Yesterday, Obama explained his willingness to be tough on John McCain by paraphrasing Sean Connery in The Untouchables: "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."
That line should have particular relevance to Obama, given it described life in Chicago. The full quote, of course is:
You wanna know how you do it? Here's how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way.I understand Obama's a big fan of The Godfather. This campaign's gonna be fun.
