Crooks and Liars has a link to comedian Rush Limbaugh’s rant on how riled up the wingers are about the Libby verdict. In some bastardization of the “waking a sleeping giant” metaphor, he likened it to “poking the bear”.
Wait a minute, didn’t Libby write a book?
At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest. Groups of men paid to watch.
Good Lord, now we’ve done it. At least he warned us.
