Explaining the NRA’s roots during the same June 2012 speech, [Jim] Porter said, ‘NRA was started 1871 right here in New York state. It was started by some Yankee generals who didn’t like the way my Southern boys had the ability to shoot in what we call the ‘War of Northern Aggression.’ Now y’all might call it the Civil War, but we call it the ‘War of Northern Aggression’ down south.”
I’m sure he’ll be a reasonable voice in the gun debate.

Democrats didn’t lose the sequester fight today. Democrats have spent the last few decades losing the sequester fight. They lost it long before it even began, because they’ve done absolutely no pushback against the notion that government budgets are riddled with colossal amounts of waste, the elimination of which is all we need to have balanced budgets and low taxes and a happy dance around the maypole to celebrate our widespread abundance.

Maybe it’s because you used bigots, idiots, and sociopaths to win elections for the last 50 years:
Frank Luntz, the media-friendly Republican consultant and word wiz, told a group of college students this week that Rush Limbaugh and right-wing talk radio are “problematic” for the GOP and partly responsible for the stark polarization within the nation’s political discourse. He only dared to speak so candidly about Limbaugh and other conservative hosts off the record. A secretly recorded video, though, captured Luntz’s remark.
Some say we need a renewed, less hateful GOP in the opposition. I say fuck ‘em. Let them all be cast into the political darkness for the damage they have done, the lives they have ruined, and the social programs they have destroyed. Fuck all of them.

Sessions – too dumb and too racist to be a federal judge.
“Jon Stewart is pretty great at skewering Donald Trump, and Donald Trump is pretty good at typing on an electronic device in order to post a short message on Twitter. Trump struggles in this asymmetrical warfare. On Wednesday, he lowered himself — a major feat in itself — to outing Jon Stewart as a Jew. ‘I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz – I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated,” Trump tweeted. He then defended his hair, claiming it is not a wig.” [The Atlantic Wire]
