Remember - Before making an important decision, or taking critical action, ask yourself: What Would Bob Do?
Senator Obama, appearing at a rally in Philadelphia, attempted to prepare his followers for an ugly campaign. Quoting Sean Connery’s character in The Untouchables, he said, “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun.”
The crowd gasped as Bob Mitchum strode across the stage. He pulled a long, cardboard tube from the recesses of his trench coat, smacked Obama across the nose with it, and emptied a rolled-up parchment from the tube, laying it out on the podium.
“Read it”, Mitchum ordered, smiling around his cigarette, and staring with hooded, merciless eyes at the Democratic presidential candidate.
Obama, pinching his nose and holding his head back, asked timorously, “What is it?”
“The Bill of Rights. Take a gander at the second amendment, the one you and your crowd have been trampling for years. Just what kind of ‘gun’ are your pals going to bring?”
Mitchum suddenly extracted a .45 cal. pistol from his shoulder holster, shot out the lights, and vanished under the cover of darkness.
