George Will: Metaphor Thief

When one Googles "Palin Bubble", The Chuck's article that was posted on Friday floats to the top. So color us cynical when we see conservative stalwart and This Week fixture, George Will make reference this morning to the "Palin Bubble" and carries it off as his own invention. The background chortling by George Stephanopoulos makes it that much more irritating in the fact that The Chuck brought this metaphor home, tied it up in a succinct package and now other people are not only mentioning it but trying to sell it as their own.

Then again, this has got to be in there somewhere with imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.
