Shooting fish in a barrel

Shooting fish in a barrel

The trouble with shooting fish in a barrel is that it is so easy it gets boring. Same goes for finding another example of the pathology of being a Democrat . At some level they know it; you can always tell what they are up to, because they accuse some one else of doing it.
Here's the conclusion of a column by Jonah Goldberg:
During the primaries, Howard Dean declared, John Ashcroft "is no patriot. He's a direct descendant of Joseph McCarthy" and John Kerry declared that Bush's economic policies are "unpatriotic." When pressed on such statements, the Democrats routinely cite Bush's record on this or that.
Get it? If I point out John Kerry voted against, say, the MX Missile, I'm questioning his patriotism. But when John Kerry questions Bush's patriotism, he's merely criticizing Bush's record.

At least with the fish in the barrel you end up with fewer fish.
