Gone Fishin'

The administration has declined to release records of Abramoff meetings, saying it will not "engage in a fishing expedition."

Let's clarify the terminology.

Searching the Google records of millions of Americans is like fishing in a pond posted with "No Fishing Permitted" signs, using a stolen pole and tainted bait.

Releasing the records of the Abramoff meetings is dynamiting fish in a barrel. Given Abramoff's clientele, it's probably an oil barrel.
