Tarring the Baby

An incident on my brother's favorite radio show has been drawing national attention. Some dumbass Republican compared Obama's policies to a "a tar baby and you get it... you know you're stuck, and you're part of the problem now, and you can't get away."

He's since apologized and good for him. I get the "tar baby" metaphor, but something like "tractor beam" would have been just as descriptive with less racial overtones.
