Default The "Wolf Closest to the Sled"

GEN Petraeus has referred to al Qaeda in Iraq as the "wolf closest to the sled."

Now, from a strategic communications standpoint, I like the use of homesy metaphors, but have some issues with that. Simply put, it sounds too darned Russian.

So I propose that we use our collective brain (and I'm assuming that there's only one that we rotate around among us) to come up with a better homesy metaphor for AQI

I'm still working on it, but I'm thinking of things like:

--A porcupine in the outhouse
--The flea closest to the dog's butt
--A Tennessean in Tiffany's
--Satan's socks

You get the drift. Chip in and do your part for national defense.
