  •  shame on all of us (5+ / 0-)

    for letting a nasty group like the NRA and in particular someone as odious as LaPierre take control of the national politcal dialogue.

    One thing mentioned in his speech, and rather lost in the crush of other stories about Newtown, is that the shooter's mother was a "prepper," one of the very sad people who spend their lives in terror over various, unnamed potential disasters, but who seem to have cellars full of canned goods and guns. TPM has a good story on it here.  

    In looking at pictures of LaPierre, I find him rather pathetic. And it looks as if his dentures don't fit.

      That he might have appeared "conciliatory", and offered to support some modest new regs. that looked good but achieved little.

      I need to worry less!

      What he did is push the NRA even further to the frothing-at-the-mouth right, and may indeed have hastened the end of the NRA as a political force.

      There is a tidal wave coming, and the NRA is sitting on the beach enjoying a picnic of hate and violence.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

        but the still pictures I saw looked as if his dentures don't fit. Which I'm sure is a legitimate problem for some, but in this case made him even more ridiculous.

        These people do not rise to the level of anything to be taken seriously. They are ridiculous. They should be laughed off the public stage of this nation.
