I'm sick and tired of being told that "the gloves are coming off" or "the gloves came off" after each political debate in this current run up to the Presidential election.
Exactly how many pairs of gloves did Clinton, Obama, et al. don before the politicking began? They must have looked like boxers. How else can they afford to peel off another set of gloves every day or so?
It is time to retire the cliché, don't you think?
