Completing the metaphor

The Game’s Not Over, Clinton Backers Agree – New York Times:

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York stood in center court, with basketball hoops on all sides, as she offered up a sporting metaphor.

“You know, we are in the fourth quarter and it is a close contest. We are running up and down. We are taking shots,” Mrs. Clinton said, speaking over a crescendo of applause.

In this game, Obama’s up 70-48. For those of you who don’t follow basketball, that’s a pretty freaking big fourth quarter lead.

It’s the end of the third quarter and a horn is blowing at a basketball court near the White House…

Give the gift of words.
