A Post Turtle- A great analogy!

submitted by Kathy Morgan

Post turtle compared to politicians Post turtle compared to politicians While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old rancher, whose hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Obama as our president.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle.'"

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a "post turtle" was.

The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle.'"

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.

"You know he didn't get up there by himself; he doesn't belong up there, and he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb person put him up there to begin."
