Random thought...

Ok, if we are paying attention to the election coverage, we have noticed the progression of the Obamessiah from Lefty Liberal to Cool Centrist over the last few weeks. I think it stands out that he's shifted so much on his attitude toward private gun ownership, from the standard National Democrat position of "only the police and military should have guns" to a moderate "private gun ownership is fine, the Supreme Court says so." As we've seen in elections past, when the Democrat candidate takes a shift of positions like this, as the election nears, the candidate usually picks up a shotgun, dons a camo jacket, and trots across a field with news crews in tow, to show how rugged and macho his is, how he supports the sportsmen, and how he's "not going to take away your duck-hunting rifles." (Actually uttered by Bubba Clinton!) What I'm wondering is, when the Obamessiah drifts that far and wants to "get outdoors," should Dick Cheney send him an invite?

I don't think he'll ever do that. I'll be very surprised if he does.

Careful, Matt... that kind of thing makes one think you're going back on all the time you said the people making fun of Dick Cheney's hunting accident just want to demonize guns and conservatives. Don't flip-flop... that's the road to being a Liberal.

Admittedly, though, I lol'd.

Nonsense! The Liberals would never flip-flop! You're remembering things wrong, you should have consulted the Ministry of Truth before uttering such slanderous things! Too many more statements like that and someone could become an unperson!

Yes. Dick should send him the invite...take him out hunting somewhere, show him how it's done.

That was great!
