    Carhartbagger!

    The greatest trick the GOP ever played was convincing the devil they had a soul to sell.

      Only if the Carhartts look like they are right out of the bag, wrinkles and all. No elbow wear, clean collar, no dirt on the knees, thighs, or butt. Same thing applies to politicians hunting. Unless I see your buck tied across the hood of your car/truck, you're just doing it for a photo-op.

      I remember seeing tourists spend thousands of dollars on fly-fishing gear while I was trying to find the cheapo folding fishing rod best suited for high mountain lakes. We used to use PVC pipes as rod carriers. None of this fancy prepackaged crap, our goal was to get in where no tourists were fishing.
