Oscar: Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.
MacIntosh: You’ll want to tell that to Gabby Giffords if she comes out of her coma.
Oscar: Did words hurt that lady?
MacIntosh: A crazy guy hurt Gabby Gifford. But we would be crazy to not wonder if the words he heard had some effect.
Oscar: What kind of words?
MacIntosh: For all we know the guy in Tucson was just trying to “take his country back” with some “2nd amendment remedies” by eliminating a politician ‘targeted’ by Sarah Palin because when “ballots don’t work, bullets do”.
Oscar: Did Sarah say that thing about bullets and ballots?
MacIntosh: Nope…that was a right-wing shock jock. Sarah said you shouldn’t retreat…just reload.
Oscar: Yikes…that sounds like something a soldier would say.
MacIntosh: Yep…and that’s what soldiers should say. But it’s not what our political leaders should say.
Oscar: They should be nice huh, MacIntosh?
MacIntosh: They should protect us from our enemies not make us enemies of each other.
Oscar: Cuz divided we fall huh MacIntosh?
