TWO YEARS OF METAPHORICAL PURPOSE
Jeff Alworth—who’d earlier declared “the turkey was a plastic fake”—now performs some comical wriggling:
Whether or not the turkey was fake has little bearing on its purpose as metaphor ...
So now the bird is just a metaphor? Better tell that to Kevin Zeese, whose recent column mentioned Alworth’s plastic literary device six times. Republished in the American Chronicle, this howler is added in the very first line of Zeeses’s piece:
Last year President Bush made a surprise visit to the troops in Iraq, put on an Army jacket and served the troops a turkey.
Bush’s visit was in 2003. Meanwhile, fellow turkey-lie repeater Mother Sheehan is upset over alleged media inaccuracies.
