Best Comeback Ever.
General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently. You’ll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!
This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
We’re going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That’s a bit irresponsible, isn’t it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don’t see why, they’ll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Don’t you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don’t see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But you’re equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Ma’am, you’re equipped to be a prostitute, but you’re not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.

Re: Best Comeback Ever.
Crude, but he certainly got his point across.

And should it be that we shall never meet again,
Know that I will always keep you in my heart,
And I will search for you in that time beyond time
Until we do meet again, and you will know
That love and family are the miracles of the world.

Re: Best Comeback Ever.
Brilliant reply... I hate those journalists with a vendetta to prove that all of the military are murderers and rapists.

side note, when I was in eighth grade, I went up to Picatinny Arsenal (a research and development facility near me) for armed forces day. At the time I aspired to go into the Marine Corps, do the whole oorah thing, and I went near the marine corps tent where they were allowing people to fire off a strip of 8 blanks from the Squad Automatic Weapon. A reporter took a picture of me being assisted by a Marine to shoulder and fire the weapon correctly, a week later, a whole bunch of letters came pouring in to the editor that it was wrong and terrible for the paper to show a child with a gun, especially in light of the Columbine shootings.

Even at the age of 14... I sparked controversy

Re: Best Comeback Ever.
You? Sparking controversy? Nawwwwww.
Really? Nawwwwww <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Did they even bother to ask you about it, or was it just a bunch of grown-ups bawking about poor pitiful impressionable kids?

Re: Best Comeback Ever.
I was asked by a teacher, and my reply was something like: "Well, God forbid a youth who aspires to armed service in defense of his country go to an event where he learns the proper safety rules for firearms and gets to see what it's like hunkered down and laying out fire while supervised by men he hopes to join the ranks with one day."
