Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

>> Didn’t he also say something about getting into their face?

Glenn Beck has repeatedly shown video clips of Leftists advocating violence and control through “the barrel of gun”. I’m sure he’ll replay the videos throughout the week.

I don’t joke about 2 things: the Mob and using weapons against people.

Call me melodramatic, but I grew up in Mob country, and I would prefer to keep a low profile around them. Hearing “Make them an offer they can’t refuse “ makes me cringe a little in my subconscious. You don’t have to be a wussy, but poking the bear for no good reason can be dangerous.

And the weapon thing should be obvious...they aren’t a joking matter. If somebody needs killin’ (intruder, etc.) it’s one thing, but if somebody won’t change the channel on the TV, saying “I’ll shoot you” is poor taste.

YMMV, IMHO, etc

I mentioned this to my ultra-liberal brother earlier today, as he was ranting on the phone to me about Sarah Palin and all the “hateful rhetoric...blah..blah...blah...”, and it shut him up real quick!
