Oh the Metaphor Stretching…


I often will catch Christian preaching insane stretches with their metaphors and they cause me to cringe because I am a fellow preacher and seeing one of us crash and burn is painful.  I was just reading an article over at CNN today, however, and I have now seen the crowning jewel of non-sensical metaphors:

Tropical Storms Biden and Palin made landfall in the Sunshine State. The impact? Over the last two weeks, Barack Obama has been gaining support in Florida.”
