Every election year it happens...every election year we bitch about it...every year we know it is coming...and every year the outrage is the same, it's just the names that change a little bit here and there as time stretches out...
I usually dispatch the e-mail pleadings, along with every other plea for funds from candidates, groups...and all the other junk en masse. Then The Rifleman shows up, I don't read every square inch of that, I skip a lot of the Poohbah pablum and just pick out the gun/ammo/accessory thing that might catch my eye...
Couldn't miss the pre-election cover though, a scowing menacing Darth Obola and a smug Darth Bloomie polluting the whole face of the thing!
Couldn't miss the itemized list of gun-outrages that preface this years crop of NRA-endorsed talking monkies...and noting with irony and outrage how an exposition on the evils of the gun-grabbing goons all around can lead to the endorsement of DemonRats?!?!?!
Ahh yes, NRA outrage, you've come back again! How nice.
Lets review my particular incredulous insert, and then perhaps others can join in with their own, I figure since this is almost certain to continue for as long as the nation has left to it, so might as well chronical this while we can.
OK then, I assume everybody is familiar with the NRA ratings, simple letter grades A-F with a "Q" following noting the rating was based upon questionaire, as there is no previous voting record available (probably because they are from a municipal seat more typically from a rural area who had no 2A issues, occupied their previous office without encountering any 2A issues or were too short in tenure, or they came from the private sector), anybody with a "?" is in the latter group who refused to answer the questionaire (and IMO should be graded an "F" automatically).
Anyway, Minnesota outrage:
1st District - Endorsing Walz-D (A) over Hagedorn-R (AQ). Don't know anything about Hagedorn, but surely his voting record should as good if not better in Congress on 2A issues and certainly has to be better on most every other issue. Way to go, NRA!
4th District - No endorsement, Wahlgren-R (?) & McCollum-D (F). Oh come on! This is my old district, and corpse is better than Betty fricken McCollum! Risk a "?" over and "F", WTF you got to lose? Anyway, this is a hardcore libiot district the way it is gerrymandered so this is the least of my bitches.
7th District - Peterson-D (A) over Westrom-R (A). WTF? Both got A's and you take the DemonRat? This is insane! I don't care if Westrom was caught on film with a hooker, he has to be better than this tired old DemonRat fossil!
MN AG - No endorsement, Newman-R (A) & Swanson-D (A). Seriously? They know ANYTHING about Minnesota? Swanson is a party whore through and through! How'd she get an "A"? Somebody blew somebody!!!
MN Auditor - No endorsement, Gilbert-R & Otto-D, no ratings. Seriously, come on, Rebecca Otto? Again, clueless about MN, not that an auditor has much contact with 2A issues, but on a financial periphery perhaps, why not endorse somebody? I guess they figure we have time, that their Dem's in the "A" rating won't let it all slide into the gutter, than 2A rights (despite their preceeding screed) have never been stronger and are in no particular danger after all. And if a frog had wings he would'nt bump his ass when he hops!
I didn't go through all the State Districts, mine looks to be safe and should be won by a sensible person, I'm sure there are outrages there too, but I'll leave that for others...this little effort spent my powder...I feel like all I did was, well...
All the NRA ever does is...
Anyway, thanks again NRA, for another biennial blunder!
