Best analogy ever? I think it’s a contender, straight from Balloon Juice:
The Republican party in Iowa reminds me of a patient with a terminal disease (Romneyitis) desperately turning to alternative medacine. They’ve cycled through homeopathy (Bachmann), naturopathy (Cain), chelation (Perry) and aromatherapy (Paul). Now they’ve hit the final frontier–urotherapy. I’m glad that I’ve never been so desperately ill that I’ve contemplated drinking my own piss, but I can imagine what it might feel like if I consider the level of desperation needed to vote for Rick Santorum.
I must admit, I laughed out loud when I read the last bit likening Rick Santorum to urine therapy. The only question I have left is: Which candidate is reiki or “energy healing”? It must be Newt Gingrich. Who else is left?
