[T]he stallion is drunk on his own rhetoric. Why not? It's great rhetoric.Fabulous metaphors, Erica. I understood right away about talking horse that gets drunk and breaks its leg. I couldn't find that episode of "Mr. Ed," but here he is in his home state of Hawaii:
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....
So let's stop talking about race and gender and let the beaver and the stallion both serve our country — in their own inimitable ways.
(Thanks to reader_iam for pointing me to this goofy HuffPo rant.)
