    "Using a dildo to build a house" would be an analogy to using the wrong tool for the right job, which is appropriate enough but still implies that the job is being done even if shabbily.  "Using a hammer as a dildo," on the other hand, is an analogy to a complete mental clusterfuck where the wrong tool is being used for the wrong job, and nothing is being accomplished even inefficiently.  

    And that's pretty much the core analogy for Republicans today: In the past, if you told them to a build a house, they'd build some shitty sub-standard thing using the wrong materials, and that was bad enough.  But now tell them to build a house, and what they do is sell the tools for crack and then go rape goats while singing "I Wish I Was in Dixie."

    In Roviet Union, money spends YOU.
