Bunnies and rainbows

"As a pacifist who wants only bunnies and rainbows for everyone, I, of course, deplore violent macho talk ("If they bring a knife, we bring a gun") in our political discourse--I see no need for such verbal fisticuffs. (I say, If they bring a knife, we bring a lovely hostess gift.) And yet I do wonder if the delicate dispositions at NRO's Corner and Commentary's Contentions have ever heard of a) metaphor, b) The Untouchables. Personally, I see no reason why Obama should squander his stardom livening up John McCain's chloroformed town hall meetings just so McCain can draft off of Obama's charisma and appeal to Battlestar Galactica fans." — James Walcott, Vanity Fair
