Tea Partiers-Scary Monsters Analogy?

When I first started reading this editorial by Maureen Dowd, I thought it might be a good example of analogy to share with classes when covering the "analogy" portion of a cause-and-effect unit.

As I continued reading, the article got weirder and weirder. I totally don't get the last line.

So, this one might still be worth sharing with a class ... more for the entertainment value, though, than as an example of a good analogy.

Update: Here's a response to Dowd's weird article in which the author, Charlie Cooke, takes issue with her analogies.
