Senators Do Bad, Feel No Shame
If only the people would remind their elected officials that although the NRA can give politicians seas of money, only the people can give them votes.
I expect that, in the wake of the explosions at the finish of the Boston Marathon, we will hear a spokesman for the NRA declare that "The only way to stop a bad man with a bomb, is a good man with a bomb." I do not expect the spokesman to admit that what stands between the weapons manufacturers and twenty murdered children, is the NRA.
*Clarification: By "defeating," I of course mean "filibustered" so that there was no actual vote on the actual measure.
