Unexamined Premises

So four chicks and a metrosexual-type guy walk onto a gun range…

Don’t miss the bit around 2:16 where “confused and conflicted” Allison nearly blows away her instructor with her, um, enthusiasm; gotta work on trigger discipline there, girl! And Abe’s comment at 1:56 about bad-assery is priceless.  Dude — cock that shotgun!

The girls’ reaction at the end reminded me of this classic Blackadder sketch. “They will be slaughtered the minute we mince up the hill.”

Meanwhile, back at the Democrat-Media Complex propaganda shop known as Meet the Press, the Wall Street Journal reporter Jason Riley — author of Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed – brings a different kind of discomfiture to the faces of the gentlefolk of the Left, particularly Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, filling in for recently defenestrated host David Gregory:

The Beretta 9 mm is a dream. My favorite because I can get really good groupings with it. I also do pretty well with my Bursa Thunder. My Seecamp 32? Another story. Little pistols are not a bit easy to shoot accurately; I guess that's why they call them "belly guns."

Wishing McConnell gone is very foolish. Perhaps it's not saying that much, but he's the most conservative and best Republican leader in at least 80 years. He's also a great floor manager. Who would replace him? John Cornyn? It's hard to imagine that Cornyn would be better in any way. The biggest problem for Republicans is structural. Specifically, most Republican campaigns are funded by Washington lobbyists and Wall Street types who are more liberal and more invested in the left wing establishment than most voters. This fact, which Ross Douthat calls "Donorism" means that Republican elected officials are (1) afraid to move to far from their donors, and (2) overly influenced by their donors because they spend so much time with them.

I want to see term limits. I don't believe for one second that the FF envisioned all these congresscritters staying on & making public office a career.

" The biggest problem for Republicans is structural. "

Hogwash.


The biggest problem for Republicans is that few are men of principle.

" I am perfectly happy to cede Mitch McConnell’s seat in Kentucky to the Democrats."

Against an enemy that concedes nothing. Sounds like getting cocky to me.

Don't forget Cochran and ... So next time the political machine and special interests ram through still another zombie RINO to run against a now incumbent Democrat. Brilliant strategy. Lose the battle to win the war. It's the Stupid party not only because of leadership.

The Mississippi situation boggles my mind. A party that desperately needs to attract younger voters is not going to do it with candidates possibly suffering from Alzheimers or dementia. The establishment won the battle -- but did it hurt them in the overall war.

It is not just the Republicans, but both parties, that have an age problem in leadership. Granted that with medical advances, many are healthy much longer, but the main leaders of both parties (not talking Priebus or Wasserman-Schulz) are mainly nearing or over seventy, and should they really be taking on public office for six years? Durbin is 70, McConnell 72, Cochran 76. Reid and McCain are talking running again in two years, now at 74 and 77. Their legislative power and perks end with the grave, no matter what you believe happens afterward.

I wasn't sarcastically calling the Mississippi strategy 'brilliant' but was sarcastically calling the strategy of " I am perfectly happy to cede Mitch McConnell’s seat in Kentucky to the Democrats." 'brilliant'. It's stupid.

In what way? IF and only if McConnell's seat is superfluous to a GOP majority, then why not get rid of him? You won't be able to replace him as Leader in any other way. And he MUST go.

Well, with sufficient training, *some* liberals might be trustworthy around guns, but bagpipes? I'll have to think that over for a bit.

Heh.

A colleague of mine once lived on the border of ghetto Los Angeles. (He has since moved.)

One day the loser across the street brought out his huge stereo speakers, set them up on the porch, and cranked up the (c)rap, so he could listen while he worked outside.

My colleague, name of McPherson, brought out his little bookshelf speakers, set them on the porch, and cranked up the.....

bagpipe music.


He won. :D

If he really wanted to confuse the neighbor, he should have played a guy named Rufus Harley. Harley was a black jazz musician from Philadelphia who'd acquired an intense love of the bagpipes. As far as I know, he is the only jazz bagpiper in history or at least the only black one. Here's the Wikipedia article on him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rufus_Harley

Music is an interesting form of "warfare". I remember reading about owners of corner stores who were tired of obnoxious young people hanging around in their parking lots for extended periods. They finally succeeded in chasing them away by mounting outdoor speakers and playing classical music. Very few of those young people had any stomach for Mozart or Bach. ;-)
