Another tired sports metaphor:…3-2-1 Obama shoots

Over dinner at a Thai restaurant in Pittsburg during NN09, we were discussing the level of wing nuttery at town hall meetings.

I suggested that we should show Obama some patience because the screamers would increase their level of crazy and marginalize themselves, soon to be followed by the Republican base baiters and Blue Dogs.

I said that perhaps Obama would then step forward coolly an calmly and cut their nuts off.

Someone then aptly called this Obama’s Rope-a-Dope.  

Well, since The Big O enjoys his hoops, I have changed that tired sports metaphor to this new tired sports metaphor.

Obama at the buzzer for 3.  It’s good! Game over
