Nancy Pelosi's Barbershop

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi compared the current proposal for an automotive industry bailout to a "barbershop" because everyone would be "getting a haircut in terms of the conditions." Could the term "Barbershop Bailout" be in the headlines soon?

The use of the word barbershop with this sense of meaning actually has great potential; it could be applied to anything that is going to be trimmed metaphorically. I think I will give my boys a "barbershop allowance" this week.

This is all potentially very confusing for people who get their hair cuts at home.
