    I really hate violent metaphors like this.

    Can the title be something like "Grayson calls out the 'Liar' Alan Greenspan" or something that doesn't involve violence?

    Just sayin'

    Hopelessly pedantic since 1963.

        Just because it is "commonly used" doesn't mean I have to like it.

        Perhaps the fact that violent metaphors like this one, the fact that the Government is always engaging in "Wars" against everything (Poverty, Drugs, etc.), and torture-porn masquerading as entertainment such as "24" and the "Saw" movies are reasons that the violent rhetoric coming from the right wing is being pooh-poohed so much by the mainstream media?

          It's a repulsive and meaningless cliche.  Anyone who is a decent writer can come up with something more descriptive to explain what happened.  

          Unfortunately, there are some pretty badly written, cliche-ridden diaries here.
