I don't think many would argue that our Defense procurement system functions as if it were serving up a soup sandwich to a guy in a chicken wire canoe as he swung his football bat while wearing bowling cleats and trying to open the screen door on his submarine. How's that for a mixed metaphor?
But this tanker debacle has been going on since Christ was a corporal ( I can't stop). Our current tankers have been upgraded from their original design of a 55 gal. drum strapped to the back of a pterodactyl. Now it will be extended again?
