    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?

    Hopelessly pedantic since 1963.

      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.
