Hillary Clinton has dropped some TV spots promoting her candidacy for President of the United States. Hillary Clinton Tells Her Late Mother’s Heartbreaking Story in First TV Campaign Ads people.com pronounces. What’s that 80’s expression? Gag me with a spoon. Meanwhile, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has released the above video Making Machine Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz. Nice contrast, ballsy move, coulda used a hat tip to FPSRussia, but . . .

the ace debater never goes full auto.

As you expect, the comments underneath the video range from harsh to whatever’s exponentially greater than harsh. “You’re a FUCKING IDIOT, Ted Cruz,” Tom Hanson opines. That’s just the pithy tip of vitriolic iceberg. And it’s early days.

That said, there are a few attaboys. And others (like your correspondent) are more concerned about the cooking technique: “Probably takes a week to get all the bacon grease off your gun after doing that,” 0mn1vore comments. “and the salt… Salt is really bad for metal, probably makes actual gun owners cringe just watching this.” Strangely, motherjones.com is firmly in that camp.

Though Cruz’s machine gun strategy makes sense for his campaign, it seems like a poor strategy for cooking bacon. The tasty grease is wasted, and you can only cook one strip at a time.

You can ding Cruz for the firearms nomenclature, but Cruz is 100 percent pro-gun and not afraid to show it. My kinda guy.

  1. It had me laughing.
    Ok it is goofy, and yes not the best way to make bacon but….

    The comments from the left trolls are fast and furious. I bet CNN will do an expose on it tonight, oh the horror!

    And how much did the press coverage cost good old Ted? The cost of Ammo and some bacon!

    If that is the kind of fiscal thinking he will bring to the white house, let us ponder that for a moment….

    • but ask yourself how much did this goofy stunt cost his party? First his Dr. Seuss foolishness and now his Bacon 101 class….it’s got to make you wonder what kind of mentality he’s trying to appeal to.

    • What’s the current NFA wait time? The election might’ve been over before Ted could buy a full-auto rifle…

      • He’s a State Senator, so he could probably get fast tracked. Or get the ATF to approve him to purchase a new machine gun.

  2. Hmmmm…may have to wrap several strips around one of my suppressors, and do a mag dump. Bet I could get 6 strips around my Specwar. 🙂

  3. That’s the most ridiculous narrow minded insensitive goof-ball thing I have seen a politician do since Bill and Monica.
    He has my vote!!

    Just kidding about everything….except the vote.

  4. Now that is what I call “Makin Beacon”
    Reminds me of the dude that does the beer commercials, (Stay thirsty my friend).
    He said, ” I don’t always talk to vegans, but when I do, it’s with a mouth full of beacon”

  5. I prefer the ad from the Congressional candidate (I forget – some state south of the Mason-Dixon line) who shot up a printed copy of Obamacare with a rifle.

    Not only are there better ways to make breakfast, there are better ways to use firearms in political ads.

  6. I wonder what kind of support he would garner if he started talk of removing/heavily modifying NFA law.

    A guy can dream can’t he?

  7. Yeah, we know – just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

    And I wouldn’t. Not with one of my guns.

    But I’m glad somebody did.

  8. Pretty cheap way to make a political ad but very expensive way to cook bacon. Just sayin. Cool ad though.

    • 100% correct. How people don’t instantly recognize this kind of blatant pandering is completely beyond me.

        • Some level of pandering is to be expected from politicians, but when it’s condescending, then you should worry. Cruz graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law and was a loyal, big government Bushie long before he cynically sought to surf the Tea Party wave.
