Worst Analogy Ever

CREDIT:

Over the long weekend, Emily and I got into a dispute about who had the most knowledge of Dune trivia, so it was like a gift from heaven when Chris Bowers plopped this terrible analogy down:

In order to win the nomination, a non-Clinton candidate needs to be something of a Democratic Kwisatz Haderach who can tap into something so deep inside the collective Democratic unconscious that he can trasmute our rank and file’s version of the water of life in a way that a Bene Gesserit like Clinton simply cannot.

I seriously doubt that this will help anyone’s understanding of the race. It’s too bad, too, because it comes at the end of a very informative discussion of “hard” and “soft” supporters.
