“This is like giving you a bowl of doggie doo, put a cherry on top and call it a chocolate sundae.”
This was Speaker Pelosi’s response last year to a Republican plan to temporarily fund the CHIP program. Usually, we expect the language from our government officials to be just a bit more…tasteful? Not the sort of analogy you expect to hear from the Speaker’s podium. But beyond the analogy itself, she had to call it “doggie doo”? If you’re bold enough to talk about eating it, surely you can be bold enough to at least use an adult word for it.
