Strong analogy for Federal Reserve policy

Clean writing will make your investment commentary writing easy to read. Strong analogies will make it memorable.

I like this analogy for Federal Reserve policy from "Larry, Curly, Moe and the Economy" in Ben Stein's Jan. 13 column for The New York Times (note: free registration may be required to access the article).
...punishing the United States economy because oil prices are high is attacking the wrong culprit. It’s sort of like a Three Stooges movie in which the wrong person keeps getting hit on the head.
The Three Stooges image will make Stein's point last longer in the minds of many readers.
