The best Francophilic Zionism in the blogosphere
I love that a commenter refers to the U.S. government's plan to promote cheese as "Reminiscent of the worst excesses of the French Revolution."

fish in a barrel,
It's a literary (subliterary?) reference. P. G. Wodehouse. Bertie Wooster's Aunt Agatha.
Ah! I'll need to check that out then.
Actually, I think that's originally from Lady Bracknell in "The Importance of Being Earnest," when she's castigating the main character for being unsure of his familial origins. But I don't recall its having anything to do with cheese in that context.
