Weirdest metaphor watch

From 9/15’s NYT review of Meredith Viera’s first day on the Today Show:

NBC’s welcome was so giggly and joyous it was almost uncomfortable to watch; the staff of “Today” greeted its new co-anchor with the kind of relief and giddy happiness that enveloped Corazon Aquino after Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos were ousted.

Yeah, I know when I think of giddiness, I think of a 20-year-old political event in a different hemisphere. This is the kind of clumsiness that just embarasses the Times. They should stick to what they do well. Pop culture ain’t it.
