C’mon people, really? Vice President Joe Biden uses a gun metaphor about aspiring Vice President Paul Ryan’s gun metaphor and we’re supposed to get our proverbial knickers in a twist? I reckon pundits who pillory pols for firing-off gun metaphors to target voters is shooting blanks. Besides, is anyone who’s surprised when Joltin’ Joe comes out all guns blazing, rhetorically speaking? The delicious irony: the left-leaning, gun control supporting media are the ones up in arms. “The race for president has tightened,” washingtonpost.com reports with characteristic insight. “And perhaps it has become uncomfortably close out west.” Perhaps. Perhaps not. Maybe the WaPo should just bite the bullet and do some straight shooting on their election campaign coverage. I know: them’s fighting words! Or not.
