Obama Threatens to 'Bring a Gun': What If McCain Had Done Same?

Hillary Clinton's mention of RFK's assassination was the final nail in the coffin of her candidacy. Along similar lines, can you imagine the howls of MSM outrage if John McCain were to suggest that he might "bring a gun" to his campaign against Barack Obama? Yet Obama has made just such a statement. Expect the liberal media to . . . yawn.

Said the Dem candidate at a Philly fundraiser on Friday night, anticipating Republican attacks:
If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.
Again, let's turn the tables and imagine John McCain had said it. A cyber-prize to the reader submitting the best rendering of the kind of MSM censure that would ensue.
