Has the NRA Lost It Entirely?
Quote:You’ve either seen or read about the ad: A narrator intones: “Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” (Huh? you might say.) “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.”

Of course, the NRA ignores the common sense answer to its own question: Every president’s child is protected by armed guards. They’re called the Secret Service. Outside of the fever-swamps of anti-Obama hatred, no one could possibly have a problem with that, let alone call it hypocrisy.

Just the way Fox News’s insularity and reality-denial has been a form of media and political malpractice, harming its viewers by shielding them from the Obama victory to come in 2012, the NRA has disabled itself by wallowing in anti-Obama hatred and paranoia. On the eve of the president’s big stand, when they most needed to show their supposedly formidable political muscle, instead they showed that they’re completely tone deaf and politically silly.

I've heard real live human beings repeat this stuff. They shut up pretty fast when you remind them that a "resource officer" in a school is a cop and that almost all high schools had them until Republicans cut the budget. Along with the 100,000 Cops on the Streets program. None of which keeps assault weapons from killing kindergarteners.
