Ain't Nothin' Worse Than Getting Metaphorically Shot In the Face
"Today, as White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan picked buckshot out of his own hide..."
"The Scott McClellan briefing was truly something to behold. The guy is still picking buckshot out of his backside."
"As neither President Bush nor Cheney spoke publicly about the accident yesterday, it fell to White House spokesman Scott McClellan to suffer the media equivalent of birdshot."
The thing about the "media equivalent of birdshot" is it's much less likely to necessitate immediate medical attention and exploratory surgery. But, uh, other than that, great metaphor, guys.
