Speaking of water, here's something from National Review Online: "The Republicans won in an easy trot against an ocean of money." Suddenly racehorses are gamboling in the tides. The metaphor, my friends, is all wet.

Do we talk so fast these days that we don't think through the things we compare to each other? Could be, could be. We should work to stop it, even so. When trying to persuade or inform, we shouldn't relish from readers the old horselaugh, directed our way when we get something conspicuously wrong.
