Your analogy is bad and you should feel bad

Mitt Romney says he'll treat the cabinet like a "board of directors." This analogy makes no sense. Directors are part-timers who hire the CEO and oversee the company. The cabinet are more like VPs and division managers: full-timers who execute the CEO's policy.

Is Mitt Romney

clueless -- he doesn't know what a board of directors does?
mendacious -- he wanted something that would sound business-y
unconventional -- as a private equity manager he's used to bossing directors around
maligned -- the Liberal Media is misquoting him
