Somebody Knows His Classic Film Lines

Posted by Phoenix Woman on June 15, 2008

From The Hill today:

Barack Obama is warning supporters that the general election fight between him and John McCain may get ugly, but the Illinois senator is vowing not to back down.

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a fundraiser in Philadelphia Friday, according to pool reports.

“We don’t have a choice but to win,” Obama said, joking that he has heard “folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles games.”

Obama was, of course, referencing a famous line by Sean Connery’s character, Jim Malone, in The Untouchables:

Malone: You wanna know how to get Capone? 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! And that’s how you get Capone.

Predictably, RNC spokesperson James Conant clutched his pearls in fake outrage. Which to me means: Hit ’em again, Barack! Get the table!
