Bad Analogies

So I receive an e-mail with the following message:

Subject: myth breaker

Member of the house of Representatives, Charles Rangel, (D-N.Y.), who is black, when asked on public TV about President Bush, replied: "Well, I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all.". . . .

My only response is that Charles Rangel's use of anecdotal evidence to try to prove or disprove racial superiority is nothing more than the pot calling the kettle . . . . Uh, maybe that isn't the best analogy.

If you know any equally bad analogy, simile or metaphor, please share in the comments.

Rangel was confused; as confused as a kitten sleeping in a washbasket that suddenly finds itself on the receiving end of the spin cycle.
