Recently, Sara Palin said about Obama's nuke policy:
You know that's kinda like getting out there on the playground, a
bunch of kids ready to fight and one of the kids saying 'Go ahead,
punch me in the face and I'm not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do
what you want to with me.'"
Obama responded with an ad hominem attack on her.
It seems to me a law professor would defend Obama's position with
either a better or what he or she considers a more
appropriate analogy or an analogy that cuts the heart out of Palin's
analogy. So my question, is what analogies might he used in response
