An Unfortunate Metaphor

From Breitbart:
By way of explanation, senior adviser David Axelrod describes the president's tactics this way:

"You plant, you cultivate, you harvest. Over time, the seeds that were planted here are going to be very, very valuable.

This immediately made me think, unsettlingly, of Peter Sellers's Chance the Gardener character in his last film, Being There:

As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.
Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
Yes! There will be growth in the spring!

Maybe it's me.
