Odd turn of phrase

I came across this odd turn of phrase while reading the NY Times this morning. It was in an article about a hot new area in Korea where the US Army is supposed to withdraw from and turn it over to the Koreans. One Army officer said that he thought it was never going to happen because, while it had been considered before, the Korean government had never been able to find another suitable site for relocation. The officer said that he thought that it was politics as usual:

"It is a great political platform for some people. It's a self-licking ice cream cone."

Self-licking ice cream cone? No idea what it means but I like it just the same. Anyone ever see this little gem before?
