JOKES AND ANALOGIES
START TO FLY
I was only slightly ahead of the curve yesterday in noting an echo of O.J. Simpson in President Obama’s promise to ferret out malefactors in the IRS. Today the conservative Washington Examiner draws a parallel with Claude Rains’ characterization of the immortal Captain Renault in “Casablanca” who was “shocked, shocked” to discover gambling going on at Rick’s Café.
“Your winnings, sir.”
The analogies will be coming — to play on the name of another scandal — fast and furious now.
