Obama Perpetuates Philadelphia Eagle Fan Stereotypes

While Barry Obama has vowed to bring change in American politics, it apparently doesn't apply to his actual campaign for presidency. When referring to how he would do to counter Republican attacks, the Senator said, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Fair enough. Politics today is a dirty sport, and he seems up to the fight. Such is the reality of political campaigning that we live in today. Despite his calls for civility, Sen. Obama is ready to fight.

But, what's amusing is that he said this at a Philadelphia fundraiser, and so Obama couldn't help but use the words to draw comparison to the City of Brotherly Love's notorious football fans: "“Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans."

Inappropriate, Barry. Inappropriate.”

Wonder how this relates to Mayor Nutter's anti-gun campaign. Maybe he needs to lay the Nut down.

"Hey, don't sing it. Bring it."

I mean, I'd be offended, but the man speaks truth. What is the greatest single moment in Eagles history? Bednarik ending Gifford's career. Oh yes, we do enjoy a good fight.
