Block that metaphor!

Heard on CNBC this morning. A BlackRock exec talking about current federal efforts to wind down AIG:

"We've got to patch up this spilled milk that poisoning the system."

"We've got a fire going now, we've got to tackle that with everything."

See, that's the whole problem with the government's approach to the financial crisis. Too many fires getting tackled. Hoses, guys, hoses. Not linebackers.
