I feel, though, that I must point out the double standard. Where is the liberal outrage over Barack's gun statements the other night?
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”Where is the outrage from those who abhor violence and seek to control it by controlling our use of the language. Why should the language of street thuggery be part of political dialogue? The McCain camp was quick to pounce.
“Barack Obama’s call for ‘new politics’ is officially over. In just 24 hours, Barack Obama attacked one of America’s pioneering women CEOs, rejected a series of joint bipartisan town halls, and said that if there’s a political knife fight, he’d bring a gun," McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said, referring also to the Obama campaign's shot at Carly Fiorina's lavish pay package and role in layoffs at Hewlett-Packard.The answer is, of course, that the PC crowd is so in love with Barack that he can do no wrong - this violation, which would cause fits if committed by McCain, is barely mentioned by the mainstream media. Even the blogs that have being discussing the comments have mostly focussed on the film that is the source of the line.
