The Devil’s Budget

Satan in Paradise Lost by Gustav Dore

Strict father,  nurturant parent, casino capitalism? the devil’s budget? America’s soul? or even the narcotic of government dependency.  I have started collecting a list of political mataphors.

There is just so much to think about. The issues of Randian influence and Paul Ryan’s apparent duplicity have distracted me from this piece that I intended to post right after
the George Lakoff video introducing the use of family metaphors as a way to understand the political parties.

Lakoff and co-author Glenn Smith continue using metaphors in this passionate discussion  Romney, Ryan, and the Devil’s Budget: Will America Keep Its Soul?  

There is much more to see on this HuffPo site… you probably won’t like it all, but it may open some windows and you won’t be bored.
