  •  and all it took was 20 shot-up children (11+ / 0-)

    to get him to leave his self-imposed conservative fantasy land and return to reality. good for him . . . i guess.

      this from a man for whom blow jobs were more important than the lessons of Columbine or Oklahoma City.

      If he walks the walk instead of just talking the talk, I'll revise my opinion. I'm glad he admitted his former adherence to those who obstructed gun control, but to me it was still insufficient. There have been other high profile massacres this year, though I suppose none quite so ghastly, as if there's a difference between 27 people killed for no reason as opposed to 4 or 5 killed for no reason. It took the violent deaths of young grade schoolers to shock Joe's conscience. Given his continued cheerleading for the right wing agenda, it seems to me the only logical response to the harm he's participated in creating would be to retire from his show forthwith. We know that won't happen, so if from here on he becomes a passionate advocate for an assault weapons ban with real teeth, I'll send him a thank you note. As of now he sounds like a guy who finds himself on the wrong side of an issue with a crying wife at home, and he doesn't feel like sleeping on the couch tonight.

      I'm sorry to be snide, but I had to let that out. Naturally I welcome anyone who comes to the correct side of this issue, however tortuous the path to their arrival might be.
