" Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon.
The pigeon knocks over all the pieces , shits on the board
and then struts around like it won the game"

Vladimir Putin, 2013 Another myth. Its earliest recorded expression came in a March 2005 user-submitted review of the book Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction on Amazon.com, which applied the imagery to a debate between the two camps referenced in the book's title. Something to the effect that evolution is like "playing chess with a pigeon..." Been used conveniently over the years, just substitute the name you wish to disparage.
