James Taranto points out some egrigious metaphor abuse...
"From a column by Helen Thomas, American journalism's crazy old aunt in the attic:
'I have observed that whenever a major news outlet is stung
with the label
'liberal' and feels the hot breath
of ultra-right critics on its neck
, it circles the wagons
and hires yet another conservative commentator. Take PBS, for example. Running scared
after giving [Bill] Moyers the spotlight
over the years, PBS made amends by hiring two conservatives.'"
