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.
