trying to understand politics is like... well, no metaphors work becaues they just end up being confusing. like untangling a necklace thats been sitting in a pile of other necklaces for a year, with a blindfold on. blindfold on you, not the necklace.

i like the untangling a necklace metaphor. what if there was also a blindfold on the necklace? and you were in the dark. and there was a light in the room, but a blindfold was on it.

and also what if you were blind? and the lightbulb was broken, and you had a new one, but you couldn't reach the light fixture to change it? and then you found a ladder, but it had blindfolds stretched across the rungs so you couldn't step on it because you would slip in the blindfolds? ok.

and then you finally did put the lightbulb in, even though you fell three times and you regained your sight on one of the falls but then lost it on the next one, and you flicked on the switch, which you had to find by groping in the dark, but then the electricity bill hadnt been paid so the lights were turned off anyway.

the best part would be is if it was during the day so there was sunlight streaming in the window the whole time but you didnt know because youre blind.
