An even better trick!
While reading a piece about what democracy and republican forms of government are all about, I came across this curious expression:
However, I no longer believe that Ely pulled this rather unimpressive rabbit out of his hat because he had stuffed the forlorn rodent in there to begin with.Which leads me to believe that the author either doesn't know that rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents, or that I don't understand what's going on with this expression. Even if he has it wrong though, it's a pretty good magic trick, turning a rat into a rabbit.
