I've always liked the idiom Paper Tiger.  Would that be death by 1000 paper cuts?


A paper tiger is someone who at first glance seems to be in charge but who, on closer examination, is completely powerless.
This phrase comes from an old Chinese idiom, which describes a paper tiger as a "blustering, harmless fellow," and which was popularized when Mao Zedong was quoted in 1956 calling the United States a paper tiger.
