If you thought the assault on the NRA endorsements ended with the Harry Reid send-off, you are sorely mistaken. Apparently the NRA must now receive approval from certain “uncompromisable” bloggers (and probably not NRA members) before being able to think about publishing any kind or release endorsing anybody or anything. Here is the funny thing: they are talking about candidates that have come to their attention only because the NRA endorsed them and somebody did not like it. We have people criticizing the NRA for endorsing somebody they know nothing about five states over where they live, but since somebody told them that the NRA should have gone the other way just because, now they are pouncing as if the NRA-PVF was endorsing the offspring of Pol-Pot and Aileen Wuornos. There is a difference between critical analysis and rabid deprecatory speech but they somehow seem to miss the difference.
But what really ticks me off is that the “critics” feel that you, me and everybody else are too frigging dumb to make our own decisions and that we will blindly follow what the NRA says. How dare they? Who died and made you Lord Overseer Reader and Controller of the Minds? How come do you have the tse-tse fly induced inflated testicles to assume I am some idiotic low form of sub-par life incapable of making my own analysis and that you must come to the rescue of my poor feeble mind? Incidentally, isn’t that the same thing the opposition does? That we are too dumb to make the decisions about having guns and that we are not smart enough, prepared enough or ready enough to exercise our Second amendment rights? Why are you doing the same thing about my right to vote?
I and many Gun Owners are smart enough to look all over the issues pertaining a candidate and we will weigh carefully our decision before popping the chad, pulling the lever or pushing the button. So stop telling me and everybody else for whom to vote. If you feel the need to strong arm somebody to have them vote the way you want it, go join the New Black Panther Party or local Union.
PS: Now, if you feel that strong about having the NRA measure each possible combination in life before endorsing anyone, I propose that they should go through the following list and gave us their pickings before they do anything else.
Dear NRA: Please choose the one you want to endorse and explain carefully if you want my vote and a nice post in my blog:
- Best TV father: Homer Simpson, Mike Brady, Archie Bunker.
- Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler as judges for American idol.
- Taste Great or Less Filling. (I know, I am that old)
- Pepsi One or Coke Zero.
- Rocky Road, Butter Pecan or Moose Tracks.
- Old Hawaii 5-0 or New Hawaii 5-0.
- 9mm vs .45acp. vs .40 S&W.
- Tactical Black, Army Digital Cammo or MarPat.
- Best fries are from McDonalds or Burger King or Wendy’s.
- Blondes, Brunettes or Redheads.
(Note: No matter how you answer, it will be the wrong thing.)
