Yesterday, while waiting for a church committee meeting to start, I was listening to local deejays and heard what I thought was the best metaphor for the detriment that Bill Clinton has had on his wife's campaign.
The one deejay referenced the movie Caddyshack, saying Bill was Carl Spackler, the groundskeeper played so wonderfully by Bill Murray, and Hilary was Bishop Pickering.
In the movie, the Bishop is playing golf when it starts to rain. The others in his foursome head back to the clubhouse as it starts to pour, but the Bishop is playing the best game of his life.
The rain becomes a veritable hurricane, and at one point the Bishop says to Carl, "So, what do you think?" Carl tells him, "I'd keep playing. I don't think the heavy stuff will come down for a while. " To which the Bishop replies, "You're right. Anyway, the good Lord would never disrupt the best game of my life."
And then he gets hits by lightning.
