Dr. Zero - The Chimera

Right on target and with some really spiffy metaphors, as usual:

"In Greek mythology, the Chimera was a monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail. The term has come to be synonymous with nightmares and illusions. Modern America is infested with these monsters, and politicians are very dedicated to fighting them… with swords forged from billions of tax dollars, and shields woven from the dessicated remains of your shriveled liberties.

The proponents of Big Government programs frequently excuse their waste and inefficiency by hinting at the terrible things that would have happened, if they had not taken expensive action. The recent stimulus bill, a fountain of pork-barrel waste and theft, is defended in these terms."
