Oh, for cryin' out loud. This is a flippin' war, and you're afraid that someone might say something mean that the media might use. You've already surrendered to the PC police.
It's well past time to fight fire with fire. If they get in your face, you get in theirs 10X stronger. If they hit you, you hit them 10 times harder. If they pull a knife, you pull a gun. If they pull a gun, you pull the trigger.
They are the enemy, and this is a war.
Yes, it is a war. With our American Idol population, it is a war we would lose if we go Rambo.
It's fun to talk macho on the Internet, but political Judo is what we need at this point, not heavy firepower.
