searching for the proper metaphor

He who is without guilt. . . naw!

The fault lies not in the stars. . . nuh-uh.

Déjà vu all over again?

Fox guarding the henhouse?

It takes one to know one?

I know there’s the South Park episode where the parents send all the kids away and build a Great Wall to protect their children from themselves, but I feel like there’s a movie that serves as an even a better metaphor. . . .

More child sex troubles at DHS.

Frank Figueroa, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security’s program to stop child predators (Operation Predator), today pleaded no contest to charges he exposed himself to a 16-year-old girl. According to the victim, “Figueroa pulled up a leg of his shorts, exposed himself and masturbated for about 10 minutes” in front of her.

Or maybe this is the metaphor for just about any staffing decision made by the Bush Administration.
