Your choice in November---the Republican or Democrat Pest Control company


So you’ve hired the Republican Pest Control Co. to get rid of your pests, and after 5 years , you’ve still got an infestation. Do you:

A) Reflect on how difficult it is to cure an infestation but vow to persevere in spite of the obvious difficult task ahead and the recognition that there is no end in sight…

or

B) Hire the Democrat Pest Control Co. who’s Yellow Page ad talks about wanting to “use only non-lethal traps so that they can be relocated to the flower beds in front of your home,” and “address the root causes of infestation and change policy so that the pests don’t hate us,” and blames the Republican Pest Control Co. for squandering all the good will that we previously had with the pests and also blames the Republican Pest Company for creating even more pests.

I’ll stick with A).

Nice try, but I'm sure the Iraqi's don't appreciate you calling them pests.

Just to point out the obvious, I lost you in the metaphor....

Anyone else would have read "pests" as "terrorists" but somehow you got it confused with innocent civilian Iraqis...

Just playing, I know you and I will not agree on Iraq.

Yeah, that's a sloppy metaphore. Terrorism isn't anything like a pest-control problem and it's that kind of thinking that just makes the problem worse.
