    A sitting duck is an easy target.

    But it's not a 'euphemism'. A euphemism is when you say someone 'passed on' instead of 'died'. It's a word that tries to make the hard reality sound a little easier to bear.

    Yes. It's not a euphemism; it's a metaphor.

    Not really a euphemism, but the meaning is correct.

    While it may be considered an idiom, "sitting duck" is more like a simile.

    Just sayin'.
