I've seen several folks comment on the bizarre extension of the metaphor here.
Okay, you use the trite expression, and then have done.
But no. Mr. Biden has to waterboard the metaphor until it confesses.
“The proof of the pudding is in the eating,” Mr. Biden said in an interview Wednesday. “The Bush-Cheney relationship hasn’t tasted very good. Not a single person you can name for me” — at this point, he leaned forward in his chair, jabbed his finger in the air and punctuated his words sharply. “Look at me, now — a single one can tell you that the pudding has tasted good. Not one. Name me one serious person, liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican.”
Icky-oo. Don't bring me some Cheney pudding, don't bring me some Cheney pudding, don't bring me some Cheney pudding, don't bring me some here.
