I’m Rubber and You’re Glue

The Democrats attempts to ‘bork’ Judge Kavanaugh has added a new metaphor to the political lexicon – Getting a Dose of Kavanaugh.  It’s a mashup of “Getting a dose of your own medicine” and “I’m rubber and you’re glue, your words bounce off me and stick to you.”  Michael Ramirez paints the picture….so to speak.

And nothing in this week’s often partisan-squabbling, protest-interrupted spectacle has changed the likely outcome: a party-line vote in favor of Kavanaugh’s elevation to the high court.
