Abuse of metaphor: Dennis Miller on just about everything 

You will certainly spend seven minutes today doing something less entertaining than watching Dennis Miller's recent rant on The Factor. According to Fausta, some lefties have their panties in a bunch over that last Barney Frank joke. No surprise there. Even O'Reilly looks a little uncomfortable.

I have heard, by the way, Miller's explanation for Sarah Palin's unpopularity among some women before, but only from women who are willing to admit they have a thing for the First Dude. No man -- other than Miller, apparently -- has the courage to climb out on that ledge.

Barney does like it rough.

He often goes down to visit the inmates in DC jail as well.

That might have been Miller's best appearance ever. Start to finish I was in stitches. From "...after you Zorro'ed his shirt" and "...Leave it to the Germans to concoct a intricate glossary of pain terminology" to "...Maybe Barney wants to go to jail" It was a hilarious rant.

Plus, his analysis of the female hate for Sarah Palin is one I have made myself. Much kudos to him for saying it. While there is legitimate areas to criticize Palin I always thought most of the female hatred was based in exactly what Miller described — Snobbish and sexless women who despise the fact a woman in position of power with five kids could be in such great shape, happy, still turning mens heads and look like she was having good sex. My girlfriends initial reaction to her was "Women are going to hate her with a passion." Boy was she ever right. Palin's story should have been one of great success but instead was turned into a feeding frenzy that the media, who have now officially "beclowned" themselves, should be forever embarrassed about.

Lost in the terrific humor was Miller's reaction to Obama's election which in many ways mirrors what I have heard so far on talk radio and seen in the blogosphere. That Republicans should not, and will not, exhibit the same absolute derangement display with Obama that democrats showed with George Bush. We disagree with Obama and his policies but he is the president not some all encompassing embodiment of evil as many on the loony, and not so loony, left have made our current president out to be.

Oh brother. Are you guys still flaming that old canard? News alert gentlemen: The majority of women are not living sexless lives, and if some of them are, it most likely is because of their impudent mates. You guys really need to get [it] out more or stop projecting your own home life.

An odd qualification, but if polled, I would choose a leader who was able to "get some" versus one that couldn't.
