This Just In – The NRA Really is Evil Incarnate

Let’s be honest. Nothing David Keane or Wayne LaPierre could have said this morning — short of announcing they’re disbanding the behemoth gun rights group and donating all accumulated funds to the Joyce Foundation and the Brady Campaign — would have satisfied the anti-gun forces lining up in Congress to try to roll back Second Amendment rights or the members of the fourth estate who provide a convenient echo chamber for Second Amendment opponents everywhere. As such, the sampling of tweets accumulated at twitchy.com and other Interwebz sites shouldn’t come as any surprise. So if LaPierre’s looking for a sign of how successful (or not) his presentation and proposal were, the hail of eggs and rotten vegetables sailing his way from pols, journos and members of the entertainment community are probably as accurate an contra-indicator as he’ll find.
