3. to extend the boxing metaphor though

I kind of feel like in this bout, the opponent has wrapped his hands with plaster of paris, took the padding out of the gloves and put broken glass all over the laces, is all juiced up on steroids and has taken something so that he can't feel pain, keeps head butting and punching low, kneeing us in the balls, and has also bribed the judges...but the ref just lets it all go, meanwhile calling us out for every little infraction of the rules.

Obviously we keep fighting, as hard as we can, but if one side simply doesn't respect the rules it's kind of hard to prevail as if it's a "fair fight." At this point we're getting closer to more of an all-out street fight...possibly in a literal sense, if everyone decides to just dispense with the rule of law and take a "whatever you can get away with" approach, as the current GOP leadership seems intent on doing.
