a: Constitution/statists ~
b: holy water/ vampires
What: "The Constitution to liberals, Democrats, Statists and the TSA is like holy water, the cross or garlic to vampires, like silver bullets to werewolves, like water to the wicked witch, like sobriety to W. C. Fields, it terrifies and angers them!" Nice stream of analogy. Also see his comments that politicians are like bananas.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
