with a good lobbyist ~
b: trying to hold a snake coated in Astroglide

What: "Arguing with a good lobbyist is like trying to hold a snake coated in Astroglide-it feels slightly gross, and you'll never get a decent grip on it before it slips away. I could never pin down why I felt crappy before he'd convince me that I didn't really have any reason to."
