A Political Metaphor

Today I accidentally read about the sea cucumber, an echinoderm with tentacles (which actually does resemble an ambulatory cucumber). What I love about the sea cucumber is the fact that it vomits rather a lot. Whenever a predator threatens the sea cucumber, it vomits up much of its insides, almost turning itself inside-out. This vomit is incredibly toxic and can kill other marine life.

Can you smell a political metaphor here?
