"What do Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama have in common?"
Think about it. Did you get it?? The answer's below:
Guns, Paranoia and Obama Assassination Jokes: Inside the NRA's Annual Convention

Burke is a loud and boastful retired lance corporal who displays a photo of himself with NRA Executive Vice President & CEO Wayne LaPierre on his professional website. The only thing he abhors more than gun control is silence.
When a conversation about former New York Governor George Pataki's pro-gun record entered a lull, he asked the group what sounded like an American history riddle or piece of trivia: "What do Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama have in common?"

The collective intelligence of the minibus was stumped. After a few beats, he delivered the answer: "Nothing. Yet."

I couldn't even read the rest of the article.

WE get called on the carpet by some on dkos for just saying FUCK or criticizing GOP catholics, guns, war and yet people of 'priviledge' are allowed to convene and banter about assassination.. and so many people support the NRA and what THEY represent.

I hope the Secret Service visits that Burke asshole.

No wonder there has been an increase of Homeland Security Spying. Our POTUS is a hunted man and so many, even here, seem to scoff it off.

Where is the outrage from those GOOD GOP xtians, gun owners and people??

I'm beginning to believe They don't exist! I think they are "ALL IN" (The NRA slogan to defeat Obama).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
