Pieczenik goes on to hit the ball out of the fences every single timePosted: March 31, 2022
This one was found in a Daily Beast article about Ginni Thomas’s (wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas) election fraud claims. It was uttered by comedian Jordan Holmes:
it is a conflation of “swing for the fences” (to act or perform with great energy and effort) and “hit it out of the park” (perform something extraordinarily well). Both are idioms related to baseball, which no doubt caused the mental mixup. A big thank you to John Kooser for spotting this one.
