Sen. Barack Obama gave the following orders to his footsoldiers yesterday in Nevada.
In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.
"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.
It is not wise to follow Obama's advice here. I think I can speak for a lot of people when I say that getting in someone's face is not a tactic that will win anyone to your side. In fact, you face an increased chance of getting a bloody nose.
So, if you want to donate blood, go to your local blood bank.
Don't get in anyone's face.
And this is the new politcs?
