from the mouths of babes

Senator Obama this weekend on the prospect of townhall debates with Senator McCain:

"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun"

Which is ironic, considering that of the "fights" that he'd inherit as Commander in Chief of this country, he would prefer to use:

a) an order of retreat (as is the case in Iraq); and
b) the habeas writ (as in the case of the war on terrorists vis-a-vis the Boumediene decision).

It's funny how he's so willing to attack--even in imagery--fellow Americans with any tool in the arsenal, but against people actually trying to hurt his fellow Americans, he'd rather use nothing more than paper.

Now I know that in the childhood game, paper beats rock. But I have news for you, Senator: that's a childhood game. In real life, paper only beats other paper.

And paper doesn't stand a chance against bombs.
