“My adversaries are always playing the same cassette tape. Let’s call it a cassette tape because they will play it often given that Ms. Mrois has nothing to say on the economy,” Mr. Charest said. “We know it, we’ll frequently hear that cassette tape.”

In fact, one could say that Mr. Charest’s uses his line about the “cassette tape” so often that he is also starting to sound like a tape deck. It probably takes one to know one.
