An insult to lemmings; lemmings in suicide vests

Lemmings-PSPI’ve been reading about the gov’t shutdown and really liked this quote from the Times today:

Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California, likened the hard-line, conservative members of his conference to “lemmings with suicide vests.” “It’s kind of an insult to lemmings to call them lemmings, so they’d have to be more than just a lemming, because jumping to your death is not enough,” he said.

P.S. I always thought lemmings were fish. I am dumb. Also, I hate rodents, so I can’t bring myself to post an actual photo of lemmings. Sorry. Makes my skin crawl.
