'John Boehner is like a Republican state senator. He's a golf-playing, cigarette-smoking, country-club Republican, who's there to make deals. He is very familiar to me.'
"John Boehner is like a preschool teacher who can't control his class, so he's letting the class eat Play-Doh, despite the fact that eating Play-Doh is going to make them sick, and he can't do anything about it."
"John Boehner is like Senator Geary from The Godfather Part II. The Family has something on him. They have something so huge that he would be utterly destroyed if it ever came out. So, like Senator Geary, Johnny boy is playing along, doing the Family's bidding in order to keep from having his life ruined."
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.
